NEW CITY - The candidates vying to become the next Rockland County executive were on the road today talking about curtailing overdevelopment in the area.

At a campaign stop, Republican Ed Day released a 10-point plan outlining how he would crack down on what he calls irresponsible overdevelopment.

He says there needs to be a countywide checks and balances system in place to insure development in one town or village doesn't negatively impact another.

Day’s opponent, Democrat David Fried, calls the plan outrageous. He says Day's proposal could turn the county executive's office into a central investigation bureau that would strip local communities of their power.
