Kevin Hardwick for Erie County Comptroller!

Kevin Hardwick for Erie County Comptroller!

I was proud to spend some time this morning supporting United Steelworkers Local 2058 in their fight for a fair contract with Unifrax.

We know that a strong working class makes Erie County’s economy better. Active labor unions make that possible.

The GOP’s 2022 Strategy: Voter Suppression or Bust

“At the beating heart of the Big Lie—the deranged fantasy that the 2020 election was stolen from its loser, Donald Trump—is the Republican belief that the votes of Black people shouldn’t count.”

After failing to suppress enough Black votes to steal the 2020 election, Republicans are preparing for a heist the next time around.

Analysis: Monica Wallace threads a political needle

Monica Wallace for Assembly - NY 143rd told the truth while her opponent pushed falsehood after falsehood.

That’s the integrity that makes her one of our strongest emerging leaders in Albany and WNY.

Wallace has so far proven a survivor – walking the fine line between conservative constituents and the NYC liberals running her chamber, Robert J. McCarthy says.

“...after McCarthy told Trump it was his supporters storming the Capitol, Trump responded: ‘Well, Kevin, I guess these p...

House Minority Leader McCarthy defends Trump’s response to Jan. 6 insurrection

“...after McCarthy told Trump it was his supporters storming the Capitol, Trump responded: ‘Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are.’”

The statement contradicted McCarthy’s initial response to Trump’s role in the attack, as well as a fellow GOP lawmaker's recollection of what unfolded Jan. 6.

The article in today’s Buffalo News regarding the ECDC’s Sheriff’s endorsement process is offensive and filled with blatant falsehoods.
Anyone who participated in the multiple, hours-long interview sessions knows that all prospective candidates were given an equal chance to make their case.
It was the most open and inclusive vetting we have ever conducted, and we can be proud of it.
Kim Beaty made the decision to withdraw her candidacy before the committee concluded its deliberations and before we received the results from an expensive poll conducted just prior to her departure. And the simple fact is that while Brian Gould is leading the way on transparency in this Sheriffs race, Kim Beaty has not been forthcoming. She never disclosed a harassment suit against her that ultimately cost taxpayers $10,000, a fact that was uncovered by a reporter. She also made a firm commitment to our Party that she would not run in a Primary. Lack of honesty and transparency is at the root of the embarrassments and tragedies our community has suffered under our current Sheriff; we don’t need more of the same.
ECDC has fielded and elected some of the most diverse slates in its history in recent years, and we are a party open to new ideas and new voices from across this community. Any suggestion otherwise is simply wrong. The desperate attacks in today’s article stem from the same disaffected group that has consistently tried to undermine the unity and momentum we have achieved together, and they are a distraction from what should be the real goal: electing a Sheriff every resident and taxpayer of Erie County can be proud of. Brian Gould will be that Sheriff. Let’s focus on winning this primary, and then move on to victory in November! Chairman Jeremy Zellner

Half of Americans over 18 have received at least 1 vaccine shot: CDC

Another important milestone in the battle against Covid-19, and a reminder of the importance of real presidential leadership in times of crisis.

Over half of Americans over 18 have received at least one shot of a coronavirus vaccine, according to the latest data from the CDC.

Letter: County comptroller isn’t fooling anyone

“Just like his hero, the former president, he is using populist rhetoric to funnel more of the taxpayers money to the well-off.

“Nice try, Stefan.”

They say that empty barrels make the most noise and one needs look no further than the County Comptroller’s Office to find a prime example.

Gould 4 Sheriff!

No law enforcement agency can do its job under a cloud of suspicion and mistrust.

There’s nothing wrong with our Sheriff’s Department that can’t be fixed by a strong commitment to integrity and accountability. That’s my promise to you.

This community deserves better, and we can do better.

Slain Capitol Police officer William ‘Billy’ Evans honored at Capitol

“It was the second time in less than three months that mourners gathered in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda to honor a fallen police officer.

“Evans, like Brian D. Sicknick before him, was protecting members of Congress and others on Capitol Hill from a violent incursion and died in the line of duty.”

Evans, 41, was killed April 2 when a man crashed his car into two officers outside the Capitol.

I've been trying to get some information on applying for positions with the board of elections. I am currently a poll inspector and would like to take on more responsibilities and apply for other positions. I haven't been able to get a straight answer from any of the employees in those roles. I keep hearing that it's mandatory to volunteer with your organization to be allowed to apply for those positions. Is this true? Can you shed some light on this situation? I want to further my career with the board of elections

I'm getting questions about emergency absentee ballots from individuals who found themselves hospitalized, but want to vote. How should I direct them?
My friend Cindy wrote this editorial.It deserves to be read far beyond our little corner of Upstate NY. #JoeBiden reached out and came to visit #NY27 in 2018, long before he was a candidate for President. He understood and cared, and still does. #WeKnowJoe and that's why #Nate and the rest of us have Joe's back. Excited to be #earlyvoting today!💙🌊🗽🇺🇸👍 🇺🇸 Vote Joe Biden For President 2020! 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 Vote Nate McMurray for Congress 🇺🇸 Lockport Union-Sun & Journal MAILBAG: McMurray, Biden are best choices for workers in WNY Oct 23, 2020 The last line of defense against the incredible power of corporate America are trade-unions that fight for the working class. Union endorsement, a “seal of approval,” conveys a lot about values and intentions of political candidates regarding the issues that most affect working people like: social security, Medicare, good/fair wages. Joe Biden and Nate McMurray are strong voices for labor and will defend workers, fight for healthcare for all and to mitigate the disastrous effects of climate change. Trump and career politicians like Nate’s opponent Chris Jacobs have shown they aim to do the opposite. Trump’s tax cut and regulation changes heavily favor corporations, not workers. Jacobs, a multimillionaire, a big business guy, out of touch with the middle class, has aligned himself 100% with Trump and against working families. Here are examples of Jacobs votes that do not serve the interests of regular people like us. He voted against the USPS; against reinstating extended unemployment benefits and state and local funding to keep local taxes down; against pay raises for enlisted military; against parental legal power in cases of racial discrimination in schools; against expansion of energy grants to rural electricity cooperatives; and against against saving tax dollars by funding National Parks with fees from mining companies! Nate McMurray’s long list of union endorsements are listed on his website. They include: AFSCME NY Council 66, American Federation of Government Employees, American Federation of Teachers, American Postal Workers Union, Buffalo AFL-CIO, Buffalo Building and Construction Trades Council, Buffalo Teachers Federation, Communications Workers of America, IUPAT District Council 4, International Association of Machinists, National Association of Letter Carriers, Niagara County Building and Construction Trades Council, NYS AFL-CIO, NYS Nurses Association, New York State United Teachers, United Food and Commercial Workers, Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, SEIU 1199, United Auto Workers and WNY AFL-CIO. Jacobs works for himself and his political career, not the constituents of NY-27. McMurray will do neither and has proven that in his position as town supervisor of Grand Island, where his first act was to impose term limits on his own political office. People are onto the self-described Trump sycophant Jacobs, who has only two union endorsements: National Federation of Independent Business and New York State Troopers PBA. McMurray is the endorsed candidate of Labor for good reason. Like Biden, he comes from humble working-class beginnings, he understands our needs. Both have strong plans for job growth, so desperately needed in ours, the worst job market in the US. Jacobs was a New York state senator for years. Ask yourself why he hasn’t improved our job market in NY-27 in all that time. McMurray will defend us and bring jobs to the region in this continued struggle. Vote for Nate McMurray and Joe Biden for working families who always comprise the backbone of a vibrant economy — one we so desperately need to build in Western New York. CINDY FLEISCHER, Mendon
How do I get a Biden Harris yard sign? I left a message at HQ a couple days ago and no one called me back.
