“Today, former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver’s retrial begins while my Conference’s ethics reform package, the Public Officers Accountability Act (A.05864), remains stagnant in committee.


This year, I’ve been very displeased by the lack of effort to stop government corruption and the failure to include these measures in the state budget.


My colleagues on the other side of the aisle must understand the need to clean up Albany, yet they do little to enact real change.


I hope the start of Silver’s retrial will ignite a much stronger effort from the Legislature to review the legislation introduced by the Assembly Minority and pass this much-needed package.”














Niagara Falls City Council member Chris Voccio has scheduled his next Coffee with Chris for April 25.
Coffee with Chris sessions are tentatively scheduled for the third Thursday of each month. The next Coffee with Chris is scheduled for Thursday, April 25th at 8am, at Sunshine Cafe at 8649 Buffalo Avenue in Niagara Falls. Voccio said it will be a casual session and he will cover the coffee but people can order other food and drinks at their own expense. No reservations are needed. Future sessions will be held at locations throughout the city.
“We’ve had good crowds and good conversations” Voccio said, referring to his previous coffee sessions. “There’s no shortage of things to discuss when it comes to the future of Niagara Falls.”
Voccio, a Republican, is in his first term as a City Council member.
