Lew-Port takes a hit in Cuomo's budget


Niagara Gazette — "Look at our rankings," he said. "We've been doing everything possible to scrape by, to find any penny possible. But the well is dry, we can't do anymore. I'm nervous. Programs are being looked into. With that type of deficit, we're not going to be able to survive. We have made it work and Chris has done a tremendous job, but it's not going to continue.

"We thought this year would be the better year, but it's not. It just seems to get worse and worse. We're doing the same dance here again. But we're prepared, playing the same waiting game and the same shell game Gov. Cuomo likes to play. We've done everything we're supposed to, our scores are high, our (Annual Professional Performance Reviews) are done, and now he's playing even more games."

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

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.
