Look forward to voting out Giles. His personal conduct is immoral.

His only source of income is getting reimbursed for driving to meetings. He hasn't had a job for years.

Next we vote out Cleaver and Leone.

Giles is an embarrassment to this community. Showering in the women's locker room? And driving a guy around that vandalized cars. Enough.

If our options are embarrassment Giles, NAACP Horton, and this preservationist Austin woman, she is the least nuts by a mile. BTW I read she went to Yale, can you imagine having someone who went to college let alone an ivy league college sitting next to the troll former bus driver leone? It is embarrassing how many of eries elected officials didn't go to college. We deserve better

So we have horton who likes minorities, giles who likes young men hopped up on pilles, and austin who likes old buildings. Seriously is there even a decision here? Austin will win by a landslide as the least nuts.

Giles has no job, Horton has no job,(and when he had a job running the local NAACP is not a real job) and Austin is a professor at edinboro. You know the times is going to back one of the unemployed paracitic nut jobs.

here's my district's chance to have a rep on council that has actually accomplished something. Austin by far is the brightest one of that group. Do any of them work besides Austin? I don't think so. I heard Pamula? is a plant by Giles to split the vote. They did the same thing 4 years ago.

No, Lisa Austin doesn't work and really knows nothing about County Council and does she realize that any gaming money or county funds for the arts "She will not be able to Vote on many of those ordinances or grant monies from the gaming funds that have to do with the arts and development grants which are many. They are all looking for grant money from the restricted or unrestricted funds from gaming. She would have to refrain.

Maybe we should complain about the recent 1st reading of a proposed $48K expense to build a rock garden at the District Attorney's office.

Lisa Austin seems like she actually thinks and exercises some common sense. Everytime I have heard her speak it is evident she has done her homework. If she care about "things," maybe that is a sign that she will put the community first before her political career. I am hopeful if she wins that she can bring Erie County back to 2013 instead of 20 years behind. I wonder if she will be a council person that can't be bought. Is there such a thing?

Evidently, I don't think you know what your speaking about because Lisa Austin has only been able to answer questions that she is prepared for. She cannot speak anything of council, the budget, or proceedings off the top of her head because she's never attended a council meetings and when you hear her talk her references are more of city council than county council.

Renee was not the only one who complained about OCY. If you had attended the council meetings you would have known that there were many families that went to council to complain about the wrong doing of OCY.

I suppose your grandparents went to college, or are you embarrassed about them too.
