Tonawanda News — “He’s banking on everyone else’s successes,” Houghton said. 

Ortt countered that while some of the projects began before his term very few of them actually came to fruition until he and the Republican-led council took the helm, when he contends that projects like the marina, the Remington Lofts, Walmart and a slew of smaller projects began to gain a head of steam after sitting in limbo for years. 

“I think his viewpoints are just political posturing,” Ortt said of Houghton’s comments. “But nothing could be further from the truth. We’ll have that debate when they reveal their candidates.” 

Republicans have not said who will run for Donovan’s seat.
