Thompson job raises eyebrows

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — By the way, this marks the second major appointment — both have sparked questions about credentials — by Brown in the past couple of weeks. In late November, the mayor named Ellen E. Grant, a former chief executive officer of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, to be deputy mayor of Buffalo. She is expected to concentrate on health care and education issues. While she might be somewhat knowledgeable on educational issues. her brief tenure at the Niagara Falls hospital was less than impressive as evidenced by the decision to not renew her contract.

HELPING HANDS DEPT.: Again this year the Auxiliary of the Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center has placed a lighted tree atop the pedestrian bridge linking the 10th Street parking ramp with the hospital. A lobby holiday tree also decorated with ornaments purchased ($5) in memory or honor of loved ones and friends.
