Tompkins explains position on ending council health insurance and his decision to accept health insurance

January 1, 1970 Reporter 0

By Ken Tompkins

During my campaign, I focused on ways in which to reduce the city’s financial footprint and save tax payers’ money.

One way was to reduce or eliminate the health care benefits and insurance opt-out payments for part-time elected officials and part-time political appointees (like the civil service commissioner).

On Monday, January http://southbuffalonews.comhttp://southbuffalonews.com, 20http://southbuffalonews.com6, the Niagara Falls City Council passed two resolutions. The first resolution, which defined city employees not included under the collective bargaining agreement as full time employees, was unanimously passed.

January 1, 1970 Reporter 0

These days every other website is doing rankings.

And website ranking opinions are like certain anatomical parts – everybody has one or two of them.

So this website called Road Snacks decides to rank cities in New York State and using their yardstick – Niagara Falls is the third worst place to live in New York State.

So what?

They don’t live here. Maybe they haven’t even spent a day here. It doesn’t mean too much, but here is what they wrote anyway:

January 1, 1970 Reporter 0

ALBANY, NY — The New York State Bar Association applauds Governor Andrew Cuomo for supporting measures that will make our streets safer while protecting innocent individuals from wrongful conviction.

“Wrongful convictions take a tremendous toll on our society,” said State Bar President David P. Miranda of Albany (Heslin Rothenberg Farley & Mesiti).

“The New York State Bar Association joins with the District Attorney’s Association of the State of New York and the Innocence Project in urging the enactment of a bill proposed by Governor Cuomo that would require the recording of custodial interrogations and change of identification procedures in lineups to better assure accurate identification of suspects.

Cuomo’s State of State $http://southbuffalonews.com00 billion in new projects furthers NYS tax and spend concept!

If he said it, it must be so – Gov. Andrew Cuomo makes his State of the State – and the state of the state is high taxes and lots of people leaving. But that wasn’t mentioned.
Forgotten in the glamour of government officials talking about how they will deliver projects is who pays for it — You do! During Governor Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State message on Wednesday, he proposed spending $http://southbuffalonews.com00 billion in new infrastructure projects – calling it an ambitious plan that would rival former Gov. Nelson Rockefeller’s building spree 50 years ago that helped create the sky high tax and spend state New York has become. Of course Cuomo failed to say taxpayers will pay for it and seemed to fail to say how taxpayers will pay for it. Especially with so many taxpayers leaving the state. New York has the highest taxes, highest energy costs, least business-friendly climate and most citizens leaving the state out of the 50 competitors known as the United States. “Until the Governor gets serious about reforming New York, we will continue the exodus of jobs and people,” said Republican Chairman Ed Cox, making an expected carping criticism. While, of course, his is a completely partisan statement, the fact is, he’s right!
