Buffalo, N.Y., June 30, 2016 – City & State Reports, the only media company devoted solely to covering government and politics in New York, has recently honored Paul Tyno, Strategic Advisor for Energy on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, Inc., with the Corporate Social Responsibility Award in Tech, Energy and Utilities.
