Tonawanda News — I’m reading in the paper about Larry Soos getting fired and he referred to Nick Forster as a bully. I find that highly ironic. When Larry Soos was the mayor he was nothing but a bully. You reap what you sow, Larry.


A taxpayer voting for Obama is like a chicken voting for Col. Sanders.


For the person who wrote in about politicians telling us to lose weight, you just keep voting for Obama and they’ll be telling us what to do every single minute of the day. We’ll be a socialist republic.


I went to the Tonawanda council meeting Oct. 2 and got a copy of the budget. This is back in the 60s, we had 20,000 people. Now we have 13,000 people and a full-time mayor, full-time assistant, secretaries. In the 60s we had a part-time mayor and part-time employees and all the work got done. They said they may have to lay people off and we won’t get the services we’re used to. They won’t lay anyone off. 


They want to waive the resident to get a job in North Tonawanda? I’ve been a resident of this city for 40 years and my son would love a job over there but we can’t get one because we don’t know anybody. It’s nepotism.


If they eliminate the earned-income credit and provide the people who get this money with part-time jobs, then they could earn the money like we all have done. At the same time it will increase the tax base and lower the deficit.
