BATAVIA – An anti-Cuomo sign made a brief appearance Wednesday, blocking the view of a downtown war memorial by an unknown critic of the governor. The sign read: “CUOMO, NO MORE EMPTY PROMISES ON FAIR ELECTIONS.” On the side was “99.13%.”

The banner was adjacent to the historic Genesee County Court House and in front of a memorial topped by a statue of a Batavian, Civil War Union Gen. Emory Upton.
