In a shocking development, Niagara County Clerk Wayne Jagow says he will need 4.5 additional bodies at the county's three DMV facilities to process the enhanced drivers licenses that will be available in August. Please. Suck it up and handle the additional workload. If your employees can't handle it, I'm sure there are plenty of people in Niagara County that will take the job, with the additional duties. The public sector needs to know what it feels like to work in the private sector. More duties, more responsibilities, same pay. Deal with it.
Speaking of DMVs, why on earth does Niagara County have three? Geographically the county is quite small. In addition, licenses are processed once every eight years. Really, how often does your average person need to visit a DMV? Every candidate for local office touts "consolidation" in their campaign. Someone sack up, step up and bring a resolution to consolidate the county's DMVs.
Mitchell W. Brokob should rot in hell. But until he does, he's going to find the next best thing, prison. Even convicted murderers, rapists, arsonists, etc have a code for sexual assault of a child. Kudos to all of the police personnel that assisted in the arrest of Brokob, and here's to him getting what he gave 1,000 times over.
Kudos to the Niagara Falls Reporter for their piece on Francine Del Monte. The piece shows just how warped her priorities are and how little she really cares about the people she allegedly represents.
The Western New York job market appears headed in a positive direction. No thanks to Del Monte.
Today is Eliot Spitzer's birthday, should you want to send him a card. Or a stripper-gram. Eliot, meanwhile, is looking at his first big business venture since being disgraced from office, a vulture fund.
Meanwhile, federal prosecutors are closing in on the disgraced governor. Their case is apparently so strong that they had no interest in a plea deal.
Hillary Clinton finds herself millions in debt with few options to pay it down.
WNYer Bob Wilmers appointment to head Empire State Development continues to draw accolades from Upstate business leaders. This can only pay dividends for our region.
