POTSDAM TOWN CLERK SAYS GRIFFO SHOULD SUPPORT SALES TAX HIKE—Cindy Goliber--who is President of the State Association of Town Clerks--said Tuesday she is speaking as an “everyday citizen” when she supports the efforts by the majority of St. Lawrence County Legislators seeking to get home rule legislation that would allow a one-percent hike. Local Senator Joe Griffo does not support it outright, preferring it go to referendum. Goliber says the sales tax rate in Griffo's home area near Utica is 8.75 percent, and St. Lawrence County's is currently 7. Griffo is a Republican, so is Goliber.
