Eldridge vs. CWC
Fresh off an election-day loss, former congressional candidate Sean Eldridge has drawn a line in the sand with some comments he made.
Eldridge, a Democrat, lost the race for New York State's 19th Congressional District to Republican incumbent Chris Gibson on Nov. 4.
Prior to the election, Eldridge, who owns the investment firm Hudson River Ventures, was interviewed by the online Watershed Post about the importance of lending money to small businesses in the Catskills.
He criticized the Catskill Watershed Corporation regarding economic development, saying that it was "sitting on the resources" and having trouble sourcing projects.
CWC's executive director, Alan Rosa, sent Eldridge a letter citing "inaccuracies" in his comments. No word on any response from Eldridge.
