Obligatory Election Day Post

Hi everyone.

We have had three elections this year:
School Board
Primary
General
And each time I asked you guys for a few votes. So, here are the two I am asking you guys to cast.

1) Captain John Glascott for Sheriff. John, undoubtedly, has the experience necessary to run Erie County. He has run prisons, and even began his career as a corrections officer. The incumbent, Sheriff Tim Howard, is incompetent. He is under several different investigations by state and federal agencies. There have been several escapes from prison in the last month alone. Remember, because Tim Howard can not run a prison, Bucky Philips escaped while unsupervised and killed an officer. Tim Howard refused to let a woman with unpaid parking tickets in the holding center get her cancer medication.

2) Mark Polancarz for Comptroller. Mark has done a brilliant job over the last few years as our Comptroller. While the County Executive is trying to bypass county charter to cut human services, Mark is keeping him accountable. His opponent argues that Mark can't count. That Mark predicted a $10 Million budget shortfall and we ended up with a $10 Million surplus. What a crock. Mark examined the budget, told everyone there would be a shortfall, and the budget was adjusted. That is doing your job and doing it well. The opponent is being funded by Chris Collins to be a rubber stamp. We need Mark to keep him accountable.

If any of you live where there is a County Leg race, don't vote for Michele Iannello. So there, you can't say I never supported a Republican.

Cement

Sometimes this job requires strange tasks.

Right now, I am reading a 100 page report on the cement industry, and steps to make it more green. It is a facinaiting read that totally does not make me want to pound my head against the wall 'till both explode.

That said, I think we have enough votes for the domestic partner resolution. That makes me feel like it is all worth while.

cement.

Boo

There once was a pumpkin
With a curl in his hair
And when he was good
He was very, very good
But when he was bad he was horrid

Domestic Partnership

Hey Everyone,

At 5:30 in council chambers on the 13th floor of City Hall, there will be a public hearing on Domestic Partnership legislation. It is completely open to the public, so if you want to say something in support of having a registry (sorry, only for two person families... grrr) stop by.

kisses,

-James

Health Care

I posted a brief bit of this on Twitter/Facebook. But I will post it here as well.

I just got a letter from the parent of a four year old boy. A massive brain tumor caused by a rare form of cancer was discovered that impaired the child's sight and mobility. He had brain surgery and is now undergoing cancer treatment. Of course, the parents have auctioned off their entire lives to help their son and now have nothing.

Why do we have fundraisers for families like this? Why do we have fund raisers for the families of firefighters who die while on duty? We do we have memorial fund raisers dedicated to children who could not afford to fight their cancer?

It's enough to make me want to become a Communist.

Domestic Partnerships

Howdy,

On Tuesday Councilmen LoCurto and Rivera will be introducing a Domestic Partnership resolution. It will create a registry and extend benefits to city employees. The following week, on either Tuesday or Thursday there will be a public hearing in council chambers.
If you are interested in this or want to say something, come on by. It will be awesome.

kisses,

-James
