If you read/listen to nothing else on Peace Bridge expansion, you must listen to this WBEN radio podcast interview with Kathy Mecca, Columbus Park Association President and longtime Peace Bridge neighborhood resident. It is not only refreshing but also startling to hear someone actually speak to the heart of the matter and support the comments with the Truth!
Here are Kathy Mecca’s own words as introduction:
“Tom Puckett from WBEN interviewed me…to tell the community’s side of yet another threat of expansion at the Peace Bridge. I also had a chance to ‘try’ to explain the rope-a-dope logic behind the Governor’s plan to build anything on the U. S. side with the ‘full support’ of public officials.
“At the end of the interview, I humbly paid respect to this incredible community of volunteers and activisrts who for decades have been the gatekeeper to justice for Buffalo’s West Side.
“Thank you everyone: old, new and in between who always lead by example. I am so proud to be counted as a citizen soldier among you.”
And we thank you!
