To the editor:

I am a concerned citizen of the Hudson Valley and would like to express my thoughts and feelings regarding the building of a new jail in Poughkeepsie. I am appalled that schools are being closed, Big Brothers Big Sisters programs are being eliminated and the Homeless Shelter will be charging $10.00 a night after 60 days at the same time that officials are planning to build a jail in Dutchess County!  Two questions burn in my soul!  First, will this jail eventually be filled with at risk youth who could have benefited from Big Brothers Big Sisters programs, homeless people in need of shelter, as well as students who have dropped out of school due to needs not being met in an overcrowded and under funded school system?  Second, where is the money coming from for this penal institution?
