For many years, the Town of Tonawanda has been known as a community whose residents receive full value for their tax dollars. Police, fire, sanitation, street cleaning, recreation, youth and other vital services have been consistently top-notch. Much of this has been due to the creative leadership of Town Supervisor Carl Calabrese. How fitting it is, therefore, that he now has been given an opportunity to put his skills to the benefit of every citizen of Erie County. Godspeed to Calabrese -- and thanks.
