CWM legal fight funds draw a crowd


Niagara Gazette —

Reiter added state officials should also be included in the process, fighting the expansion. But Witryol said both Lewiston’s representatives in Albany have been silent or spoken in favor of CWM in recent years.

Sen. George Maziarz, R-Newfane, she said, has “benefitted from more than $170,000 in ... donations into committees he controls in the past seven years.”

Reiter did express interest in meeting with Abraham, though, a meeting he said he’d need to set up with the county.

“We’ve never met him,” he said. “It would be nice to hear what services he’s going to provide instead of just handing over a check for $50,000 to the county.”

Democrat candidate for supervisor Dennis Brochey, who was unable to attend Monday’s meeting due to commitments to the Lewiston Village Board, where he serves as a trustee, said he’s opposed to any further expansion of CWM.

He said the efforts of the town board in creating the fund to help fight the company’s expansion need to be followed through, adding financing the lawyer is the responsibility of the board whether it received a recent bill or not.

“The town may not have been issued a bill, but at the same time, they know there’s people fighting the expansion,” he said. “The board shouldn’t turn its back on its obligation. The entire town, in my opinion, probably doesn’t want to see CWM there.
