This project should have been finished years ago
In my short years I have lived in about half a dozen states across the country. Each of them is unique. New York is memorable for the dizzying array of politicians, appointees, elected officials and assorted hangers-on who seem to involve themselves in every aspect of life. In every state I have lived in, this project would have been completed years ago.
Why do we need congressmen, city councils, county executives, legislators, mayors, studies, panels, commissions, appointees and authorities to micromanage a project that simply involves placing a store on a piece of abandoned land? I have never seen such a spectacle anywhere else.
If this region intends to head further down its current path to an underpopulated dystopia that is a shell of its former glory, then by all means continue with these shenanigans. If not, Buffalo and Erie County may want to figure out what makes other regions successful. I will give you a hint: It’s not multiple Byzantine layers of government and their associated taxes.
Well said, Robert. I wonder if he's related to the chief, Robert Parish?
