"In no way am I thankful to politicians relaxing COVID closures.
Governor Cuomo and Mark Poloncarz pushed and punished long suffering businesses enough. Gyms, salons, bars, and restaurants fought back. It is sad that in the freest country in the world, businesses had to sue their own government to open and make a living.
Being grateful to politicians relaxing COVID restrictions is like having someone stepping on your neck. Blocking you from breathing. Then giving them credit for saving your life when they take their foot off your throat.
New York State and Erie County must open fully. Now. Stop these bogus closures and restrictions not even based in facts or data. Businesses have suffered enough."
