Carl Paladino is willing to fix up a run down, falling apart building in a part of town that has seen better days and Occupy Buffalo thinks it's something to protest? They are upset about the tax break he is getting and the fact he is marketing it towards middle to high income residents. Because the last thing this city neighborhood needs is tax paying residents with disposable income who aren't going to commit crimes.
Why don't they just be honest and say they are protesting Paladino because they don't agree with his politics? This project is a great thing for the neighborhood. He's taking an eyesore, fixing it up, and putting it on the city tax rolls. If he walks away from it, which one of these communists are going to refurbish the building? Buffalo already has enough low income housing. It's called 98% of the city. No wonder nobody takes these well intentioned people seriously...
