To the Editor:
In the article “Promised Funds Make State Budget,” in the Feb. 3 issue of The WIRE, I don’t feel that RIOC Board Member Margie Smith got her due.
When Cornell Tech requested that the State-owned Loop Road be annexed to the City land that they had been given by then Mayor Michael Bloomberg, it was Margie’s idea to ask for monetary compensation for it. Margie brought the idea to RIOC and the Board of Directors and didn’t give up.
Thank you, Margie, for continuing to fight for the residents.
