Tonawanda News — I certainly hope the city has their phone bills paid up because if Mr. Dubbs wins he’ll be burning up the telephone wires getting information and advice from all of his friends who do have experience. By his own self admission he doesn’t have any. I don’t think that’s much of a way to run the city. I go to the dentist but that doesn’t make me an oral surgeon.

All the fine sounding projects mentioned in the Pennysaver by mayoral candidate Rick Davis eliminated one that should be top priority. The sewers in the Del-Ton area must be fixed. I’m tired of disinfecting sewer water from our basement. Seven times now, and it costs us a lot of money to live on this corner.

In the Sept. 1 Tonawanda News there was an article about homeowners having to register for the STAR exemption. They said you can do it by phone or online but it doesn’t say where to call or where to go online. Can someone give us that information?

OK, City of Tonawanda, it’s election time. How about we vote out all these politicians who have been in office forever? They’ve never done anything, especially Pilozzi who’s put us in debt for that building down by the river.

I just want to say what a pleasant shopping experience I had at Budwey’s on Division Street. I use an electric cart so I don’t go too fast. At two separate points young men stopped and said hello, and to have a nice day. They were so pleasant. It’s nice to know there are still people out there like that nowadays. And by the way, I don’t work for Budwey’s or have any connection or family there. And by the way, his electric carts are the nicest in town.
