FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 14, 2020
[NEWSTEAD, New York] – I believe our Veterans deserve the utmost respect and gratitude for their service to our country. Therefore, once elected, I will propose a partnership between the town and our local businesses to create exclusive parking spots for the Veterans of this community.
These premiere parking spots would be a way of saying “Thank You for Your Service” on a daily basis and in a visible manner. It would be an active show of appreciation for those who served our communities.
Burg adds his voice to Congressmen supporting increased funding for USPS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 25, 2020
[Newstead, New York] – Americans across the political spectrum are deeply concerned that despite a pandemic and increased demand for by-mail voting, the USPS may be denied the resources necessary to guarantee timely delivery of ballots.
Stated simply, that can’t happen.
In a year of maximum partisan divide, Democratic Representative Brian Higgins was joined by Republican Congressman Tom Reed in support of a bill increasing USPS funding by $25 billion.
I add my voice to theirs and all those who understand that the post office is fundamental to our democracy.
Win or lose on November 3, I want to know that no voter was left behind.
NEWSTEAD, New York – I believe the rhetoric around 5G is taking attention away from the vital issues facing our community. However, understanding there are real concerns regarding an upgrade to a 5G wireless network, I consulted a gentleman with a Master’s Degree in electrical engineering.
He assured me that 5G is within the safe microwave/radio section of the spectrum at 30 Gigahertz (Ghz). In comparison, the cancer causing frequency of extreme ultraviolet is 300 Petahertz (PHz). That’s Petahertz. One Petahertz is one million times stronger than One Gigahertz.
5G is safe. Furthermore, with the new network infrastructure, some areas of Newstead will have much-needed, greater access to high speed internet.
The Erie County Democratic Executive Committee has nominated Newstead Zoning Board of Appeals member Adam Burg for Newstead Town Board in this November’s general election.
Burg, who has served on the Zoning Board for 10 years, is a life-long Newstead resident, vice president of the town’s historical society, and former president of the Akron Lion’s Club. His grandfather, Douglas Burg, served as council member from 1962 to 1981 and town supervisor from 1981 to 1983. “This is a great honor and another chance to give back to a town that has given so much to my family and me,” Burg said. “On the zoning board I’ve had the opportunity to shape Newstead’s future, and this takes that opportunity to the next level. I’m grateful to the executive committee for its support, and to ECDC Chair Jeremy Zellner and Newstead Chair Justin Rooney for their great encouragement.” “I grew up with Adam, and I know his roots in Newstead are as deep as his committment to its success,” town committee Chair Rooney said. “He’s demonstrated his devotion to public service on the zoning board, and he’ll continue a true family tradition when he joins the town council in January.” “Adam is the ideal candidate – someone who knows his community and understands the needs and challenges of its people and taxpayers,” ECDC Chair Zellner said. “Our committee’s goal is to provide the very best leadership at every level of government in Erie County, and we have that in Adam Burg.” Burg and his wife, Heather, have a two-year-old daughter, Blair. He is a licensed insurance agent with the Fred E. Thomas Agency and a real estate salesperson with Hunt Real Estate.
