It is sad to see all the partisan hate. Love them or hate them, Tom Reed, Cathy Young and Andy Goodell kept Lakeshore Hospital open. That is a reason for celebration no matter what your political persuasion is.

Every comment on here is ridiculous- this is an elected official thanking those at each level for their involvement. A damaged facility has many avenues to repair, and seeking help from all officials is the only way to get that done. Thank you to all those involved, and thank you to the workers as well.

Truth of the matter as stated, Young got a loan for Lakeshore that has to be paid back. Reid pushed FEMA to pay money that should have been decided on years ago and paid. The people who need to be thanked are the employees of Lakeshore who have been riding this storm out and the residents of our communities who continue to utilize services that Lakeshore provides.

I think thanking those who have made efforts to help Lake shore Hospital is fine, However, I wish George would take the same interest in the County Home. His constituent work there and live there yet he is willing to turn away from them for a sale which will give the taxpayers no return. I find this unfortunate.

Exceptions facts get in the way. As much as Young's efforts are appreciated the $1,000,000 she got was a loan, not a grant. Something she failed to say at the rally. And Reed made one phone call to FEMA the day before the rally. But Schumer has been working with them for months. Give credit where it is due.

kissing butt has always gained more for a "politician" than shaking a hand but has left many a chapped lip and bad breath

Is this a letter to thank those who've been at the forefront of this battle from day one, or a partisan kiss to a particular individual? Hmm...let me see...
