Putnam mom petitions county on SAFE Act opposition – The dialogue about gun reform that a Philipstown mother-of-two and 500 others wanted to have with their representatives in Putnam County government following the shooting deaths of 26 first-graders and teachers at a Connecticut school will take place instead in May. Alexandra Dubroff, 38, of Nelsonville, the organizer of a 500-name petition, has been appealing to Putnam County lawmakers to open the dialogue since February, when the county Legislature voted to oppose New York’s new gun reform law. The vote took place without public debate.
