SORT BY Relevancy
We're interrupting our series on James Madison's view of the phrase "a convention for proposing amendments", mainly because of an interruption in my weekly schedule which included a lengthy meeting with my State Senator. While the meeting is fresh on my mind, I thought I'd take advantage of this Providence to discuss some of the ways to contact your State Legislators, what to ask them when you do meet them, and some of the decorum and best practices.
Today's episode is airing a little later in the day, as my weekly schedule has been tossed and turned multiple times, both from work and from Convention of States.
As always, we'll present the latest news in the Convention of the States. And, we'll allow time for your phone calls.
Our guest for this segment of the Vince Anello Show is Niagara County Legislator and Minority Leader Dennis Virtuoso.
Legislator Virtuoso announced his bid for reelection to the legislative seat that he has held for 24 years.
Numerous callers wanted to elaborate on the relationship between the county and the municipalities and the big question is, do we really need County government?
One all the callers wanted to discuss negative comments that I have made toward some public officials. I was happy to elaborate.

Legislator Dennis Virtuoso, who is also the minority leader, represents the 6th Legislative District, Legislator Jason Zona represents the 5th Legislative District and Legislator Mark Grozio represents the 3rd Legislative District. The main topic of discussion was the Department of Social Services Direct Pay voucher program for rental units for their clients. Two years ago the Niagara County Legislature passed a law that would have landlords receive rental vouchers directly. There was a recent effort by the legislature to rescind that part of the law but it was brought back to committee. The frozen water line issue in Niagara Falls was also discussed.

It’s time to talk straight about the war between God and Satan that is going on in our souls.

It is time to talk back and tell it like it is!
