Protest

REMEMBERING ATTACK — On Jan. 6, a group of residents gathered on the lawn at the corner of Main Street and Route 9D in Cold Spring to observe the second anniversary of the attack on the Capitol in Washington, D.C. The group aloud read the 14th Amendment of the Constitution, which states that those engaged in insurrection should not be allowed to hold office, followed by the names of current U.S. House members who voted in 2021 against certifying the presidential election results.
