Lackawann does not drive business away if it is toxic and is hazardous to your health and they can't get in eneywhere elce. If it does not meet those standers city hall does not wont it
A political ploy and Sorrento got caught in the middle.
I tried to convince the boys back in March that it was the wrong decision because I knew it would be anti-business and halt Sorrento trucks, a huge employer of Lackawanna Citizens.
Poor planning and strong arm tactics to get the State to take over Ridge Road.
Now our pizza is going to cost more and the $100,000 the City spent on lawyers will soon cause lack of some kind of public benefit in Lackawanna.
It did not have to happen, the king and his court played poli-tricks, it back-fired big---and once again, WE, the unsuspecting public are left holding the bag for their incompetence.
We need a Control Board immediately, so something like this NEVER happens again! DiNapoli--HELP!
I tried to make positive changes my 4 years in office, why do you think they ganged up to get me out---everything has to be their idea and they control the public by lack of knowledge! They let out only what they want them to know. Money, it is all about the money. Follow the money and you will find the truth.
You are the one laying blame without seeing things with your own eyes and really investigating the truth.
You say I let it happen?--Whoa, don't lump me in ---I told the news, how could I force them to listen to just me. It heated up when the court case broke. Where were you? People power needs to move the arrogant, pompous politicians out in order for the democratic process to really rule.
You don't even know me, and time will allow the real truths to surface.
Actually Keyboard, Andrea was the only Council Member who voted against this and was unable to raise hell publicly about it because it was in litigation. I know Andrea was the ONLY Council Member who personally went and spoke to Sorrento after the first ordinance was enacted.
I am wondering if this whole mess was started because two of polanski's family members were fired from working at Sorrento. That is what I have heard. Hmmmm, makes one wonder!!

The city of Buffalo should be filing suit against the city of Lackawanna.
What is your suggestion as to what she should have done? Talked about it here while it was in litigation??
I want to hear solutions from politicians---I want politicians to take initiative and solve problems or offer solutions to problems. I don't want to hear them complaining about each other all the time. That's my issue. Didn't say that she doesn't have good ideas or what not, she probably does. But when you constantly complain and point the finger at people it kinda diminishes your position a little bit...
Think about the kid that always got picked on in school----he/she got picked on MORE because they complained. It doesn't matter if they were right or wrong, that's how it went.
