There is less traffic on Rt. 50 going to Saratoga and Glenville now. Did you forget that "GE" and Alco are mostly GONE. That's much less traffic than when people went to work and came home at a set time. The people that travel to and from the Casino will be traveling at different times.
Glenville is trying to get the developers and the city of Schenectady to pay for there dreams. So many of these people moved out of the city to have there homes in the rural area. Now Glenville get the taxes. Now they can spend it on there own town.

Totally agree with both of you. Koetzle can't do his job right and spews out uninformed information. There are much more important areas in Glenville that need improving- stop playing favorites and let the small business person succeed. We found it quite funny that the sign for the new Socha building was up before it was "approved" -Do something about the weed infested political sign catch all across from Price Chopper, pave secondary roads, stop intimidating residents of a neighborhood where lights from a football field will shine in there windows late at night, .....shall I go on? Let's not forget that Koetzle felt the job was too much for him and needed an assistant - the assistant that had "retired" Tell me that wasn't a plan!!! He will never get our vote again or the votes of people in my neighborhood
