“Maybe if those guys coming down from Canada had driven down Route 202 and seen all those American flags, maybe they wouldn’t have dropped the World Trade Center towers.”

— Troy Selectman Richard Montana, speaking during town meeting Saturday, March 26, referring to the 9/11 hijackers. Montana was arguing in favor of a proposal to spend town money to match a private donation to purchase 30 American flags, which would then be displayed along the main thoroughfare through Troy.

“If the federal government stopped spending $600,000 a pop on Tomahawk missiles and gave that money to the towns, we could get some things done.”

— Montana, speaking during the same meeting, offering a potential solution on the subject of how to fund future town road budgets.
