As it stands now the chances of Mayoral control of the Buffalo Public Schools (BPS) are 1 in 10.
If it were to pass State government, it will never survive in the courts.
The lack of basic understanding of constitutional law by Byron Brown and Darius Pridgen is astounding. What if every time we disagreed with one of their decisions we threw them out of office? Read more ›
The email below is indicative of how many of Hugh Farley’s constituents feel.
I would like to add the following:
You sold out Upstate, Hugh. Time to pay the piper. You’ve been there too long. You forgot about your constituents. You’re too old and now you’ve become an irrelevant nuisance. Resign. -Carl Paladino
To Senator Hugh Farley,
Well Mr. Farley, as I stated in my earlier email, I respected you for your past service and I had asked that you not support Skelos by supporting the ‘nuclear option.’
Well, you supported the convicted Dean Skelos, and further sold out Upstate New York by supporting John Flannagan, Skelos’ choice for leader, over DeFrancisco. I would be ashamed of myself if I were you, for selling-out and flushing your reputation of many years of service down the drain. I am sure many in your District will remember this, especially during a time there is an effort to clean up Albany politics. I feel bad that you chose the wrong route. I now believe we know our representative much better than we had previously thought. What a bad mistake for someone I thought had integrity.

Dave Laska, you and Ed Cox should be ashamed of yourselves at the way the State Party handled Skelos’ resignation and the subsequent appointment of his successor. No one spoke or stood up for the rank and file. Do you call that leadership? The first time we heard from Ed was to congratulate the RINO winner, handpicked by the accused felon. Great leadership for not calling out the RINOs who gave us the SAFE Act, denied the Southern tier the economic opportunity of fracking and who gave us 9 new casinos to suck the last nickel out of the poor in Upstate New York. Cuomo misspent $210 million of taxpayer money to cover his campaign advertising in the name of Start- Up NY and not one legislator or leader has spoken up. Read more ›
Cuomo, Skelos Choice For Senate Leader Caught In Pay To Play Scheme?
Cuomo and Skelos’ Choice
John Flanagan, the Long Island liberal Republican who is being openly forced on the GOP as a replacement for the recently arrested Dean Skelos (R), and who is being supported behind the scenes by Governor Cuomo himself, apparently shares another similarity with the pair – a penchant for developing public policy that is favorable to companies that pay him.
