Current Walden Mayor Bill Trohanis is not the first politician to claim credit for something not deserved. Trohanis’s campaign materials suggest that he is responsible for just about everything good that has happened in Walden in recent years.
One of the mayor’s boasts relates to the McCoy Farm. However the major successes of the McCoy Farm & Gardens have continued despite the efforts of our current mayor. In 2014 he proposed selling part of McCoy Farm to raise revenue for the town. Following that, in 2015, he labored to put the new Walden’s Ridge Emergency Service complex on the McCoy Farm property.
These efforts, had he succeeded with these bad ideas, would have destroyed the McCoy Farm that we enjoy and utilize as a beautiful and very unique asset for Walden.
We need to express loudly our appreciation to the hundreds of volunteers who spent thousands of volunteer hours to rehabilitate that glorious property.
These volunteers are the ones who deserve the credit, and I hope Mayor Trohanis will join me in recognizing them.
