Steven Meyer’s fundraiser last evening was a huge success. It had a great mix of people. There were many college students, friends of Steven; there were at least 8 Supreme court candidates.
Steven’s father and his father’s friends were a strong presence. ADC Chairman Jerry Schad was present representing the Amherst Democratic Committee, besides 4 other members of the ADC.
Members of the outlawed group Schad removed from his ADC were there to represent the Amherst Democratic Club, which was the first group to endorse Steven Meyer for the New York Assembly.
The primary race on September 9th is when Steven has his primary race. The voters sometimes overlook some of the newer candidates in a primary race. Please don’t. These are the people who want to represent your neighborhood.
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Across the United States on Wednesday, a heated national debate began on the extremely complex issue of children firing military weapons.
“Every now and then, the nation debates an issue that is so complicated and tricky it defies easy answers,” says pollster Davis Logsdon. “Letting small children fire automatic weapons is such an issue.”
Logsdon says that the thorny controversy is reminiscent of another ongoing national debate, about whether it is a good idea to load a car with dynamite and drive it into a tree.
“Many Americans think it’s a terrible idea, but others believe that with the correct supervision, it’s perfectly fine,” he says. “Who’s to say who’s right?”
Similar, he says, is the national debate about using a flamethrower indoors. “There has been a long and contentious national conversation about this,” he says. “It’s another tough one.”
Much like the long-running national debates about jumping off a roof, licking electrical sockets, and gargling with thumbtacks, the vexing question of whether children should fire military weapons does not appear headed for a swift resolution.
“Like the issue of whether you should sneak up behind a bear and jab it with a hot poker, this won’t be settled any time soon,” he says.
Most of the people of the village are unaware what the present administration is doing to our Village. They are giving developers the ability to build concrete monoliths throughout the Village while we are looking the other way. The “other way” are things like Music on Main St.and other special events for the people who reside in the village. The villagers enjoy the music and other events which makes the summer in the Village very enjoyable.
We were just informed that 26 buildings or sites, will be designated as historical sites. I will not call this a joke but it is an attempt to make the Villagers believe we are saving land era. No way. Its simply another way the Village administration is of trying to fool the public.
We are boxed in by a hotel at South Forest and the other end will be the Hirshfield-Richfield project which will contain a three story building with eight garages behind it for the 20 apartments. Then there will be a row of buildings with parking in the back of the last building. The Planning Board allowed for the developer to provide parking for 99 cars. The main building will abut the sidewalk, like the hotel at Main and South Forest.
The first ten sites were selected by the Historical Designation Board rather than the residents of Williamsville. The more development which is allowed in the Village the more we will become a hamlet of concrete never again a hamlet of peace and quite.
Please send me an e-mail or any other form of contact if you want to join me in trying to stop the flood of development set to happen in our Village.
People around the country are talking about the underdog candidate in the NYS Assembly who refuses to accept contributions from corporations and lobbyists. Will YOU stand up to the special interests who are trying to buy our district and tell them that We Stand With Steve?

We’re asking for a suggested donation of $20 to get in, so please come out and show your support for Steve! Please click here to RSVP and check out more information: http://www.
Those of us who remember the Watergate scandal which brought down President Nixon remember that it started with a messed up minor burglary. Little by little more and more information came out about Nixon ‘s corruption. Then finally, the straw that ‘broke the back’ of Nixon’s administration came in one man, John Dean, a former Nixon employee who opened the doors of how Nixon used his corrupt power.
Today, August 27, 2014, the New York Times decided to deny the endorsement of Governor Cuomo because he had failed to rid the state government of corruption.
“He failed to perform Job 1,” the Times said in an editorial.
“The state government remains as subservient to big money as ever, and Mr. Cuomo resisted and even shut down opportunities to fix it.
The Watergate Scandal began with a fouled up burglary to get information on political enemies of Nixon and ended up bringing down President Nixon’s Administration.
When President JFK was ‘fooling around’ the media ignored it because they liked him. This time the reporters don’t like Governor Cuomo. This is a gigantic difference. Any negative information reporters can dig up they well use to crush Cuomo. If another John Dean appears, Cuomo will be brought down.
I believe it’s too late in the upcoming elections, and this stupid act of stopping the Moreland Commission is Governor Cuomo’s death knell for any hope of the Presidency.

Keep quiet. That’s the message being sent by New York State Board of Elections, which disregarded the First Amendment to enact new “emergency regulations” on political speech that could become permanent at the end of this month.
Intended to regulate spending by independent groups during campaign season, the regulations are so expansive that almost anyone, citizen or organization, hoping to have their say on any issue could find themselves in bureaucratic dire straits.
Is an ad for a charity that supports war veterans advocating for a candidate who is also a war vet? Is an AARP pamphlet opposing higher prescription-drug prices under ObamaCare opposing every candidate who supports New York’s state-run insurance marketplace?
What about billboards for a local gun show that say, “Support the Second Amendment” — are those attack ads against all pro-gun control candidates?
Under the new regulations, these decisions are left entirely to the discretion of the four unelected commissioners on the Board of Elections.
The New York Times declined on Tuesday to endorse Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary next month because he has failed to rid the state government of corruption.
“He failed to perform Job 1,” the Times said in an editorial. “The state government remains as subservient to big money as ever, and Mr. Cuomo resisted and even shut down opportunities to fix it.
“Because he broke his most important promise, we have decided not to make an endorsement for the Democratic primary on Sept. 9.
“Cuomo, 56, who is seeking his second term, is facing Fordham Law School professor Zephyr Teachout, a national expert on political corruption. The winner will most likely square off against Republican Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, whose primary is on the same day.
The Times also would not endorse Teachout because she “has not shown the breadth of interests and experience needed to govern a big and diverse state.”
The Chairman Of The Amherst Democratic Committee – JERRY SCHAD
I’ve received phone calls from individuals in the Amherst Democratic Committee telling me that Jerry Schad, Chairman of this group, has informed his intimate friends he is going to be very selective who will be ‘allowed’ in his Committee. Many of the regular faces will not be there anymore including members from different parties.
He will be deleting those people who ask questions which are contrary to Jerry’s Democratic beliefs, and those people who ask questions about the Committee which only the leadership should be aware of.
Jerry Schad has gotten rid of some of these people already. Those he has left in the Committee are his ‘clique’ who will blindly follow his line of leadership.

The newest battle between a developer and the people has started. The battleground is the Hirshfield~Richfield project. Developers plan to build a three story building which will meet the sidewalk like Mr. Paladino’s hotel at Main and South Forest. The second floor will be businesses and apartments.
As they reach the end of the project they will include parking in the rear of the building on the Richfield side and continued down the street.
This invasion of our neighborhood is the beginning of the destruction of this neighborhood. Under no circumstances should developers be allowed to go down neighborhood streets.
I’m a man who believes in the power of the people. We must not be sweet-talked into allowing this invasion by anyone.
This is our village we must not let it be taken away from us. We will find legal ways to stop these money people from stealing our heritage, our town.
P>S. The Town Planning Board OK 99 parking spots for this project not 83. There will be 20 apartment and 8 garages for these apartments.
