Kiryas Yoel, election issue

Times Herald-Record :

Orange County executive candidate Michael Edelstein stood beside Route 105 outside Kiryas Joel yesterday morning to accuse his opponent of ignoring one of the county's most contentious growth issues.
Edelstein said County Executive Edward Diana has done too little to defuse tension between the densely populated Hasidic community and its neighbors over the rapid development and potential expansion of Kiryas Joel.
The Democrat also chastised Diana over Kiryas Joel's proposed water pipeline. He said the county should have tried to lead the environmental review for the $22 million project, rather than sue later to correct deficiencies in the village's analysis
