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.

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.

“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.

New Amherst IDA Chairman Was Once Teammate Of Dan Marino

by James Fink Reporter Buffalo Business First

Amherst IDA

Carlton Brock Jr. jokes if his “hands were better,” his professional career might have taken him down a decidedly different path.

Brock was once a running back and defensive back at Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School, where he happened to play with National Football League great Dan Marino. Yes, the Dan Marino who became a hall of fame quarterback via the Miami Dolphins while an arch-rival of the Buffalo Bills.

Carlton Brock Jr. is the new chairman of the Amherst Industrial Development Agency.

But those days are well in the past. Brock, 53, has taken on a new leadership role in Amherst where he’s resided for more than two decades.

Brock was unanimously elected Friday morning as new chairman of the Amherst Industrial Development Agency, replacing longtime chair and board member Rick Vilonen, whose term expired in December.

Brock has been on the IDA board for the past three years.

A vice president with St. Jude Medical Device Co., Brock said his four children serve as his motivation for getting involved with the industrial development agency. Two of his children who are University at Buffalo graduates, found work in the Buffalo Niagara area.

“I want to do my part to create opportunities so that all four of my children have chances for good jobs here,” Brock said. “I’m just trying to do something to make the Buffalo area a better place with more opportunities.”

Brock, an Amherst resident, moved to the area 22 years ago.

While St. Jude Medical is based on St. Paul, Minn., the company’s Buffalo office services much of the Northeast. St. Jude specializes in items like pacemakers and defibrillator.

Brock graduated from California University of Pennsylvania, a college about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh. Ironically, another Amherst IDA director, Marshall Wood, also graduated from the same college — although not at the same time as Brock.

“I’m a Steelers fan, but I’m also a Bills fan,” Brock said.

Besides Brock, other Amherst IDA directors elected Friday morning include: Michelle Marconi, vice chairman; Aaron Stanley, treasurer (re-elected); and Wood, secretary.
