Fog hangs over tourism spending

From the Buffalo News:

The control of millions of dollars of public money used to market and promote Niagara Falls and Niagara County is in the hands of 17 people.

They choose how casino revenue and hotel taxes should be used to promote tourism in the county. They determine the salaries of staff hired with those dollars. They oversee when and where those staff members travel on the public dime.

But out of 17 directors who oversee the Niagara Tourism and Convention Corp., only three represent people elected by the public.
