COOPERSTOWN – Hudi Poldolsky, Jay Bosley and Aviva Schneider want to make sure that everyone in Cooperstown has a chance to make their objections about the proposed Dunkin Donuts known.

“HPARB, the Planning Board and the Trustees are all volunteers, but they have a very narrow scope,” said Bosley. “They can’t do the things citizens can do. They can’t tell Dunkin Donuts that we want Stagecoach coffee and Schneider’s donuts. They need that support from the community.”

On Thursday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m., they will host a letter writing party at Templeton Hall. “Our goal is 1,621 letters,” said Bosley. “That’s the number of Cooperstown residents who are eligible to vote.”
