Republican Congressional hopeful Jane Corwin stops in Batavia today.
The Clarence Assemblywoman, just endorsed by the GOP to run for the seat left suddenly vacant by Chris Lee, will formally announce her candidacy today.
She has scheduled an appearance on the steps of the Old County Courthouse at Noon.
The Democrats have yet to name a candidate in the traditionally Republican district.
One person not getting the nod from either party, Clarence businessman Jack Davis, tells the Buffalo News he will run a campaign as an independent.
Davis ran for the seat three times, as a democrat, and lost.
Questions continue to surround the murder of a 15-year-old Albion girl.
Hundreds attended a wake last night for Kathleen Sanchez, the girl allegedly raped and strangled by her sister’s husband.
Kathleen was missing for over a month before police ever announced her disappearance. Police say the delay was because the suspect, her brother in law, 21-year-old Carlo Cardenas, was not yet in custody. Police say he has confessed to the crime.
The Genesee County Local Drug Enforcement Task Force take another suspected dope dealer off the streets.
Lawmen have arrested 29-year-old Brandon Brade of Pembroke on two felony charges.
Brade allegedly sold crack cocaine to an undercover agent.
The Alliance for Quality Education confirmed many fears with their data on the governor's proposed budget.
The group says Cuomo's funding cuts to education will take away an average $773 per student from high-need urban schools.
Districts classified as low need will only lose $333 per student.
Alliance leaders believe the cuts will only deepen the disparity between low-income students and their wealthier counterparts.
School board members from throughout Genesee County will hear directly from local state representatives tonight on the impact of the latest state budget on education.
The public is invited to attend the session tonight at 6:30 in the John Kennedy School auditorium.
State Senator Michael Ranzenhofer and Assemblymen Steve Hawley and Dan Burling are scheduled to attend.
