We are getting information about Mary Cooke’s seat on the Niagara River Greenway Commission. We are hearing she has no place sitting on this board now that she is no longer the Supervisor of the Town of Grand Island. We are hearing she is refusing to give up her seat. This is also the Commission that oversees the Scenic Woods Grant (CLICK HERE). This is the same $300,000 Grant the Town of Grand Island is at risk of losing? And Mary Cooke sits on the Board. REALLY? ARE YOU SERIOUS!
Read Deputy Supervisor James Sharpe’s comments on this to Time Warner News. CLICK HERE
So let’s understand this. Mary sits on a board that has the $300,000 grant and the Town of Grand Island is past deadlines for reporting. How many meetings was Mary Cooke in that the board told her Grand Island needed to make filings? We need the Minutes to uncover this. I just went to their website and see that site is missing those minutes. Hey Mary, did you delete those Documents too?
WELL MARY, WHEN WERE YOU GOING TO TELL ANYONE IN THE TOWN ABOUT THE DELINQUENT REPORTING? OR DID YOU? WE KNOW YOU DIDN’T TELL NATHAN MCMURRAY, JAMES SHARPE OR BEVERLY KINNEY! DID YOU TELL MIKE MADIGAN, CHRIS ARONICA OR RAY BILLICA? THAT WOULD REALLY MAKE THIS INTERESTING!!! REMEMBER YOU DELETED ALL YOUR EMAILS IN TOWN HALL SO NO ONE KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON. OR WERE YOU JUST GOING TO WAIT AND WATCH THE TOWN LOSE THE GRANT AND BLAME THE NEW SUPERVISOR NATHAN MCMURRAY?
We are working on an expanded story and will be posting that soon.
