"Of the Erie county Republican committee in October of 2022. He has spent his career in service to the Republican Party, a former executive director of the Erie county GOP. And senior congressional aide Michael has served in the Republican leadership positions at local state and federal level. I think you're still with rob ort, right? That's correct. Yeah, I work for the senator as senior adviser. Senior adviser, that sounds really important. So anytime we throw senior, and that's what happens in the financial world. It's funny. I won the title promotion, but what that amounts to at home. Glen and I, we started out the business at a company called paine Weber. And the deal was as you were either a regular adviser or that you were a vice president. And so a lot of my buddies, one of our buddies got that title of vice president. I'm like, so let me get this straight. If the president dies, you go up there, do you go to New York City and run this place? No, there was like so many. I don't think that's I don't think that's our chain. Unfortunately. So let me start with a question. I know Glen's got a bunch free as well. The Republican Party, at least for me, has been something that has been fading in the distance. I'm still a registered Republican. I talk about actually de registering and moving to being an independent or a conservative. To me, I see the Mitch Morris out there. I see the Mitt Romney's out there. And I just get sick and tired of, well, hey, we're going to have smaller government and lower taxes until we get into office. And then our big plan is better than their big plant. Where is the Erie county Republican Party? And I know this shit show is new to you. And I'll just say you don't have to say that, but I think you've been handed a pile of shit and God bless you for stepping up because I either you're highly medicated or you're extremely extremely brave to take that position.

Wouldn't a leader then be saying, hey, what could happen here if I don't make the correct response? What could happen if hundreds, thousands of cars are abandoned on roads? And we get nailed with this thing. What could happen to the people? Wouldn't leaders do that? Well, he knew on the 20th, Tuesday, the 20th, he already knew, and it wasn't until 9 30 a.m. on Friday, the 23rd. We knew this was hitting. They said it'll be like this deep freeze sets over at 8 a.m. on Friday morning, which means it's probably getting crappy from midnight Friday for 8 hours. It's getting bad.

"Have a vast amount of experience dealing with severe wintry weather, so why was this most recent blizzard there so deadly? Joining us to tackle that question a bit is Brianna sex who covers climate change fueled extreme weather and natural disasters for The Washington Post. Brianna, thank you as always for your time. Yeah, thanks for having me on. So what happened this go round in Buffalo and surrounding areas in Erie county up there? I think it was in large part due to a collision of just, you know, historic winter conditions. Really bad timing. It hit right before a holiday weekend on a payday in a city where 27% of residents live in poverty. So they really couldn't afford not to go to work or they were waiting for those checks to be able to go get last minute food or holiday gifts, supplies, that area like much of the country has seen a dwindling of emergency management resources, especially as a result of the pandemic. And then I think just like these types of New Yorkers being these types of New Yorkers, they've lived through historic winter events basically almost every year. They had one just last month, so I think even the officials said we assumed we could handle it and we were wrong You alluded to this. There are also community leaders and residents who you talked with that told you, structural issues such as poverty, food deserts, poor housing, and the lack of investment by government have made the impacts on working class black and brown neighborhoods as well much worse. Yes, I think it's important to look at the systemic issues that are very much apparent before these types of disasters strike because these people are already straddling the line of survival. They live in old 19th century buildings with poor insulation or electric stoves. They can't afford to go get two weeks of groceries. They really can't call in to work and say I can't come. They can't work from home. And yeah, they were already just really in bad shape before the storm struck. And so recovering from something like this is much, much harder. Now it's early yet, but is there any sign of optimism that the city and surrounding county might be able to solve some of these issues you were just talking about? I mean, I think it's a really complicated question. Again, complicated. I know some people haven't been happy with mayor brown's investment in policing. He, I think, diverted about $5 million to police budget for this most recent budget. Instead of needed community, social services, but I think what's really inspiring is the coordination and resiliency of so many of these community activists on the ground and that's been the overwhelming message from people I talk to is that we're focusing on self sufficiency. We protect us is like the message here and they're doing a lot of amazing work. Thank you so much for your time as always. We appreciate it. Yeah, thanks for having me on. Again, that's pretty sex.

Case CBS News time, 1232, time now for our daily tech and business report. A group of banks is taking action to protect themselves in the event of a cyberattack for more I spoke with Bloomberg news editor Andrew Martin. So Andrew, what are they doing? Obviously there's been a huge increase in the amount of cyberattacks on U.S. companies in the last couple of years, particularly with the sort of emergence of ransomware, which is a type of attack that locks up companies data in lieu of a ransom. And so a group of banks, several years ago, after a particularly bad attack, decided to figure out a way to sort of prepare for a kind of a doomsday scenario where some hacker would come in and wipe out a bank's data. And so what they did is they created it's basically the digital equivalent of a bank vault where typically in the old days of bank would put all their money and evolve at the end of the day. In this instance, they put all their critical data in a digital vault at the end of the day that's separated from the primary computer networks and backups of the system and the idea being if there was to be some sort of like catastrophic cyberattack or other events that wiped out a financial institution's data, they were at least have all that data from the previous day. It's called sheltered harbor. And so it's really kind of set up for banks primarily and now they're in the process of expanding it to other types of financial institutions, including insurance companies and asset managers and possibly allowing 401k accounts to be put into all at the end of the day. So expanding the other sectors because obviously banks aren't the only one with critical information. There have been a number of high profile cyberattacks in recent years, including Sony and Colonial Pipeline, this protects the information, but do we know what the banks are doing to prevent hacking in the first place? It kind of depends on the institution, but Jamie Dimon a few years ago said, I think you said they spent a half a $1 billion a year on cybersecurity. So from the big banks, in particular, are spending a lot of money on cybersecurity to prevent this from happening in the first place. But the reality is if a skilled tack or a particularly some of the best employed by governments wants to get into a company's networks, chances are they can. So I think the idea here was, again, if someone managed to get into one of these networks and there's types of malicious code that doesn't just steal data, it just wipes computers clean if that were to happen. At least it's not ideal, but at least they'd have that data backed up from the previous day. Typically, computer backups now, particularly for banks and whatnot, back of data several times a day, even several minutes, every couple of minutes, every couple of seconds, and you can imagine that stock exchanges and things like that. There's so much data that they have to back it up more regularly. But again, this is just for a kind of a doomsday scenario where everything's gone and something is better than nothing kind of idea.

"So it's the external environment, but also it's the internal workings of a party that positioned help position the candidates to win. You know, this has been noted certainly in some coverage, but I think you're hitting at a very key point as to part of why Lee zeldin is seemingly within striking distance, the polls have been a bit all over the place, but we can clearly see that there's a shot here for Republican when the last few races at least with Andrew Cuomo on the ballot and the Cuomo name and the huge fundraising advantages in the enrollment advantages have made those races pretty far apart. Within striking distance here. And that is the fact that he declared his run so early began criss-crossing the state last year. I really think even though he had to win a tough primary, he wound up winning it by a fairly wide margin against some real real competitors and part of that, I think, as you certainly has to do with how early he got in the race and started to really campaign aggressively. And now Democrats have pointed out he's missed some votes in Congress and so forth as part of that focus on the campaign, but in terms of being within striking distance, clearly jumping into the race early has had its advantages. Since we mentioned Nick langworthy, he's running for Congress right now in Erie county, the 23rd congressional district. How much of a challenge or maybe an advantage? I don't know, it seems like more of a challenge to me, but you'll tell me how much of a challenge or a help has it been to have the state party chair running his own election in a congressional district. Does that mean that a lot more responsibilities have been falling on you and some of the other people running the state party? How has that worked out for you? Well, before I answer that, I just want to add a couple of other things. You know, historically, in New York, there's been some hesitation with regard to embracing a Republican primary. A statewide offices, specifically governor. And I think that hesitation has been shattered. I think having the primary helped Lee Zelda. And it. Took a different turn than expectations in the past. So when you look at the candidates, acceptable one, they coalesced around the primary winner. I think which was a big boost again to have the primary, but all also coalesce around the winner. I think that was not only phenomenal, but that helped energize the party and to show unity.

And I think he's doing the right things right now. He's saying the right things. And I think he's fighting for the right things. And I think his message is getting across, right?

I mean, right off the bat, 50% Democrats in New York, 22% independence, 22% Republicans, you're basically down 40 to nothing, even percentage wise, even before the race begins. And now we're talking the race is so close the point or two way. But I think it shows what a train wreck, Kathy hochul is as a candidate. And the fact that people are angry about crime and inflation and immigration in New York. And I'll say those two stuff on. I mean, as much as you're saying, it shouldn't even be a race for the democratic side because they should dominate it. To me, I almost feel like that on the right only because of what our state and what's going on in our country looks like right now, right? I mean, how could someone like Kathy hochul even be close, really, at the end of the day, of course, I know people vote for their party. But when you look at her body of work, how can she even get 40 30, 20% of votes? It's shocking. How is it possible? Because if you really and honestly and truly have self reflection and look at your personal finances, your personal family, 99.999% of the people in New York State, if they answered honestly. Right.

Weekend Mass Shootings Dominate News Coverage
"Killer in laguna Woods, you may not know about. Yesterday afternoon, a 60 year old Asian man, that's the only description I have from the Los Angeles Times, stood up in a luncheon honoring a former pastor at a Taiwanese Christian church in laguna Woods, which is not far from my old home in Orange County. They were welcoming back for a luncheon, Jerry Chen, excuse me, I want to get that Jerry Chandler's the fellow gave the quote the former pastor's name is here somewhere I can't find it, but Tom Kramer, who is the head of the presbytery of Los ranchos. Again, I used to be a member of this Presbyterian. Kramer did not know if the pastor was harmed in the shooting, a pastor clobbered the gunman as he tried to reload with a chair and a bunch of the so called older victims. They were all in their 60s. Those not shot tackle them in hog tied in, but it's a 60 year old Asian man is the killer there. In Harris county, Texas, the more traditional weekend shooting, two young men shooting at each other, wounding three and killing two at a Harris county flea market. At 1 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. So guns are everywhere, The Wall Street Journal, however, wrote about the particular evil of the buffalo shooting. There is a culture of white supremacy in the United States and people need to understand not large, but it definitely evil and it's dangerous because it attracts the unbalance like this 18 year old this was pure evil said Erie county sheriff Garcia in an app summary of the mass murder at a cyber market in Buffalo writes The Wall Street Journal. That appears to be racially motivated. The alleged shooter 18 year old Peyton gendron, the last time you'll hear his name on my show, is another young man possessed by inexplicable hatred.

"It to be which is in flames It's going to support those that need support at this time You just alluded to this There have been at least 198 mass shootings this calendar year alone in the United States This is according to the gun violence archives To this point and it pains me to say this that this was the deadliest mass shooting of the year Do you have have you as an executive you've been in public office for some time Have you been talking about this as you said this isn't something that you ever think is going to happen to you But it is And I'm just wondering if there had been any discussions about how to respond to situations like this What kinds of interventions might be possible Well both the county and the city actually have active task forces that were together with regards to gun violence in our community The city of buffalo is not immune to gun violence in our community but we've worked hard especially with our partners and community organizations like peacemakers and stop the violence coalition to prevent the violence on the streets that often exists And we've done a good job but here's a situation where an individual who none of us know had ever heard of until yesterday from 200 miles away decided to drive three plus hours from the Binghamton area to buffalo to kill as many people as he could predominantly people of color And I don't know if any community can adequately prepare for some one you have no idea exists who wants to kill as many people in your community as he did But we do have active efforts on the ground to reduce gun violence which unfortunately is a significant problem in the United States today So before we let you go what are your thoughts about what happens next about the coming days I mean you've alluded several times to the fact that there's the act itself and then there's what it means And what it means to the people who are the targets of it and that's all something that everybody's got to process Have you thought about how you how the city how you and other leaders what are your thoughts about what happens next or their thoughts about how you go forward We in the community we have to heal We have to come together and that's already started There was a prayer vigil in front of the supermarket location today There's going to be a community wide prayer service at one of our local churches later this afternoon And that's going to continue as I said Erie county is providing free mental health counseling to those who need it regardless of whether they were a witness we're in the facility A law enforcement response or just someone who needs to talk to someone else about this horrible incident because of the pain it's caused So we're going to be actively engaged in this not just for a few days but probably weeks and months So that our community can recover It's the kind of scar that is always going to be there It's never going to be forgotten But it is something that we will work together to achieve a better community a stronger community and one that will not be defined by the incident and the shooter but we'll be defined by how we recover from it What do you need Well in government we deal with a lot This is my third term as county executive and what I've said is we have a strong team here and we work through it but if our staff in itself needs assistance we're not afraid to take it We've gone through a lot of crises here We're just coming off of course COVID And when it comes to government itself sometimes we forget that we provide services but sometimes we need them ourselves So I've also already told all of my staff including one of my key members of my administration who was basically on site as the event was going on let us not forget that we who were first responders and those that are working on behalf of the public are still public and you need to be assured that your mental health and your own health is taken care of So we're continuing to push that message with law enforcement first responders and others because when you when you deal with these issues you can compartmentalize them but you never forget them So you have to understand that we're human too And we all have we all have needs and we thankfully hopefully will take advantage of them as time goes by Well it's good to talk with you I'm sorry about the circumstances that bring us together but thank you for talking with us I'm happy to meet you I do hope we'll talk again Same here Michelle and thank you for your concern and interest As I said you see this in other communities You just hope it never.

"And so then we ended up the defense once the case was back in state court, succeeded in obtaining additional delays by limiting the scope of discovery for a while and trying to basically go as slowly as they could to see if they could wear us down and keep the case from seeing a courtroom and being tried. And so we went through numerous judges and weaved through various layers of discovery and finally, there could be no more delays. The defendants had obtained all the delays they could, and we were with a judge who was committed to giving us our day in court and to seeing the case tried. And there was motion practice that John and I engaged in against the opposition that put the case in a really good posture for trial. And that's really, once the case was with judge Devlin here in Erie county and we had that successful motion practice, it was the first time over all these many years that we were just about on the courthouse steps. We were just about to have Daniel and his family have their day in court. And that's when the case was able to be resolved. Thankfully. But it was a long journey to be sure. Do you already talked about the appellate victory and how important that was and you alluded to being on the court steps, the case ultimately resolving. And to the extent that you can share, could you tell us what happened? What was the result of the case? Well, there's a lot we can't tell you, but we will say that we resolve the case against the distributor and the manufacturer and we can't go into the financial component of the settlements, but there were also commitments to engage in safer business practices, which were very important to all of us and certainly very important to bud. He did not want this to happen. Someone else and he wanted to have this about more than money and it was. So it was certainly a very good result. You know, it's always, there's always a conflict among the client and the lawyers when you're on the eve of trial. You spent a long time preparing for trial. You're geared up, you know, playing the opening statement in your head and the cross examinations. And this is a case we were prepared to win, but it was a very good result. So really, this was a fairly easy decision to, I think, too. To settle it and have that certainty and just have a very good result for bud. Yeah, John talks about us preparing for trial and having seen John argue multiple appeals in this case and having seen him perform on his feet. For selfish reasons I wanted the case to be tried just to try a case with a great trial lawyer and I know that John and I had put in a lot of work to line up the proof..

"And Selena zino good morning. How are you? Good morning, sunshine. I'm great. How are you? Great, great column. What happened in Pennsylvania? I know what happened in Virginia. It's where I live in the Democrats got blown out big time in New Jersey. A lot of them got blown out and the governor barely survived. What happened in PA? Oh, well, it was fascinating. So I'm going to focus initially first on the race that I covered several times. And that's the one for eerie county executive. The county executive position that's a county wide elected position has only been in existence since the 1970s. Since then, Republican is only one in 20 twice. And as you know and is probably your listeners know eerie county is a very important county in a state wide elected race. It's almost always gone for the Democrats. Don't Trump was the exception in 2016. It went back to Biden, albeit narrowly in 2020 and a Republican one that county wide raise running a very sort of boring race much similar to the youngin on very local issues and you wanted against the candidate who was the transgender school board president who ran on national issues. And they kept the public schools closed in eerie for a very long time. So that was a big problem for the Democrat. Was it close Selena? Or was it a blowout? It was, I don't know what the final numbers were, but it was much broader than anybody. What is even expected if the Republican had won? It was more than Donald Trump won it in 2016.

How Party Leaders Get Ready for the Election in Pivotal Pennsylvania County
"Pennsylvania, a working class area in the northern northwestern most corner of the state. Has long been solid territory for Democrats. Then in 2016, Donald Trump eked out a narrow victory. Now in 2020, the county is again seen as pivotal NPR national political correspondent Don Can you sat down with Republican and Democratic leaders in the county? Jim words. A 41 year old college professor, was named Erie County Democratic Chair two years ago. He wasn't in charge when Trump won here. Still, he's fixated on the numbers just 1967 votes, so a really narrow margin and so for me for the last couple of years, it's been staring at those numbers. There are so many what ifs. What if Hillary Clinton had run a better campaign? What if there had been better turnout in the city of here? But words also gives the trump campaign credit for its use of digital targeting for getting people to make personal contact with friends to find new voters for trump factor in their social media presence in their online presence, and the kind of targeting they did, in some cases with the help of foreign actors and others, it had a very significant psychological role. What says the Democrats goal this year is not to mimic that Trump campaign. It's to build on the enthusiasm Democrats showed in the 2018 midterms and to reach beyond the traditional base. To that end, Erie County Democrats have set up field offices out in rural communities. Words talked as he unloaded boxes of lawn signs from the back of his jeep bed once not jobs.

He acknowledges that Joe Biden with his Pennsylvania roots is a very different candidate than Hillary Clinton. There's no Biden equivalent to the lock her up chant at Trump rallies by.
