It is time for an end to "memorializing resolutions". What are they, you ask? Well, memorializing resolutions are resolutions issued by a legislative body on issues outside of their jurisdiction or authority in order to express a political position by the majority of the body. Put into simple English, it is usually (not always) an opportunity for politicians to grandstand.
For example, the latest one is a resolution submitted by Legislator Gregorius which purports to "tell" Congress to take action on the issue of gun control. Truth be told, Legislator Gregorius is grandstanding for his similar minded constituents, nothing more. It is the function of the State Legislature or Congress to deal with gun control issues. A resolution telling Congress to do something has no legal support or authority.
The County of Ulster has a lot of problems. The Legislature needs to go about the business of the County, not the business of the State Legislature or Congress. If a County Legislator wants to be heard on gun control, then a write a letter to a State Senator or a Congressman. Do not waste the valuable time of the taxpayers on grandstanding.
