11th-Hour Push To Block 

Administrator Job Fails

A last-ditch effort by county Rep. Ed Frazier, R-Unadilla, to block the new county-administrator position failed at the February meeting of the Otsego County Board of Representatives on the 5th. A resolution was introduced setting the salary at $100,000, and Frazier said the money can be better used. After lively debate, only Keith McCarty, R-East Springfield, voted against setting the salary level and advertising to fill the new position. The discussion begins at 1:50:31 on the videotape.  The county board also approved raising the county bed tax by 2 percent.  Seated next to Frazier are county Reps. Adrienne Martini and Clark Oliver, both Oneonta Democrats.  On the dias is County Attorney Ellen Coccoma.
