Response to ‘Make it easy to come to downtown Warwick’

    As I sit here and read another letter from Patrick Gallagher, I can't help but chuckle.
    It’s laughable that Mr. Gallagher wants to criticize the "glaring eyesore of a hopelessly stalled project" that is "Cannibalizing old neighborhoods?"
    I’m sorry, but did I miss something? Isn’t it you and your cohorts that are the reason this project is being stalled? You would think they were putting up a Chuck-E-Cheese or a Home Goods.
    You’re fighting tooth and nail against a local businessman who has had an establishment in the Village of Warwick long before you moved here.
    Talk about being a "good neighbor."
    So please, don’t try to play us for fools.
    And to top it off, then as a suggestion to alleviate parking concerns, Mr. Gallagher wants to suggest parking with solar canopies.
    Funny, that’s exactly what business you are in, isn’t it, Mr. Gallagher?
    Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a sustainable, eco-friendly solution to the problems Warwick faces. I’m just tired of having to listen to a man that just likes to hear himself talk, and wants to parade around town like he’s some model citizen.
    There are plenty of families who have been here for generations, long before you moved here, sir, mine being one of them.
    And those families have watched Warwick change year in, year out, for better or worse, and yet somehow it’s still a model town.
    So maybe it is you that needs to take a breath. And quite possibly, have a drink.
