Collins' silence creating discord in 27th District

In trying to understand the diverse views found across the New York's massive 27th Congressional District, The Batavian is a good place to start.  In 10 years, the website has developed a loyal following of readers who often engage in spirited debate on an array of topics ranging from the philosophical to the parochial. The site has become a must-stop for candidates looking to connect with voters, but the recent silence of embattled Rep. Chris Collins has prompted the Batavian to break from its standard policy. Publisher Howard Owens says they will no longer post Collins' press releases until the congressman agrees to another interview.
