Audio: Choolokian on Hamister deal: 'We're not killing the project'

City Council Chairman Glenn A. Choolokian spoke with reporters on Wednesday about why he says lawmakers aren't allowing a $25 million downtown development project to move forward.

One of the things Choolokian asserted was that the identities of the other bidders for the parcel have yet to be disclosed.

But that's simply not the case.

The other bidders were listed in public documents distributed July 8 at a USA Niagara Development meeting in their Niagara Falls offices, a meeting no Council members attended. (Information that was written about here.)

Listen to Choolokian respond to questions about that and other issues in this 5 1/2-minute audio clip:
