September 2015 Column - Good Government

Like many of my constituents, I was a big fan of the New York Yankees growing up.  I was an even bigger fan of the New York Mets.  I have fond memories of sitting up with my father watching the Amazing 1969 Mets make their playoff run.  With apologies to my friends who root for the Red Sox, I also loved the 1986 World Series.  The Mets team that beat the Sox that year had one of my all-time favorite slogans.  Those Mets were all about “baseball like it oughta be!”

August 2015 Column - Competition from FIOS Expansion Would Benefit All

On August 5th I testified at a public hearing in Buffalo conducted by the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) regarding the state of telecommunications in our region.  I focused on the lack of competition for high speed broadband internet service for much of Western New York.  Buffalo residents, for instance, do not have access to Verizon’s FIOS service and must rely almost exclusively on Time Warner Cable for such service.  In my legislative district, FIOS is available in the Town of Tonawanda, but not in the City of Tonawanda or Grand Island.
