Yesterday the children of our City won a battle in their reach for a real opportunity for an education. The people of the Park District sent out a clear message to the rest of the City that amateur hour is over and failed leadership must be replaced with competent, informed and experienced leadership, not from out of town but from within our hometown.
We don’t have to go beyond the County line to find good leadership familiar with our turf, our people and our problems who are ready to hit the ground running. Much of the wasted collaboration, rhetoric, laid back attitude with no sense of urgency will be obviated with competent leadership. Read more ›

Dawn, your editorial Sunday was pathetic. It illustrates exactly why the editorial comment of the News is meaningless in our community and why, on the watch of your editorial board, editors and publisher, our community has failed so badly.
You and Stan Lipsey need to deal with your God complexes. Power intoxicates and must be used judiciously. You made the issue personal and played the race card to patronize your ego and the uninformed, who don’t even read the News. Your desire to contribute to the “cause” overshadows your objectivity, a baseline requirement for a journalist. Read more ›
Hey Stan, it’s your turn to leave now. Your newspaper is a disgrace to the people of Western New York.

Andy says his accomplishments were behind the scenes. You must admit that like you, he has an enormous ego to go along with his condescending arrogance. The similarities are amazing. For Andy it’s been 20 years on the job and he has absolutely no legacy. The only difference with you is that it’s been over 30 years. Andy’s sole purpose has been to keep his thumb on elected officials and various board appointees so he can feed information to the group of 18 pompous blowhards who keep a lid on the community so they can enjoy the status quo which suits their pocketbooks just fine. You have used your newspaper to accomplish the same end.
The many good former employees who left the Partnership over the years say they left solely because of Andy’s tyrannical ways. They have nothing good to say about the man. Those who left the News say the same thing about how you interfere and editorialize. Read more ›

Below are some of the responses from Carl’s Letter to the New York State Press re: Sheldon Silver (See Carl’s letter at bottom of page)
You’re my hero…I’ve never seen anyone in my life with such relentless passion and…you fight for the little guy over issues they’re unable to fight for themselves. I don’t know how you do it…but I saw it from the first time we all met. Read more ›
On Saturday, 10/20/12, Carl Paladino was on WBEN’s “Kathy from Williamsville” show.
Today I urge you to vote for my dear friend Bill Nojay on Thursday September 13th in the Republican Primary.
The parade of liberal Democrats in the State Legislature under indictment, investigation or in prison continues to grow. Now we find out that Sheldon Silver, their leader in the Assembly, paid $103,000 of taxpayer dollars as hush money to keep a sex scandal by another Assembly Democrat, Vito Lopez, a secret. This is outrageous. Both of these men should be in jail. Read more ›
