Niagara Gazette — Fruscione said that Hill, who is Native American, was a great choice to replace Robert Restaino, whose seat had been vacant since the first of the year when he resigned.
“He made a good decision to put a Native American on there, a very good decision,” Fruscione said. “The Native American population continues to grow in Niagara Falls.”
Dyster said that Hill was on a list of suggested appointees provided by the city council.
“I interviewed Noreen and she seemed like a good choice,” Dyster said.
The mayor will continue to interview possible board members, he said.
“I’m going to nail down these other available appointees and, at the earliest possible convenience, fill the vacancies created by the expansion of the board,” Dyster said.
Petrazzoulo also said she was very pleased with the Dyster’s appointment. And she hopes that he keeps at it.
“We were at a dangerously low number of board members,” Petrazzoulo said. “Hopefully the mayor will appoint some more.”
