On April 22, Lampman lost her bid to secure the Democratic Party endorsement. She was selected to run for trustee, but was set to decline when her party was disqualified April 23.

When it was all said and done, Artpark did get approved for an estimated $100,000 in town funding assistance.

Op-ed: Taking a regional approach to Niagara County tourism
Mon, Apr 28th 2014 11:20 am
Becker Farms has been in the local tourism business for more than 30 years. As a fully operational farm, we offer a family-friendly experience, including a petting zoo, strawberry and apple picking and various other hands-on activities throughout the year. But for a good majority of the time we've been in business, our visitors are primarily members of the local community.

However, in the last decade, we have seen an emergence in visitors who are coming to see Niagara Falls and have added a side trip to Becker Farms and eastern Niagara County to their itinerary.

This is the result of the hard work of the Niagara Tourism & Convention Corp. as it continues to promote all of Niagara County, including eastern Niagara County.
