Sue's problem with West Point?
In a statement that appeared in this article in the Times Herald Record -- does she ever just talk to a reporter instead of having her spokesman fax a statement? -- Sue said the expansion needed to be done "in a way that recognizes the needs of surrounding communities."
Like many prestigious colleges, there's always been a certain amount of town and gown strife between the school and the Town of Highland, where West Point is based. Still, it seems kind of odd that Sue, who claims to be both pro-small business and a patriot, would consider the academy's expansion and the jobs that come with it as a potential negative.
