We need to be realistic about this. A facility such as RYAN House is an absolute necessity.
Government alone can’t do the job of helping everyone in our community. And the problem of addiction is only getting worst. If, and when, the meth crisis – that’s spreading like fire everywhere in the country – strikes the Hudson Valley full force, we’ll need more resources like RYAN to cope with the resulting problems.
I’m also curious to know what the source of Ms. LeBlanc’s 15-20% property devaluation assertion. Can this devaluation quote be supported by any published data?
My hat is off to Carole and Vincent Kelder. I applaud them for their selfless concern and generosity.
