Region is bearing fruit of Higgins’ hard work

It was most refreshing to read about a prominent Western New Yorker whose value is not measured by the size of his wallet. From day one, Rep. Brian Higgins’ top priority has been to help and serve the people of his district, most of whom like him were raised in working-class families.

He has succeeded at this with humble hard work and tenacity, and one need look no further than our ever-expanding waterfront to see the tangible results of his efforts. It is no surprise that he lives modestly. His focus is where it should be. Bravo, Brian. Your example speaks loudly to those in and out of government.
