SPCA director leaving, County executive

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that Nathan Winograd, executive director of the Tompkins County SPCA, will be leaving at the end of the summer. Winograd has overseen the adoption of a no-kill policy and the construction of the Dorothy Park Pet Adoption Center, and will be returning to San Francisco.

The Journal's editorial page returns to its winter obsession with the County Executive proposal, encouraging the Government Operations Committee (led by County Legislator Mike Lane) to hurry up and get the proposal on the ballot this year or at least next year. So far as I can tell from local papers and radio, there are ony two groups of people enthusiastic about this proposal: Republicans longing for a chance at control of the county and the Journal's editorial writers.
