Comment from Canajoharie Mayor on Kaufman interest in Canajoharie property: (Recorder story here)
Mayor Leigh Fuller said he welcomes Kaufman’s interest at a time when the village is facing the uncertainty of not only Hero/Beech-Nut’s move, but also the threatened move of its second-largest employer, Richardson Brands. Richardson has said it is developing plans to move into a factory it owns in Branford, Conn., because of a dispute over state funding to renovate its buildings on Erie Boulevard.
“It’s time something good happened,” Fuller said Tuesday. “As far as I’m concerned, [Kaufman’s interest is] excellent news.”
