City Hallways (July 15) Rich's Rules of the Road

Dad's Rules

During the recent Council discussion on speeding motorists,  Lovejoy Councilman Rich Fontana shared some speed limit advise he said he gave his own son when helping the teenager learn to drive.computeIMG_3092

"Even if the sign says 30,  better  to go slow if  you can't  see the  curb," Fontana said.
"Otherwise, if you're going 30, there's no way to  stop  if a child  darts  out."


July day I've been waiting for

As a self-acknowledged semi-numbers nerd, today's a big day.

It's when the  July financial  disclosure reports are due with the state Board of Elections.

Most politicians won't file til the end of the day, so their  reports won't be available until next  week, but some have filed already.

Among them, outgoing state Sen. Marc Panepinto. I learned from his reports that the Buffalo lawyer's campaign in March repaid $50,000 in loans from 2014 and 2015 - to himself.

He also refunded $25,500 in contributions received from five different  unions.

Fruit Belt  parking  update

Buffalo News Albany Bureau Chief Tom Precious tells me the Fruit Belt residential permit parking bill was sent to Gov. Cuomo Wednesday. The governor has 10 days from then to approve or reject the plan.
