Erie County must deal with its deficit.
On Monday, May 5, 2020, Erie County Comptroller Mychajliw declared a deficit in Erie County's Budget in accordance with Erie County Charter section 2511. Under this provision of the charter this declaration begins a process for amending the budget. The Erie County Executive proposes the changes he deems necessary to address the deficit. Then the Erie County Legislature gets an opportunity to make changes to the County Executive's proposed changes. At the other end of this process changes are made to the budget to address the declared deficit.

FACTORY FOR MURDERERS Alleyway Theatre
Some names in history stick out, people, places and events people recognize and think they know about.

WBEN's Tom Bauerle can dish it, but apparently can't take it.
Tom Bauerle a longtime radio personality on WGR and now WBEN has a history of stirring up the emotions of his listeners for his, and his station's, monetary gain. For example, in 2001 when he worked for WGR as a co-host with Chris "The Bulldog" Parker in a program entitled "Bauerle and the Bull Dog". His stint on this show earned them at least one complaint to the FCC ( PRESS STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER GLORIA TRISTANI ). Tom Bauerle while trying to be WNY's alt-right shock jock tries to foment political hate through skewed commentary.

Rep. Tom Reed should represent the citizens of New York State rather than the Seneca Nation
Rep. Reed can put an end to the issues we are having with the Seneca Nation. First, he can put to bed the perennial fight over the Thruway. He can do this by introducing a bill and urging its passage to gether with all the other members of the House and Senate that represent New York citizens codifying the United States long held position that acts that created the right of the Thruway to cross the Seneca Nation land was proper and barring any claim in any court or other forum.
