Niagara Falls Council Election Seen as Referendum on Dyster
On Election Day, Nov. 5, all of you will go to the polls and stand there in the polling place and make a decision. I think when you make that decision, it might be well if you would ask yourself, are you better off than you were in 2008 when Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster was first elected?
Are your taxes better? Is there less crime?
Do you feel safer in your neighborhood and in the business districts of this city?
Can you go downtown and be entertained better in the tourist district?
Do you feel better about your city?
Has the casino and the more than $100 million of casino money spent here made an impact in your life?
Have you seen where it went?
Are the parks, trees, streets and sidewalks looking better?
If your street was paved, does it look good now?
If you answer "yes" to these questions, then you should vote for Dyster’s council majority: Kristen Grandinetti, Charles Walker and Andrew Touma, who are now dubbed the "New Council Majority" and are, apparently, prepared to support the spending initiatives and the necessary tax increases Dyster and his supporters in Buffalo require to pay for them.
If you give Dyster the rubber stamp majority he craves, we can solemnly promise that Paul Dyster will be the best mayor Buffalo can buy.
If you honestly think you cannot answer "yes" to the above questions, you may want to cast your votes for the non-Dyster-owned candidates, Russ Vesci, Sam Fruscione and Vince Sandonato.
