District Attorney James Farrell was in the audience once again, for the second week in a row. In the past, Monticello Village Board meetings were occasionally attended by former DA Stephen F. Lungen. Mr. Farrell just listened, but PBA president John Riegler spoke emphatically on behalf of organized labor and on his own time. Several members of the community also spoke against the measure.
