What is going in Cortland behind Moe’s
First stop Friday, The Showcase hosted by the Cortland Area Chamber of Commerce The Chamber. Kudos to President and CEO Bob Haight and The Chamber staff on putting together Cortland’s largest annual business and networking event. Visited many of the small businesses in attendance including Cortland Beer Company, LLC, Cortland Voice, New York Bagel Cafe & Deli and many others. Supporting small business and farmers and making it easier to survive in NYS is among my top priorities as your next Senator!
It has been 5 years since the NYS Ban Puppy Mills in Pet Stores bill #A4283 was first introduced. The bill would have stopped NYS pet stores’ support of puppy mills and helped find homes for our community shelter animals. Puppy mill animals endure horrific lives and deaths. Seems like any human with a heart would support this bill which was introduced nearly 5 years ago. https://www.humanesociety.org/all-our-fights/stopping-puppy-mills The bill passed in the Senate two years in a row, only to be DOA committee after committee in the Assembly. A4283 Ban Puppy Mills in Pet Stores bill’s only roadblock is OUR NYS assembly members. https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/bills/2021/a4283 Please contact your assembly member, ask them to support and cosponsor A4283. Isn’t 5 years long enough to wait to help these animals? Thank you.
Here's Alex with an update on our power outage situation. Everyone is fine, but we ended up needing to call the fire department and will be closing the office for the rest of the day. Thank you to our first responders for keeping everyone safe and to the Cortland Voice for helping us get the word out! [Video description: Alex provides the update above and gives a summary of ATI's programs and services. Stay tuned for updates about when we can reopen.]
I would like to seriously know if any of our city leaders are at all concerned about the condition of the city streets....and why is nothing being done??????
Anyone know anything who hit and broke off a telephone pole in Lapeer yesterday? NYE&G was outthere last night putting a new one up. How do you do that then just drive away out of a snow covered field? Did they get hurt? Must have been during the snow storm when the wind was really blowing. Lapeer mystery.
Going to be a fun show! Just up the road in Syracuse
We adopted out these two sisters late October on a trial basis, to a young couple in Dryden, who broke up a month later, and refuse to tell us where they are, each saying the other one has them, and then saying a couple in Cortland has them. We think they may have been dumped, and are offering a $300 REWARD for proof of their whereabouts. If they are in a good home, that would be wonderful! We are worried about them, and didn't trap, tame, spay and vaccinate, them to just end up in a bad situation. No one involved seems to have basic decency in this matter. Please call 607-765-6185.
