Democrat Sue Bahren, who is running against Valentine for Chester supervisor this November, weighed in on the lawsuit. ‘I would like to, in the strongest possible way, condemn the alleged actions described in the lawsuit,’ she said in an email. ‘If proven, these allegations can have extremely damaging and long-lasting effects on the town and its taxpayers. I think that there should be an immediate investigation launched into the alleged activity of these individuals by the Attorney General of the State of New York. I believe that discrimination and intimidation in any form by the town, county or any government entity or individual should not be tolerated.
