OGDENSBURG — Seven new members have been appointed to the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center Task Force.

The appointments, announced Wednesday, include: Chuck C. Thorpe, senior vice president at Clarkson University; Ernest J. LaBaff, president emeritus at Aluminum, Brick and Glass Workers International union; Assemblywoman Addie J. Russell, D-Theresa; John Burke, a retired employee of the psychiatric center; Jonathan Putney, St. Lawrence County Legislature chairman; Joseph Lightfoot, St. Lawrence County legislator; and Sam Burns, St. Lawrence County Legislator.

The members were appointed by Mayor William D. Nelson in an effort to step up pressure on the state Office of Mental Health to keep inpatient services at the Ogdensburg psychiatric hospital.
