Mike, because you asked, yes I will post my reply to Mr. Bello's NPA Letter. I am not as kind as Mike... and I could not find a release of that letter that found its way to the Facebook page, at least not on Mr. Bello's FB pages. Not sure where the PDF came from, for now it's "alleged" to be written by Mr. Bello. LOL

--- ECNA Co-Founder Response to Mr. Bello's NYPA letter ---

The letter was a joke...

And Mr Bello...just another local politician who believes it's better to support causes that may yield votes, than to support  state efforts to improve public safety in the Erie Canal Corridor.

No trees on dams, that's the rule, unless they meet a very limited and narrow criteria that will insure dam sustainability and public safety. That's the rule, the best practice and the DEC requirement in many US states... but for some reason it won't work here? Why not?

I'm sure that Mr Bello does not think this same way about other safety related issues, like Car, Health, and Life insurance purchases.

Probably hasn't been in a car accident but still makes sure he has insurance. It's a rule to drive in NY State and also to protect oneself.

Same reason that people and property owners clear vegetation on earthen dams.

Mr Bello probably hasn't been sick in awhile, but still makes sure his family is protected with affordable health care... won't leave that to chance.

But he can let Canal Communities and Neighbors live in danger from unsafe earthen embankments.

And he's healthy, why bother with life insurance, when death seems so far away?

No, I'm sure that he has a policy to protect his family in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

Just like State Requirements for keeping Earthen Embankments covered with grass and not invasive vegetation.

Just another political hypocrite in Monroe County...what's new?

Don't waste your breath Mike, Mr Bello doesn't appear to care about facts, truth, or public safety.

Why else would he think he could find the answers to safer canal embankment dams on Facebook, in a group fighting against public safety and safer water impoundments.

What a joke his letter was, not one shred of truth, not one statement that supports the safety of NY residents...

But I'm sure he has the admiration (and votes) from the Stop the Canal Clear-cut leaders and the members they have brainwashed. And one day he just might wake up to see how wrong he was on public safety...

How can anyone sleep at night that turns a public safety program into an argument about "the environment"?

It has to be the most crass thing anyone can do. This is about shade to some, while those in danger, like canal neighbors, have to worry about water washing their homes and lives away. Go on Mr Bello...please DENY the public safety issue with unsafe Erie Canal dams as much as you want... the only one looking foolish will be you.

Tell the local news  that you and a group on Facebook don't believe the danger along the Erie Canal is "real".

Mike, I don't know why you let these ignorant people bother you so much. In the end those that fight against public safety will be shown for what they truly are... wrong.


Please release your EEIP Maintenance package and restore safety to canal neighbors, before more politicians make fools of themselves.
