  • why this hack again ? what fresh ideas will he bring to a city in a state of terminal decline ? Where is a Michael Bloomberg for Buffalsow ? 

  • Maybe the media made Thompson appear as a hack but he was the author of the ban on hydrofracking. Now the hydrofracking ban is in danger.

  • Paying your Chief of Staff $86,000 is certainly a scandal in itself but leaving the office for a week during a senate session for anything other than an illness is just plain stupid and I think Tim Kennedy learned from it. Kennedy pays his Chief of Staff less than $70,000 and his CoS isn’t dumb enough to leave the office for a week. After watching what the media rightfully did to Thompson, Kennedy would have to be an imbecile to do the same thing. Luckily Kennedy is not.

  • Please stop believing every lie the media puts out!   Senator Thompson missed ONE session day when he went to Jamaica and the senate ended up cancelling session that day because of bad weather.  People should do their homework before reinforcing these lies.  It’s all public record!
