In response to reports that Lockport-based Racial Nationalist Party of America flyers were distributed on several streets in Cheektowaga, Assemblymember Monica Wallace (D-Lancaster) has issued the following statement:
This hateful, divisive rhetoric has no place in our community or any community. Those looking to divide us will find no sympathy and no success here.
While we do not yet know whether these flyers are genuine or just a pathetic joke, I feel it is imperative to speak out and say that this hateful rhetoric is not welcome here.
Cheektowaga is a welcoming community where we support our neighbors. Instead of allowing hate-filled agendas to gain traction in our community, we will continue to look out for all of our neighbors and value the growing diversity that makes Cheektowaga a great community.
