More Tickets, More Money For Buffalo

30,000 citations issued in six months as city counts on cash


With the city now squarely in the traffic-ticket business, Buffalo police issue more citations. Here, veteran Officer Obed Casillas stops a driver on the “S-Curves” section of Delaware Avenue.

Throughout last year, Buffalo police pulled over more drivers and handed more tickets to each.

But the flood began in July – after City Hall created its new “traffic violations agency” to grab more money than ever from traffic fines.

The traffic agency flung open its doors July 1. From that day through December, police issued 30,000 tickets, nearly 10,000 more than the latter half of 2014.

These days, officers don’t hand just one citation to a driver, according to figures from Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda. With new software making it easy, they average three.

The torrent of tickets written from July to December, documented by state data and obtained by The Buffalo News, will eventually rain millions of dollars onto City Hall. But the deluge of tickets was so huge it initially swamped the young traffic agency and left it struggling to collect the windfall.

Comments On The Feb. 8th Town Board Meeting

AmherstTownHall3

The work session will be held at 4:00 pm.

The work session portion of the rules of order was changed on Jan 4, 2016 from “from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm” to “at either 3:00 pm or 4:00 pm”. It seems a work session can now theoretically last longer.

These rules also state the work session is “informal” which is another way of saying the public will not be allowed to speak at it.

The rules state a work session should be used for “routine, non-controversial business items,” however, the town board seems to have a more lenient standard for what is “non-controversial”.

Joe Biden Must Jump In The Race For The Presidency

Joe Biden

The results of Tuesday night’s primary in New Hampshire will hopefully bring in the only person who can become President.  Joe Biden must and will enter the race as a Democratic candidate.

It’s clear by the wide margin Bernie Sanders beat Hillary that the people do not want her and the Republicans have no one to over take Trump in the Republican party.

The only hope for a decent President is Joe Biden.

Jeb Quits Race with “Mission Accomplished” Banner

MIAMI (The Borowitz Report)—Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush announced that he was dropping out of the race for the Republican Presidential nomination, while standing in front of a “Mission Accomplished” banner draped over the façade of his campaign headquarters, in Miami.

Speaking to his remaining staff members who were seated in a dozen folding chairs, Bush thanked them for the hard work that led to the triumphant completion of their mission.

“Our work is done,” Bush said. “Thanks to you, we have prevailed.”

While acknowledging that he took pride in the impressive success of his campaign, Bush stressed that victory did not belong to him alone. “This is a great day for America,” he said.

Upon the conclusion of his remarks, Bush bade farewell to his staffers with a military-style salute before stepping into a waiting helicopter and ascending to the skies.

Minutes after Bush flew away, however, reporters asked senior Bush staffers to define more clearly the mission that Bush had deemed accomplished.

“We feel really good about the work we did, our ground game, getting the word out about Jeb’s accomplishments as a conservative Governor in Florida,” said Bush’s campaign manager, Danny Diaz, who added, “Please, just leave me alone.”

Disturbed Man Tries to Get Into White House

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – A disturbed Canadian man wants to try to get into the White House, according to reports.

The man, who was born in Calgary before drifting to Texas, has been spotted in Washington, D.C. in recent years exhibiting erratic behavior, sources said.

In 2013, he gained entry to the United States Senate and was heard quoting incoherently from a children’s book before he was finally subdued.

More recently, he was heard ranting about a plan to dismantle large components of the federal government, such as the Internal Revenue Service and the nation’s health-care program.

Despite a record of such bizarre episodes and unhinged utterances, observers expressed little concern about his plans to get into the White House, calling them “delusional.”

Fiorina Declares Victory

DES MOINES (The Borowitz Report)—In a jubilant speech on Monday night, Carly Fiorina celebrated what she called her “dominant first-place finish” in the all-important Iowa caucuses.

Speaking to supporters at the Des Moines Marriott, Fiorina taunted the media for counting her out of the race. “No one gave me a chance, and here I am tonight, with ninety per cent of the vote!” she roared.

Growing emotional, Fiorina said that her victory in the Iowa caucuses was the greatest moment in her life since she  “built Hewlett-Packard into the most successful computer company of all time.”

She also thanked the “countless” former Hewlett-Packard employees who stumped for her in Iowa. “The relentless love and support the Hewlett-Packard crew has shown to me just blows me away,” she said.

Fiorina said that she is looking forward to the next contest, in New Hampshire, where she said she has already raised a campaign war chest of three trillion dollars.

Erie Community College Looses Big Money

ECC Logo1

written by James Tricoli, Amhersttimes.com

In the Saturday morning, January 30th edition of The Buffalo News, in the City & Region section, there is a story of corrupt people on the Erie Community College Trustees Board.  There are some people in this group who do little or nothing but sit and wait for a change to rip off public money.

These losers should be removed from the Board. Leaders of this group break rule after rule concerning lax oversight and lack of transparency, which means money flows to the wrong projects but the right politicians and business people.  They are accused of making back room deals the public knows nothing about, and you can bet your last tax dollar it isn’t being used to help students.

This group only regard their personal pocketbooks and there do-nothing job.  Check out the trips and vacations some of these Trustees take.  What dumbass reasons they offer for going on these vacation to areas which in no way can helps ECC.

Nobody is watching the people who are handling the money and their final black mark is their reputation will be tarnished forever.
