Higgins seeks support

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Jerauld Genova, the board's chairperson, said that Higgins' message of a unified effort to fight for resources to improve the waterfront was inspiring.

"We're going to take his motivation and drop all the rhetoric," Genova said. "All the old hatchets are going to be buried. We're going to move forward with this group."

Genova said with Higgins' support he believes elected officials and residents in Niagara Falls can work to get what the city deserves from the power authority.

"We don't want the money that they gave us," Genova said. "We want what's right for us."

Genova said he believes Higgins will be able to help the Falls make progress on its waterfront space as he has in Buffalo.

"At this point right now, with his motivation and everything he said, I believe anything is possible," Genova said.

No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
