GUEST VIEW: Economic development and the Hamister project

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — The only restrictions Fruscione had for Hamister’s project was that he wanted to see 100 percent local hiring and prevailing wages for construction workers. Fruscione even cited the more than 200 construction jobs and the 130 permanent jobs that could be associated with this project.

In a recent YNN Poll, 83 percent of the residents of Niagara Falls were in favor of the Hamister Project. Now the council majority needs to make the appropriate decision and move this project forward. Our residents deserve to be heard. This project will instill a positive climate within the city and send a clear a message to other developers that Niagara Falls is open for business and eager to work with them to revitalize our community.

Andrew Touma is a candidate for the Niagara Falls City Council.
