Recently, some friends were dining at the Blackthorn Restaurant in South Buffalo. They happened to witness the chef of the restaurant approach a table and start telling the patrons seated there that they needed to vote for John Makeyenko in the upcoming school board election. Apparently, the chef stated that he needed a job with better health insurance and John had promised him a job in the Lackawanna Schools maintenance department if he won.
After a little investigation, it turns out that "the chef" is Mark Daley, the brother of John Makeyenko's good friend Bob Daley - whose wife Courtney was put on as a teacher's aide last September.
