EDITORIAL: Bills group part of a winning game plan

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Tough choices will no doubt have to be made on a number of matters surrounding the team, not the least of which being what to do with the rapidly aging Ralph Wilson Stadium and whether it would be wise to invest likely tens of millions of public dollars in a new facility for the organization. 

In the past, local leaders, including some members of our own county’s legislature, have made half-hearted attempts to endorse the idea of keeping the Bills here in a post-Wilson area. Their resolutions, often approved without consultation from either the stadium lease holders in Erie County or the football franchise itself, amounted to little more than political grandstanding. 

Cuomo’s new stadium working group raises the bar when it comes to dialogue surrounding the team’s future. It also represents a welcome opportunity to carefully and thoughtfully develop viable options for maintaining the franchise’s presence in the community. 

We hope the process will result in a big win for all parties involved.
