Tyner gets dumped on

CLINTON – Dutchess County Legislator Joel Tyner believes it is his social and environmental activism that is the reason why somebody dumped a truckload of construction and demolition debris right on his driveway at 324 Browns Pond Road in the Town of Clinton.

This is the first time in his 15 years of activism, including three terms on the county legislature that something like this has happened to him.

“I would say this to whoever did this that it’s going to take a lot more than this to get me to stop pushing for what’s right,” he said. “It’s really sad, sick and twisted what apparently special interests will stoop to.”

Tyner is chairman of the Environmental Committee of the County Legislature and was named to head a green ribbon panel on solid waste.

He is an outspoken critic of business as usual attitudes of running government.

State Police are looking into the incident.
