When you confront a bully...
Do you remember when we called out the biggest bully in New York State for playing politics and putting the travelling public at risk?
To jog your memory, Governor Cuomo has a long standing dispute with the Seneca Nation of Indians over gaming revenue. As a result, the Governor refused to address the deplorable road conditions on I-90.
If you thought it couldn’t get much worse, the Governor snubbed the City of Salamanca of much needed funds due to the casino revenue dispute, and a 46-year-old resident DIED because the fire department wasn’t equipped to handle two emergencies at the same time due to lack of funding.
We asked the Department of Justice to investigate the misuse of federal funds, abuse of power and any and all federal crimes, related or unrelated, uncovered in an investigation.
This wasn’t a publicity stunt.
We wanted to see the road fixed for the safety of the travelling public.
Eight weeks later, the road is getting fixed, and the City of Salamanca got the funding they need.
We stood up to a bully and had a positive outcome in the end for YOU – the people that matter the most.
We are just getting started so stay tuned.
Until next time,
