Leg­is­la­tor in­vites Chick-fil-A to open restau­rant in county

The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS - – Thomas J. Pro­haska

Chick-fil-A may be un­wanted at the Buf­falo Ni­a­gara In­ter­na­tional Air­port by some, but the pop­u­lar restau­rant chain would be wel­come in Ni­a­gara County, a leg­is­la­tor said.

Ni­a­gara County Leg­is­la­tor Jesse P. Gooch, R-Wheat­field, sub­mit­ted a res­o­lu­tion invit­ing Chick-fil-A to open a restau­rant in Ni­a­gara County. Af­ter the Ni­a­gara Fron­tier Trans­porta­tion Au­thor­ity an­nounced the chicken sand­wich shop would be com­ing to the air­port, Assem­bly­man Sean Ryan, D-Buf­falo, ob­jected over its al­leged anti-gay bias.

“Af­ter last week’s or­deal, I spoke with many Ni­a­gara County res­i­dents who couldn’t be­lieve Chick-fil-A was be­ing blocked,” Gooch said. “As their rep­re­sen­ta­tive, I felt it was nec­es­sary to make it known that not all in Western New York buy into this hy­per­po­lit­i­cal lu­nacy.”
