AMHERST TIMES: Let’s drain the swamp in Amherst

All WNY News     Monday, January 15, 2018    
AMHERST TIMES



One of the phrases our President has uttered that I actually agree with is that we must drain the swamp of the leeches; people who are owned by power groups and those who are incompetent who are given patronages jobs.

Our local government in Amherst has been hit with this cancer of patronages jobs. Patronage jobs given to crooked, dishonest people is the main reason developers call Amherst their "dream town."

People like Robert Gilmour, chairman of the Planning Board, is a perfect example of being a developers baby. Gilmour already served the allotted time on this important board but last year he was switched from another board back to the Planning Board by his dear friend Fran Spoth, so he could control this important board in support of developers.

My stomach turned every time the people of Amherst were voted down by the Planning Board and the decision went to a developer.

Amherst isn't the only Town who gives out patronage jobs to people who are total losers. The King of Patronages jobs is our Erie County Executive, Mark Poloncarz.  His infamous gift was creating a $102,000 job for his car driver Michael Szukala.  Mr. Szukala was originally given the job title Inspector General of Erie County. The title was changed to Inspector General of Medicaid. This is an important job at the state level not at the local level.

If the powers in Amherst want the engine of our town to start running efficiently, we must release the individuals who hand out useless patronages jobs and those who were the recipients of such patronage.

Gas prices increase with demand

Scott Leffler     Monday, January 15, 2018    
STAFF REPORTS


The price of gasoline in Rochester and Buffalo inched higher in the past week, while national prices are up four cents, driven by higher demand.

AAA of Western and Central New York reports that gasoline in Buffalo is now $2.63 per gallon, while Rochester gas prices average $2.62 per gallon.

Today’s national average price for a gallon of gasoline is $2.53, which is up four cents from one week ago. One year ago, the price was $2.34. The New York State average is $2.67, no change from last week. A year ago, the NYS average was $2.54.

After the national average held steady for the first 10 days of 2018, it began to climb when the Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) petroleum report showed that gasoline demand increased. It rose by 164,000 b/d (barrels per day), hitting 8.8 million b/d. When compared to the first week of 2017, the 2018 level was 344,000 b/d higher. If demand continues to climb, drivers are likely to see pump prices continue to increase.

Despite slightly higher prices, AAA recommends that drivers keep a full tank of gas in their vehicles during cold winter weather. Drivers should also ensure that their windshield washer fluid is full before they hit the road.
