Visited the What a Woman Wants boutique in the Village of Hamburg to drop off hand sanitizer for today's Hamburg Boutique Crawl which features 26 stores. Stop by today until 8pm to support our great local businesses!

After that, visited Yankee BBQ Simple Craft BBQ in Hamburg for lunch. Really great Texas-style BBQ avaliable here in WNY! I highly recommend the brisket 😀

Bait and Switch. What in the world is this!

Ellicott Development's new design does not fit the historic character of the Elmwood Village, and frankly, I'm not even sure where it would fit. This is a disgrace.

I'll be joining the virtual planning board meeting next Monday at 4pm to talk about the community opposition to this terrible project. Please join me.

A month after winning a needed zoning variance for its reduced-scale project on Elmwood Avenue, Ellicott Development has redesigned the building with a narrower and more contemporary look.

The federal government's failure to support state and local governments is leading to crisis here in New York and across the nation.

Our local communities are forced to take drastic action because the Senate and the White House have ignored reality. We need support now!

Some communities saw sharp drops in sales tax, mortgage recording tax and recreation fee revenue because of the pandemic and fear further losses in state aid next year.

FBI says it foiled plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer

Thankful that Governor Whitmer is unharmed, and law enforcement prevented this plot from unfolding. I am reminded of the recent effigy of Governor Cuomo here in Western New York, and the danger of promoting violence against political leaders.

Overcharged rhetoric can often lead to something much worse. No matter where it takes place, this type of extremism and violence is unacceptable and has no place in our society.

A militia group planned to violently depose Michigan’s government and abduct Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), the FBI said in a federal affidavit filed Thursday.

This is unacceptable. The American people need relief now!

What about the unemployed? What about small businesses? What about state and local governments? What about our healthcare system?

The President must stop blocking relief for our country.

He accused Nancy Pelosi of "not negotiating in good faith."

This is a smart approach, and I hope an agreement can be worked out to make it a reality.

The county executive said governor's officials are "seriously considering" permitting a return of fans.

Trump’s Taxes Show Chronic Losses and Years of Income Tax Avoidance

It's stunning to see wealthy elites like President Trump get away with paying less taxes than nurses, firefighters, and teachers.

Donald Trump's $750 tax payment is a symptom of a broken federal tax system. Our leaders in Washington need to fix it.

The Times obtained Donald Trump’s tax information extending over more than two decades, revealing struggling properties, vast write-offs, an audit battle and hundreds of millions in debt coming due.

It should not have been this bad.

Here in New York, we have taken aggressive action and today we continue to have one of the lowest infection rates in the nation.

We need to remain vigilant, and we need the federal government to finally deliver more relief for workers, small businesses, and local governments.

"We're only seeing the tip of the iceberg. We're only nine months into this pandemic," said Dr. Syra Madad, senior director of the systemwide special pathogens program at New York City Health + Hospitals.

Just when you think it can't get any worse

At a time when nurses were using garbage bags for PPE, the Trump Administration steered millions of taxpayer dollars to defense contractors.

The American people will not stand for this type of waste and abuse.

Shortly after Congress passed the Cares Act, the Pentagon began directing pandemic-related money to defense contractors.

A big win for the Tonawanda community. Thanks to the DEC for their quick action to protect the health and safety of local residents.

Thanks to Tonawanda Councilmembers Bill Conrad, Shannon Patch, and Carl Szarek for their great leadership.

In 2018, the Amigone crematorium in Tonawanda promised a new pollution control system would solve ongoing problems.

Last week we saw the system fail with black smoke rising. Joined Tonawanda officials Patch for Tonawanda, Councilman William Conrad, Carl Szarek, and residents to urge the facility be shut down while the DEC investigates. Thank you to Tonawanda officials for your great leadership on this important issue.

19 years later, we remember the lives lost on 9/11, those we have lost due to 9/11 related illness, and the heroes of that day.

Joined ceremonies in Buffalo and Tonawanda this morning. Let us always remember that there is far more that unites us than divides us.

Trump Admits Downplaying the Virus Knowing It Was ‘Deadly Stuff’

Leaders must set an example. Especially the President of the United States. President Trump knew the threat posed by coronavirus, and did nothing. He downplayed the virus, and told us it would soon be over. He stuck his head in the sand and ignored reality.

In February, when it would have made a difference, he didn't warn us about what was coming, even though he had access to the best information available. He didn't prepare our country.

He didn't immediately invoke the Defense Production Act to ensure we had enough PPE for our frontline healthcare workers. He didn't sound the alarms and warn every state to prepare for the worst. He didn't take the steps necessary to prevent the spread of a deadly pandemic, plain and simple.

Now what are we left with? 190,000 dead, with thousands more deaths to come. An economy in recession, millions of jobs lost, families unable to be together, and small businesses struggling or closed forever. It didn't have to be this bad.

The President has failed, and worst of all, he lied to us from the outset. That's not leadership.

In taped interviews with the journalist Bob Woodward, the president said as early as February that the virus was more dangerous than the flu, even as he told the country otherwise.

Why is Sean Ryan sending out a series of non-union mailings from the NYS DSCC? Don't you support legitimate unions?
Take me off of your mailing list. Why have I had to call your office four times in the past two weeks, and inbox you twice requesting this? Stop with the junk mail
I just received a flyer from you with great family pictures. Will you post those pictures here?
Thank you for your suggestion of drop boxes for absentee ballots. I have contacted my Assemblyman to ask him to support this action. It will expedite ballots to the Board of Elections. I'm already seeing a slower rate for mail. A package sent from Michigan by 3 day express delivery took 8 days to reach me in Niagara County.
My mother is in a local assisted-living facility. She, and other residents, were kept in their rooms basically 24/7 for approximately seven weeks with very little social interaction. While they can now leave their rooms, they are still locked inside the building, breathing the same stale, recirculated air for eight weeks. Also eight weeks without any personal contact with family members. Residents that are physically able need to be able to go outside for fresh air. Why not allow them to sit on chairs, spaced six feet apart, on the spacious patio? I understand the need to protect their physical health, but their mental health is being completely ignored. This is elder abuse! I would love an opportunity to talk to you about it.
Happy Earth Day !!! ♻️🌏🌿🌻🌺🥀🌹🌼
Thank you for standing up for those who have no voice
Mr. Ryan, they have started to dismantle rides at fantasy island on grand island. More rides have gone up for sale listed on used rides pages online. I do not believe that Apex Parks Group has been honest with you. There are buyers on the table and Nobody seen any kind of response from Apex Parks Group concerning the sale of the park. Is there a way we could expedite the process and mediate a sale? I know Grand Island councilman Mike Madigan has taken calls from respected people interested.
APEX PARKS CONTACT OFFICE 949-349-8461 GENERAL LINE 949-680-4512 SVP GREGG BORMAN
Thank you for helping reach out to Apex parks to try and get them to stop selling rides out of fantasy island. Apex offices ... 949-680-4512 SVP Gregg Borman 949-349-8461 General Number. File a court ordered injunction to stop them from removing anything from the park. We applaud your efforts as working in the park for 20 years having this ownership come in and throw all those under Marty’s ownership out the door is unfounded we made it successful and you are correct -management ran it in the ground
Once again Sean Ryan sides with Adolf Cuomo- anyone that supports this criminal that harbors criminals at the expense of law abiding citizens is an enemy of our Republic !
