Buffalonians Rally for Religious Freedom

BUFFALO, NY-- The battle over religious freedom took center stage in downtown Buffalo.  Over one thousand people showed up during the lunch hour at Niagara Square for the so-called "Rally for Religious Freedom".

It was organized in response to the Obama Administration's HHS Mandate which forces private citizens and institutions to pay for abortion-inducing drugs, contraception, and sterilizations. 

Although Catholics have been outspoken against this mandate, it was not just Catholic's there today.

Reverend Jason McGuire of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedom was one of several protestant pastors to speak at the rally. He said he represents 5,000 evangelical congregations across New York State who stand together with their Christian brothers and sister in opposing this federal mandate.

"I think it's important for people to realize that this is not just a Catholic issue but it's a religious liberty issue," said McGuire.

Changes at Water Authority

Buffalo, N.Y. - A 2 On Your Side investigation last year into the Erie County Water Authority's lease at the Ellicott Square Building is resulting in changes that will bring savings to rate payers.

Our investigation revealed that the Authority, under its current five year lease, is paying $22,000 a month, or $263,000 a year.

We pointed out that although that is a competitive rate for downtown office space, space in the suburbs would be much cheaper.

And speaking of the suburbs, that's where all of the Authority's customers are located, and so if they need to come downtown to the Ellicott Square to talk about service problems or a bill they have to pay to park.

The Authority's current lease expires at the end of April.

On Thursday, one of the Authority's three commissioners, Fran Warthling, made his case to be re-appointed by the Erie County Legislature for another three year term to the $22,000 a year part-time job.
