The perceived value of keeping the Buffalo Bills here through the introduction of a "sin tax" is justifiable. Certainly much creative energy was spent to make this venue a top priority "to save our city" and "save our county."
The perceived trickle-down impact that our beloved Bills have on the community cannot be risked, as the business of the Bills has a direct impact on the quality of life for our residents.
The money will come from those who volunteer to engage in these activities, and it will produce millions of dollars per year.
It is painless -- just pennies per participant. Perhaps our leaders should give some thought to adding a cent to the proposal to produce revenue that could be used to fund libraries and youth sports programs.
Regardless of which camp one may be in, most agree that the emotional stability of our community is best served by retaining the Bills. It then becomes easier to market our area to businesses and attract outside investment, which is important to the survival of our area.
