Niagara Gazette — But when you fight corruption and patronage as much as Zona has in the last two years, you will make some very powerful enemies. And for good reason! Powerful politicians and special interests can’t afford to have their shell game exposed to the extent that Zona has done. Simply put, if these political superpowers are exposed for the malady of patronage positions, consultant jobs, no bid contracts and other incentives they provide their friends, the taxpayers would quickly vote them out of power That is why they cannot allow strong advocates like Legislator Jason Zona to succeed.
In fact, in the infancy of Zona’s re-election campaign, he publicly predicted that his political adversaries would unleash a relentless attack upon him. He insisted that his opponents would create and embellish stories and conspiracies to smear his good name. And once again, Zona was right! Over the last couple weeks, these political operatives unleashed multiple vicious attacks on him.
But these political operatives assume, wrongly, that the voters of Niagara County are easily tricked. They do not give us enough credit. Our residents and voters will not be fooled by their negative political campaigns. Zona has run his re-election based on the issues that plague Niagara County. He will continue to do so. He will not allow his campaign to be overtaken by negative politics. Niagara County needs leadership and reform. Zona has shown that he is capable of leading and seeking reform in Niagara County. With your help, he will continue to do so.
As the campaign season wraps up, please don’t be fooled by the fake issues and the smear campaigns that will be hurled against Zona. Consider this: Who knows the issues that plague Niagara County? Who has the plans to fix these problems? And who has the courage to fight to fix these problems? Legislator Jason Zona can and will fight to fix the problems plague our County! Please join me in voting for him for the Fifth District Niagara County Legislator.Jason J. Cafarella is a Niagara Falls resident.
