Council majority turns down Oishei offer to help NACC

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — • Voted 4-0 to approve $2,500 in funding for the local chapter of Men Against Destruction Defending Against Drugs and Social Disorders, or MAD DADS. The group, which originated in Buffalo, works with local youth in an effort to combat crime and violence in the community. Their efforts, which are being supported by the Falls police department, intend to undertake street patrols in city neighborhoods and will participate in this weekend’s gun buy-back program. Fruscione abstained from the vote, citing MAD DADS’ member Ron Cunningham’s involvement in his election campaigns.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
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.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
