I, like Governor Andrew Cuomo, am committed to keeping the Bills in Buffalo for generations to come regardless of who the new owner may be.

As evidence of this commitment, consultants have been retained on behalf of the state and county to prepare options for the consideration of prospective owners that will include (1) a new stadium to be constructed at one or more possible locations and (2) the further renovation or retrofit of Ralph Wilson Stadium beyond the renovations currently being undertaken. At this time, all options should be part of the discussion and nothing should be disregarded.

We look forward to commencing these discussions with an owner who is likewise committed to keeping the team here in its first, and what should be its only, home territory of Buffalo and Erie County.”
