Vote for iPost’s top story of 2022
Update: Voting is closed.
With apologies to David Letterman, here’s our list – in no particular order – of the Top 10 stories we produced in 2022.
Geoff Kelly, our senior reporter, produced three of them:
- Roswell Park’s connection to a Russian oligarch.
- Retired supervisors testify in a federal lawsuit that Buffalo police often use the N word. Link
- Black officers in another lawsuit contend a police captain went on a racist rant. Link
J. Dale Shoemaker, who joined the staff this summer, reported on the huge subsidies Amazon received to locate a warehouse in Niagara County and Erie County’s intent to break with past practices and exempt the new Buffalo Bills stadium from undergoing a full-blown environmental impact study.
Jim Heaney produced two reported “Outrages & Insights” columns that detailed the rise of the radical right in Western New York and segregation in the City of Buffalo.
I’Jaz Ja’ciel’s first investigation for us was a doozy: Buffalo’s sky-high evictions of low-income renters.
Finally, here’s two stories from reporters who left us this summer:
- Layne Dowdall’s report on Buffalo cutting down twice as many trees as it plants, with particularly devastating impact on the East Side.
- Mark Scheer’s report on the hidden cost to taxpayers of hosting the Bills at Highmark Stadium.
