THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
The majority of St. Lawrence County legislators want the state to investigate District Attorney Mary Rain for a variety of issues that have occurred since she took office in 2014, including a lawsuit brought by a former employee. Such an investigation has the potential to have her removed from office depending on the findings, but could also cost the county tens of thousands of dollars.
Would you like to see a state investigation of the St. Lawrence County District Attorney?
Results will be posted Monday, May 2.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
St. Lawrence County residents may soon be required to put all trash in clear bags. County legislators will be asked later this year to approve the measure as part of updated waste disposal local laws designed to keep more recyclables out of landfills.
Are you in favor of requiring clear trash bags so that more items get recycled?
