Update On The Fatal Fire In Genesee Pennsylvania

Its being reported on social media and elsewhere that two Allegany county residents were killed in yesterday’s fire, Mikalah Roulo, 16, a sophomore at Wellsville High School and Krysta Kane, 16, a sophomore at Scio Central School.

From Jeff Spaulding, Police Chief for the City of Corning:  "It has come to the attention of the City of Corning Police Department that there is a mail package being sent to residents from an organization calling themselves “Citizens Behind the Badge”. They purport to raise funds on behalf of the City of Corning Police Department. Although this organization is a registered not-for-profit group, The City of Corning Police Department, and the Crystal City Police Benevolent Association, have no association with them, and cannot vouch for their reliability. The City of Corning does not receive the funds donated and it is believed that the donated funds do not stay in our community.  The Police Department would like all residents to be aware that this is circulating around our community. Please be aware, and residents should do their own research anytime they receive any type of fund-raising requests to try and ensure that the request is legitimate.” 


LT Governor Brian Benjamin Has Been Charged By The Feds

This morning, the U.S. Attorneys Office and the FBI announced that Lt Governor Brian Benjamin, was accused of using $50,000 in taxpayer money, to a political donor.  From Steuben County Democrat Chairman Shawn Hogan: “I am angry first and foremost that Brian Benjamin failed to reveal to Governor Hochul that he was under investigation during her LG selection process. We all agree that you are innocent until proven guilty. However I strongly believe that LG should immediately resign for his failure to reveal he was under investigation. Governor Hochul should move quickly to insure he resigns.”  

From Assemblywoman Majorie Byrnes: “As disappointing as this news is, it should not come as a shock as this administration is simply a continuation of the previous administration’s corruption. Moreover, both the governor and lieutenant governor are unelected political appointees who have passed the most expensive budget in state history in the most secretive process in recent memory and failed to include meaningful reforms. All I can say is that taxpayers, the hardworking men and women of this state, deserve better.”
