Western New York is blessed to have a visionary like Sen. Antoine Thompson representing us. It took us a little while to dig this video up from the archives, but you, Dear Readers, are worth it:
Yes, you saw correctly: Antoine Thompson and Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster last year, extolling the virtue of giving half a million taxpayer dollars to former drug dealers who have “turned their lives around," and are now “running programs to fight crime.”
So, what dividends is the Thompson-Dyster effort paying here in WNY, a year later?
Heckuva job, Antoine.
