Sweet of Brooke to be Dyster’s Campaign Photographer

JULY 7, 2015

Brooke D'Angelo hired to enforce the mayor's  nasty trash collection program, is doubling as the mayor's photographer. Here she is photographing the mayor at the anti-bullying rally.

Dyster appears with two other candidates running for office, County Legislator Owen Steed and County Clerk Candidate  Jamie Moxham.

Last Friday (July3) afternoon, Mayor Paul Dyster briefly attended an anti- bullying fund raiser at the Walmart store on Military Road held by the Niagara Christian Basketball Program.

From the photographs, it appeared that only a handful of people attended, most of them running for election.

As worthy as the aspirations of the Basketball Program is, Dyster’s aspirations were every bit as worthy.

He utilized it as a photo-op, and, remarkably, with him was Brooke D’Angelo, one of Dyster’s recent city hires, who has had considerable experience as a photographer, and radio voice talent for political campaigns.

She was there to take pictures of Dyster and is now presumably his campaign photographer.

Her pictures soon appeared on Facebook supporting the mayor.

Dyster, of course, got what he came for – mention in the Niagara Gazette – and a photograph in the newspaper – with him wearing an anti – bullying tee shirt - as an attendee for the event, and a great supporter of the cause.

He left shortly after the media left.

While D’Angelo was exempted from taking a civil service test for her position as head of the enforcement team for Dyster’s new and disastrous trash plan, a job that consists of her collecting complaints from day till night from the people of Niagara Falls, she is now showing Niagara Falls voters why she was hired.

She's a great photgrapher.

While the city of Niagara Falls has not had an engineer in more than two years, and City Planner Tom DeSantis is currently acting economic development director, Dyster hired D’Angelo and a raft of other new employees just before he imposed a spending and hiring freeze.

Ironically, all of the new hires have previous experience working on campaigns.

But then again this is what Dyster needed going into the 2015 election, a salaried staff of campaign veterans.

The only problem is that city taxpayers will be bearing the expense.

In addition to the multi-talented D’Angelo, Dyster hired political strategist Nick Melson for his new secretary after moving his old one, Bridgette Myles over to the council as their new secretary.

Then he moved Ryan Undercoffer, the old council secretary over to Community Development.

Undercoffer was vice chair of the city's Democratic Committee and vice chair for county Democrats.

He also hired seasoned campaigner and political strategist Johnny Destino, for a purchasing agent job that had been vacant for years.

And then there is D’Angelo taking pictures and more.

As we have said in the past few weeks, the mayor has spared the taxpayer no expense in assembling a first rate political team.
