Legendary Buffalo developer and New York State Conservative firebrand, Carl Paladino delivered the keynote address, on the occasion of the 141st Anniversary Lincoln Dinner. He addressed a jam packed ballroom at Antun’s of Queens Village calling for the second American Revolution.
Carl Paladino is a risk-taker, unafraid to pioneer strategic retail developments in the most economically depressed areas of Buffalo, Syracuse, and Albany. As Chairman of Ellicott Development Company, which he founded in 1973, and a life-long advocate of the City of Buffalo, Paladino is best known for championing strategic ideas and has brought new life to the city and region. In the political arena, he pulled off an upset victory in 2010 winning the Republican nomination for New York State governor, and although he didn’t beat Cuomo, he is poised to run again for governor, which he mentioned in a recent interview with Neil Cavuto on the Fox Business Network.
