FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 11, 2018
"I strongly support expanding Metro Rail service to the UB North Campus and, as a member of the United States Senate, I will lead the fight to deliver federal funding for this vital project. Connecting suburban commuters with SUNY's largest university and Buffalo's resurgent downtown is critically important to the region's future. Every year New York State taxpayers send $48 billion more to Washington than we get in return. I am focused on bringing our tax dollars home to invest in vital infrastructure projects like Metro Rail's expansion, revitalize our economy and create jobs. For too long, the Washington politicians have sent our money to other parts of the country, instead of making our state a priority. I will champion this project and others that will spur Buffalo's continued renaissance."
