Voters sound off on negative campaigning in Falls

(Continued)

Mark Hamister, the company's chairman and CEO, was targeted by a mailer distributed by a political action committee called Western New York Progressive Caucus. The mailer characterized the developer as a con man on one side and lauded Fruscione for tabling and asking questions about the development deal on the other side.

Mailers targeting Fruscione accused him of holding up progress on the hotel deal, working to give out patronage jobs to friends and bashed the councilman for selling merchandise depicting former Western New York crime boss Stefano Magaddino.

Mailers targeting Grandinetti accuse her of voting in lock step with Mayor Paul Dyster political agenda and outlining what the councilwoman maintains was an accounting mistake that led to her being overpaid as part of the city's health insurance buy out program calling it a scam. Grandinetti has been repaying the city since the overpayment came to light.

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.
