Speak up WNY is a site that does a real nice job in covering the political and community development news in the Western New York Area.
There are a number of topics that are covered by the writers here that you won’t hear discussed in the local media. There is nice coverage of most towns including Lancaster and Amherst. They also have a message board with some frequent posters who seem to have the inside scoop on local real estate development and politics.
I decided to write about the site after reading some nice coverage about the proposed Lancaster Wal-Mart. A couple of users there seem to have the inside scoop.
Give them a try. Buffalo NY and Buffalo New York News Speakupwny.com
