Niagara County Legislator Tony Nemi today said he would seek another term representing the 11th District, which covers the Town of Pendleton and parts of the City and Town of Lockport.  Nemi is the endorsed candidate of the Republican and Conservative committees.

“It has been my distinct honor to serve my community in the Legislature and I believe we have accomplished a great deal, especially with county finances,” said Nemi.  “I’m proud that we have consistently produced budgets that are under the tax cap while maintaining a high level of service.”

Nemi said his focus is on helping our community rebuild after the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We need to do whatever we can to help businesses recover and begin growing again, especially small businesses which are the backbone of our economy and provide the most jobs for our residents” said Nemi.  “The economic growth in Pendleton and the City and Tow of Lockport was definitely on the right track before the pandemic and it’s my job, through our economic development initiatives, to help businesses rebound.”

Nemi said making best use of the federal relief dollars that will flow to Niagara County is key.

“Beyond helping businesses with those funds, we need to invest in our infrastructure because those projects help promote growth and they put people to work,” said Nemi, who pointed to the Tonawanda Creek Road rehabilitation as a great example.  “We must make prudent decisions on how best to spend these funds.”

Last, Nemi said he will continue to fight against industrial solar and wind projects that are opposed by local communities.

“I have repeatedly said that no one is against green energy, but New York State should not ignore the wishes of a community, override local zoning ordinances and essentially force these projects on us,” said Nemi.  “We will fight Albany and New York City politicians to end to preserve the character of our communities.”
