Tonawanda News — When is Niagara Street in the City of Tonawanda going to be paved? It is just as bad as the streets in the Falls. It’s been in need of paving for years. What’s the problem with the mayor? Why hasn’t he paved that road? All our tourists and visitors come through there. They pave these silly little streets that don’t even need it but a main street like that is left with potholes and patches. It’s horrendous.

I would like to ask the Tonawanda school superintendent or the parties responsible for the excessive volume at the new stadium, why is this necessary? And why do we need rap music when we’re asked not to swear or use abusive language? Am I being bullied by this system?

The Sabres are just like the government bleeders. They’re just showing up for a paycheck. We need people who care about the human race.

•••

Municipalities sell off parcels of land all the time. Why is it such a big deal that they do it with Smoke on the Water?

•••

People need to remember a vote for Rick Davis or Jackie Smilinich is a vote for Gayle Syposs. She’s tried to run this city long enough. Let’s boot her out. Real Democrats, let’s show we can cross party lines and vote for the right people.

I live on Grove Terrace in the City of Tonawanda. I have already filed two complaints with a supervisor at the City of Tonawanda Post Office about my mail not being delivered. Once again this month I’m missing mail. Can someone advise me about the course of action I can take to get my mail? Is anyone else in the Grove Street area having problems with their mail? What can I do, folks?

I really am disappointed in our government, that they would shut the memorials down for their veterans. They gave their lives for this country and you’re treating them like a piece of dirt? How dare you. Wake up, government.

This is for Eric or anybody interested. I’m watching the idiot box and they’re showing one block in New York City where 57 billionaires live. Multi-million dollar houses. Why can’t they pay their fair share of taxes?

•••

I think we should be able to smoke in our state parks. After all, don’t we give tax to the parks? Even if they said they no, I’d do it anyway. What are they going to do, put everybody in jail?

I live in the City of Tonawanda and I want to say our Fourth Ward candidate, Jenna Koch, was at my door last night. I found her to be a tremendously positive and energetic candidate who truly loves our city. I wish her the best of luck.
