Governor Hochul has announced her pick for the new Lt Governor, Representative Antonio Delgado.  Delgado is known for fundraising and traveling his district.  He worked for a NYC law firm before entering politics in 2018.  Delgado’s congressional district runs from the eastern part of the Capital Region south into the Hudson Valley. He lives in Rhinebeck with his wife and children.  Lt Governor Brian Benjamin resigned last month after being charged with corruption.

A group of democrats have sued for the federal courts to reinstate the democrat drawn voting map that was thrown out by the state supreme court last week.  They argue that even if the maps were drawn to favor Democrats, it is too late to draft new maps and that the judge who ordered the primaries delayed didn’t have the authority to do so.  Republicans say the lawsuit is a desperate attempt by Democrats “to preserve their unconstitutional gerrymander.”

The groundbreaking for the new Ellicott Station Apartment complex took place Tuesday.  Genesee County and Batavia leaders threw some dirt to ceremonially start the construction.  The new 55 unit apartment building  is to be built on 3.3 acres of land and investor Sam Savarino believes that Batavia is a more affordable area in this higher cost housing market.  The project is part of Batavia’s Downtown Revitalization initiative and is located within a state-designated Brownfield Opportunity Area, which requires abatements and remediation from prior use of toxic materials on the property.

Both Minni and Lopez are still on the postal service payroll as of Tuesday afternoon. The spokesman said Minni is no longer engaging with the mail.  Minni is in custody and Lopez was released pending her next court appearance.
