EDITORIAL: Thanks not deserved for Hamister approval


Niagara Gazette — It was a disappointing and despicable display, one we would encourage voters in Niagara Falls to remember come election time despite Anderson’s sudden interest in “bringing the community together” and “doing what’s right for the good of the whole.”

Those words sound good now. They would have sounded a whole lot better if they were said, with real meaning, back in July when this deal could and should have been done.

We’re more interested in thanking and congratulating the two men we believe played the most instrumental roles in preventing the $25 million investment from being scuttled. 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo made the key telephone call to convince Mark Hamister to stick around a little longer. Hamister was gracious enough, despite the horrific mudslinging and nonsense he had to endure, to hear the governor out and remain committed to the project. 

A much-needed project in downtown Niagara Falls is finally ready to move forward thanks to them both. 

Of them we would ask only one more thing: Do not judge the content of the character of an entire community based on the actions of a select few.
