Council rejects Dyster library board candidate for second time this year

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — "Diversity is important but sometimes qualifications and enthusiasm and dedication are just as important," she said. "I think this is another appointment of the mayor's that they want to shut down and I think it's personal." 

"I think it should be a diverse board but it shouldn't be a the expense of the people who want to serve," she added.  

Grandinetti said any of the three council majority members have had plenty of opportunities to present qualified, minority candidates to serve on the library board but have not done so. She suggested if they don't like the mayor's opponents, they should present Dyster with some suggestions of their own. 

"If they are so concerned about that board being diverse, why don't they bring (Dyster) some candidates?" she 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.
