Mayor’s Message [WANTED Edition]
Dear Residents and Friends of the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson,
This, why I do so enjoy the discoveries by the Village’s Records Management Clerk, Barbara Pflughaupt. How about this gem – a posted WANTED decree from the Village Board of Trustees seeking information leading to the arrest and conviction of the trespassing rapscallion(s) behind the after-hours “destroying [of] books, plugging locks and [commission of] other depredations” at the old Cornwall-on-Hudson Library, all during the Roaring Twenties? Absolute GOLD.
One can only wonder what those “depredations” were -- left as ambiguous vagaries by then Village Clerk Fred B. King and noticed on behalf of the Village Board on August 1, 1925.
We’ve located no subsequent posting of the successful apprehension(s) by COHPD within our 1925 records. So, the 2023 Village Board encourages all residents to keep their eyes peeled. If you see something, say something. Let’s locate and bring to justice these vandals – all of whom must be aged around 120 years old now. Justice delayed is justice denied.
With tongue planted firmly in cheek and on behalf of your Village Board,
James A. “Jimmy” Gagliano
