Since Hillary Clinton wants to be the first woman president:
Of the half-dozen speakers on stage Tuesday warming up the crowd before Bill Clinton arrived, one was a woman. That was Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul.
From Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster: By supporting Hillary Clinton, he said, he's doing what his mother and grandmothers would have wanted him to do. "Fifty percent of the time," Dyster said, "the best man for the job is woman."
One woman at the rally said she brought her young son because: "Everyone should see a president at least once in their life."
A 27-year-old UB law school student at the rally said that when she was a little girl, people laughed when she said she wanted to grow up to be president. She wants a Hillary Clinton victory to prove them wrong.
Rally attendee Andrew Landis described himself as a politician's husband. His wife, Athanasia Landis, is the first female mayor of Fredonia. Both Andrew and Athanasia Landis are also medical doctors.
On the road
The state DOT says it's checking out the traffic conditions on Route 33 at the eastbound exit onto Grider Street.
That comes in response to a resolution introduced in late February by Masten Councilman Ulysees Wingo, who said there are too many accidents occurring on the roadway - 77 from January 2014 to February 2016.
Wingo had suggested the DOT needs to slow down the traffic. A DOT engineer wrote back that that a traffic engineering study is being conducted, and that the DOT will let the Council know what the determination is when the study is completed.
