A rift between the Lincoln Town Board and a candidate for office is already brewing just over two weeks from election day. Jordan Nowak is running against incumbent Nick Cochart for the Supervisor 1 post on the board. Nowak sent a survey to town residents asking about their knowledge about money being spent on its hall project, its pilot water study and pending lawsuit with Stonehouse Water Technologies, and the lack of transparency when it comes to its budget and financial reports. Town chairperson Cory Cochart, who is also Nick’s cousin, says the survey is misleading.
Nowak defends the survey, saying he will release the results he receives from the over 300 postcards he sent out next Wednesday and will make additional comments on the matter at that time.
