Why aren’t they stated here in this article?,I’m not a Democrat, but I’m willing to listen to any reasonable person no matter what affiliation. I have not seen the original post so I’m mildly curious to know what was said. I hope the lady is okay and starting to feel safer, she didn’t deserve threats of physical or mental harm if that is the case. People of all parties are just so angry and frustrated at the moment and everyone is dividing and closing their minds. The world will never be the same, and our freedom of speech is a joke, most of them are. Our constitutional rights were walked all over by the FED and anyone else telling us we have to wear masks and stand 6 feet away from each other. It’s been like kindergarten. And everyone obeyed, that’s the scary part.,Personally I am a Trump supporter yet I am a registered Democrat. I worked on both of President Obama’s campaigns as well as President Trump’s. Much like Ms. Cardinale I don’t let anyone, much less a political party, define my beliefs. The most defining belief Ms. Cardinale has is that Chautauqua County is under represented or lacking a voice in Albany. I met Ms Cardinale 2 or 3 years ago when she became the marketing and sales director of a major downtown business. She is both enthusiastic, intelligent and wants only the best for Chautauqua County.As for her opponent…I’ve known him since my return to Chautauqua County in 1992. Literally the only time I hear of or from him is during an election year asking for my vote. I believe that if we want to be heard…Ms. Cardinale is not only our best choice… she is our ONLY choice. Democratic State Assembly candidate Christina Cardinale.Image via Christina Cardinale For State Assembly / Facebook.JAMESTOWN – The Democrat candidate for Chautauqua County’s State Assembly seat is speaking out after she says she received threats of violence online.Christina Cardinale tells WNYNewsNow since launching her campaign she has received threats surrounding her supposed second amendment stance.“There seems to be a misunderstanding. I’ve received threats from individuals who are pro-second amendment,” says Cardinale. “I am also pro-second amendment. I grew up in a pro-gun household, with a parent who is an avid hunter. I was taught the necessary skills and knowledge for gun-ownership at a very young age.”Cardinale says her affiliation with the Democratic party has led to misinformation. She is now requesting patience and understanding from the community. “I identify as an independent Democrat. That may sound odd at first, but, ideologies are so divided right now, that’s the best way I can define myself,” furthered Cardinale. “I like to think independently. I don’t follow any politician blindly. I won’t base my decisions on partisanship. I’m interested in Chautauqua County’s best interest, not taking sides.”She added that some of the threatening messages contained references to socialism or politicians who identify as Democratic Socialists of America. Cardinale says that she is sad people jump to conclusions based on her political affiliation.“I think some assumptions are being made. I’m being compared to other political figures in the Democratic party,” said Cardinale. “I’m happy to ease the concerns of the community. I’m pro-gun. I’m not a socialist. I’m not going to infringe on the rights of Americans. I’m on your side. I’m not the enemy.”Cardinale called for peace among community members, stressing the importance of working together.“I want to work together and move Chautauqua County forward,” said Cardinale. “I politically challenge my opponent because I truly believe he has harmed our community for far too long. That’s the only challenge I’m interested in.”Cardinale said she has since sought advice from local law enforcement on how to react to the threats.She is running against incumbent Republican Assemblyman Andy Goodell in the fall general election.

Image via PxHere / United States House of Representatives.CORNING – Congressman Tom Reed says he sees the possibility of a stimulus package being passed during the end of the Trump Administration.Reed held his weekly teleconference with reporters Wednesday morning. The Congressman started his call by discussing recent developments with stimulus negotiations, which he says involved a series of meetings with White House officials, along with bipartisan members with both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate.Reed says he sees “a path” for a possible package.“I think there is a path forward here to put an emergency bill together by the end of the year,” Reed said. “Talking to the folks that are involved in these conversations, in particular the White House, an indication that the President will sign a package that we negotiate in good faith.” The Congressman explains, however, that the package would be “significantly” smaller than the $1.8 trillion package that was on the table before the election. In addition, Reed says that he’s concerned that Congressional leadership is more focused on the runoff election in Georgia rather than a COVID stimulus package.“That is, in my opinion, downright disappointing, and also, in my opinion, has their priorities all wrong,” Reed said. “The priority should be the American people who are suffering, who need a stimulus package. The size of the package would get us through the March 1 deadline.”Reed says the package would give “immediate relief” to the American people while also allowing the Biden Administration to determine if additional relief would be needed later in 2021. The Congressman additionally says that he and an increasing group of Congressional members are gearing to lead the fight for a package.“We will continue to push, and I can tell you we are not going to just sit back idly by as a group of pragmatic governing members,” Reed said. “We are going to use every tool in the tool box, and we are getting stronger and stronger each and every day, saying ‘Enough is enough of leadership for putting politics over people’ and we are getting ready to lead if they don’t want to do that, we’ll take over and make sure people’s concerns are the top priority as we go forward, especially with the upcoming Congressional Session.” Share:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)

View Comments We have our first proper look at Tony winners Audra McDonald, Billy Porter and more preparing for Shuffle Along, Or, The Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed. The show, which bills itself as a revival, was recently featured on CBS Sunday Morning. “This is a part of my history and I didn’t know it,” said McDonald about her reasons for joining the production.

Adam Jacobs, the only person to ever headline both musicals, explained that although it may not look like it, “the truth is there is no competition…we really enjoy being with each other!” Check out the videos below; Aladdin is playing at the New Amsterdam Theatre, while The Lion King is reigning over the Minskoff.
Happy Friday/Bea Arthur’s Birthday! Before you go off to celebrate with the requisite viewing of Bea singing ”Don’t Rain on My Parade,” let’s catch up in the form of the Lessons of the Week. A lot’s happened in the past seven days, from the Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards (that, yes, still feel good on your butt!) to a heavy metal bread-stealing convict. Learn all about both (and more) below. Daveed Also Has a Broadway BoyfriendThere’s a lot of love at Hamilton, and a good amount comes from Daveed Diggs. The Tony nominee and Broadway.com Audience Choice Award winner recently did a whole media blitz around town and claimed fellow nominees and co-stars Jonathan Groff and Christopher Jackson as his imaginary boyfriend and “pop.” Suddenly our affection for our Broadway boyfriend and Mama Broadway seem normal. Tuck’s Ready to Take the RoadWe already know what musical-themed restaurants you’d frequent, but food trucks are hot right now. The She Loves Me truck serves ice cream; the Waitress truck offers up pies; the Tuck Everlasting truck that Michael Park pitched to us this week would serve miracle water. Perhaps they can call it the Truck Everlasting. And with those #TuckBoys, we don’t think they’d have any problem quenching thirst. Borle’s Resume’s Full of Pure ImaginationThere’s cloning in Star Wars, right? Because Christian Borle seems to have mastered it. The Something Rotten! Tony winner has already been tapped to lead the upcoming revival of Falsettos, and now he’s adding Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to this list as he takes on the role of Willy Wonka. Wow, it really is hard to be the bard, if only for all just running around. Massell Was In the Room Where…YeahSamantha Massell knows a thing or two about how smooth Lin’s trophies are since she once interned for the Tony winner. The Fiddler star’s duties (in addition to making sure that BACA was smooth for optimal butt rubbing) included playing Guitar Hero and ordering pizza. Wait, this sounds less like an intern and more like a bro. A bro with a beautiful head voice. Nothing wrong with that. Savion Glover Is Ready to Shuffle BackIt’s a good time to be in Shuffle Along, and not just because of the 10 Tony nods. The cast can now perform the show without fear of being locked in a closet by Savion Glover. After vaguely threatening to do just that, it was announced that the Tony-winning choreographer will step into the musical. All it takes is some perseverance…and telling Broadway.com what you really, really want. Right, Norm? Everything’s Coming Up BabiesHold up, Michael Park. We think there might be something in that water. Earlier this week, we learned that Shuffle Along headliner Audra McDonald and offstage leading man Will Swenson are expecting a child. The next day, we got the news that Annaleigh Ashford and Joe Tapper have a son on the way. Is it OK if we send a few of these to Eggfartopia and whatever magical land Annaleigh and Joe live in? The BACAs Feel Good All OverYears ago, we learned Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards feel good of your butt, thanks to Lin-Manuel Miranda and Susan Blackwell. However, that’s not the only place they feel good. At this year’s party, Lin’s Hamilton co-star Leslie Odom Jr. gave his trophy a rub on his head and was indeed satisfied with the outcome. Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards: Pleasing to your body since 2000! Valjean Is a Clandestine Head BangerWhen he’s getting ready to take on the role of Jean Valjean, you’d expect John Owen-Jones to catch a few minutes in silence, or warm up that classical tone, right? Not exactly. The Les Miz star can instantly turn the character on like a switch and rocks out to the likes of Iron Maiden just before stepping on stage. Does this mean if he went into School of Rock, he’d warm up with long, French soliloquies? Alex Brightman Expects More; Pays LessAnna Wintour is heading back to the Tonys to dress select nominees, but we’re thinking it’d be best to skip over Alex Brightman as she goes through the lineup. The School of Rock headliner confessed that instead of “real people clothes,” he’d much rather rock some sweatpants or sweatshorts from Target. No worries, Alex. We’ve got you covered. All we ask is that you invite us to the next Cup of Jaybe. Broadway’s Short a GrizabellaWe already have a parade of jellicles lined up to take over the Neil Simon Theatre, but with the news that Nicole Scherzinger will not be joining them this summer, Cats is short a glamour cat. You can be disappointed about it, or perhaps use this as an excuse for an epic YouTube spiral of belting felines. May we suggest this as a start? Take it away, Féline Dion!
