He spoke these words to a crowd of more than 100 people during the South Queens Chamber of Commerce’s annual general meeting at the Best Western in Liverpool June 25.
“Although I don’t think there are any silver bullets, I do think that there needs to be a serious discussion on making rash decisions,” said Keddy from the podium. “It is not an entirely doom-gloom situation, and there are still opportunities, and there are still jobs.”
After cautioning the crowd about making quick decisions, Keddy took questions from the crowd.
Audience members asked a number of questions, including some about the mill’s closure; the Yarmouth ferry and Queens County’s revitalization plan among others.
The meeting, slated to end at 7 p.m., wrapped up about 45 minutes later.
