Re: “For Louise Slaughter's seat: Joe Morelle

Exactly how long are progressives supposed to wait for the Democratic establishment to move on from what they consider 'safe' candidates? "Sure he's enabled criminals and sex offenders and helps oversee one of the most corrupt legislative bodies in the country, but he knows people and can win in November."

If the party establishment gets its way this general election will be closer than anyone ever anticipated. Voters: vote your issues and ideals. The only way to break the cycle.

Re: “Smaller venues have jitters about proposed RBTL theater

There were fully fleshed out proposals with funding accounted for in regards to Parcel 5. Instead they were dumped last minute for this PAC proposal which according to their own administration now "is still in the initial planning phase and at least of some of the ideas such a movie theater or a rooftop green space are just ideas. Fundraisers like Sandy Parker, the former CEO of the Rochester Chamber of Commerce, need a concept to work with, Yudelson said."

Warren wanted a flashy press conference for her campaign to announce something that would get everyone excited. The problem is that it was all flash and no substance, as we have clearly seen. Outside of Golisano's money, there is no funding. This does nothing to help the arts community as a whole, and without any secondary uses, will be empty more often than it's used.

Oh and there is the whole Morgan piece not mentioned here. Kind of an issue when one of the main financial pieces of the project is under federal investigation. No big deal though right? We're fine. Nothing to see here.

Re: “Parcel 5 theater plan reboots

Where are the concerns re: Morgan's legal issues in Buffalo? Or the concerns of how a movie theater would affect The Little, which already serves downtown? Or the concerns that this entire project in the heart of our city is geared towards the suburban middle class and does nothing for city residents? These concerns have been largely ignored by this administration and based on this press conference, will continue to be ignored.
