Chamber is WRONG about this. Just like they were WRONG on the low income housing that they advocated to be built in Dunkirk.

The report from the CGR clearly states the Home operates at a SURPLUS. Yes, it is with the IGT funds..similar to every school in this county, our roads, the sheriff dept, etc. They ALL receive state and federal funds in addition to local funds. How many of them have a SURPLUS?

Is it not time for the Chamber to advocate for good paying jobs in our County? They should be working on ways to get companies to move to our County rather than looking for ways to shut down sell off our assets.

By the way if the sale of the HOME ever goes through our taxes will not decrease one cent. The Chamber knows this.
