AMHERST TIMES: Editorial: A Billionaire From New York City Learns a Lesson

Al Capone
"We will create zero new investments. We will create zero new jobs." these were the words of New York billionaire John A. Catsimatidis. He owns a piece of property in Amherst at Niagara Falls Blvd and Kenmore, which he hasn't made any improvements to in the last 20 years.

A state court decision allows Amherst to take over the former gas station in Eggerstville.

This business jerk, who has billions of dollars, didn't invest one red cent into this "zombie" property in 20 years. Now he is now spurting out lies left and right about Amherst Town Supervisor Brian Kupla, saying he wouldn't meet with him. Our Amherst Supervisor Brian Kulpa says this is a bare-faced lie.

I guess this billionaire from New York City never ran into a man who is honest and will fight for his Town like Supervisor Kulpa.

Money can buy almost anything unless you find a man or woman whose honesty and integrity can't be bought. This is the wall he ran into when he ran into Brian Kupla.

In the end, this billionaire said he may reconsider investing in this area again. Please remember big John from NEW YORK CITY, Amherst will still fight people like you if you demean our town and try to play games.
