Councilman wasn’t speaking for Yates Town Board in his opinion piece

Posted 22 June 2016 at 12:00 am


I read, with great interest, Mr. Pierce’s commentary on the “Who Has the D” opinion piece submitted to and published in The Orleans Hub, The Buffalo News and the NYS Department of Public Service site.

Mr. Pierce is mistaken in his belief that the piece represented the opinion of Yates Town Board. The piece was signed: John Riggi, Councilman, Town of Yates. It was not signed: John Riggi, Representing the Town Board of Yates. As such, Mr. Pierce can rest assured that the Town Board view was not represented in the opinion piece.

As always, I am available to all constituents to speak directly on any questions they may have.

John Riggi
Councilman, Town of Yates
