Finally, that dead horse won’t be beaten any longer. Albany’s Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless has won their battle to serve the West Hill community against the wishes of County Legislator Merton Simpson and his questionable wife, Joyce Love. Both have collected petitions, pulled all the political strings available to them and spoken publically against serving the needy in their needy community.
Why? Why would a County Legislator and wannabe wife fight so ferociously to keep needed services from their community? I’ll tell ya why, because the facility will be serving the public from a former school building across the street from their house on Sheridan Avenue.
Justice Kimberly O’Conner sided with the community after Love, with the support of Simpson, and her co-petitioners, filed a dying effort with an Article 78 to keep the facility out of their community. Read the decision here! At least the death of this battle frees up Joyce Love to focus more time on her petitioning to represent the community she wants to represent….as long as it’s not in her back yard.
