'm not surprised Rep. Reed is taking an interest in the lake. After all, the lake's quality affects the values of the lake front properties owned by the wealthy elite in our region and we all know he works for them, not us, his constituents.

I come to this conclusion because Mr Reed voted to continue the government shutdown and initiate a debt crisis because he thinks the government is too liberal with its spending. Well, I agree they are too liberal with their spending, I just disagree that it's the middle and working classes that are getting it all. Much more is being tossed in the direction of the 1 percenters, like the majority of people who can afford lakefront property on Chautauqua Lake.

the watershed coordinator and organization is now a joke, Originally it was volunteer representatives from each community around lake until the wrong people seen a way to turn it into business and now paid position. This is the first government position needed to be eliminated to better serve the lake!!!The monies now being paid for these new position could go to buy chemicals to treat lake instead of a politicians friends pocket.

I am glad that Congressman Reed is meeting directly with those involved and bringing the top person from the Army Corp to hear first-hand what needs to be done! He is taking a proactive approach.

I totally agree with the first comment! There seems to always be funding for things that shouldn't be funded T all. The lake should be a priority, period!

Reed says "What can I do?" The lake management funding is merely an issue that he will do what he can to help. Way to be enthusiastic, Reed! Way to be a problem solver - just wait for the answers to come to you! He had no help or insight on this problem and I am sure he didn't even want to be here. We really need to vote in someone that cares about us and isn't just looking forward to getting out of here, back to his "big cities."
