Update: Today the Mayor is up for appointment as the new NYS Commissioner of Corrections. Frankly, I’m sorry to see him go, but don’t blame him one bit. Good Luck Mayor Stewart!
Is this cool or what? Mayor Dan Stewart on one of his many ‘trips’, managed to get the City of Plattsburgh written in to Law and Order: SVU. I don’t care what the local Economic and Community Development Office is doing, or the Chamber for that matter. Both have failed in promoting and developing Plattsburgh’s many tourism opportunities. By getting Plattsburgh into the season premiere of this most popular show, Mayor Stewart may have inadvertently trumped any previous effort at getting Plattsburgh on the map and generating brand recognition.
I mean, who really is that impressed that we made the top whatever in “Site Selection Magazine”. Boring, I’d say. The Mayor has done a lot for the city since he’s been in office, but recent budgetary issues have certainly put a negative flavor to his departure. Getting what seems to be free product placement, has uncalculable value. Now my only fear is exactly what the storyline will be.
