NiagaraFallsPolitics.com is dedicated to analyzing and evaluating the Niagara Falls political scene. Specifically, our mission is to find answers to the question which has haunted virtually every person who has stood on the American side of the Falls and gazed quizzically at the boundless panorama of development so evident on the other side of the Niagara River.
Why is it that Niagara Falls, Ontario, has become a cornucopia of job-creating economic development, whereas the American side has remained in the same cycle of decline at least since Marilyn Monroe arrived to strut her stuff in the movie “Niagara” some 58 years ago?
The answer may well lie in a tradition of ineffective municipal leadership and governmental complacency, which has turned the “Honeymoon Capital of the World” into a magnet for the kind of malaise unemployment and poverty inevitably create.
We invite all those interested in the welfare and future of Niagara Falls, NY to share your thoughts and ideas with us. We can only succeed when the Niagara Falls community truly prospers.
