This bombshell information surfaced during his own trial for inappropriate use of the Maziarz political treasury and includes unsavory pushed-through deals at the county level — and much more — involving the political figures he helped create: attorney Henry Wojtaszek, recent Niagara County GOP chairman Scott Kiedrowski, Assemblyman Mike Norris as well as other widely-known political figures.

EDITORIAL: Frank observations on single-party politics going into Tuesday’s critical elections

I’ve been faithfully attending North Tonawanda’s common council meetings for the past year and half partly because it’s my job as editor of Niagara News Source.

But as an individual, it was also well past time for me to get informed, involved and finally speak up in the city where I was born, raised and will continue to live in.
