How Does This Guy Keep His Seat?

It seems like every day there is a new story about Ellicott Councilman Brian Davis. He writes one bad check after another. He lies on his resume and claims he graduated from college when it is not true. We now find out he was "managing" the failed One Sunset restaurant. Doesn't a councilman have other things to do besides manage a restaurant? My favorite line during the whole One Sunset fiasco was when Mayor Brown's Deputy Mayor (also named Brown) said she was aware that the restaurant was having some "hiccups". That's has to be the understatement of the century.

I don't understand why there appears to be no outrage among Davis' constituency. This guy is no good. I'm certain there are very good people in his district that would love to take his place and actually serve the public. Someone powerful has to be protecting him or he would have been led to resign some time ago. The whole thing would be funny if it wasn't for the fact that Davis is in a position to make decisions that affect the whole city. Where are the leaders on the East side of Buffalo? Davis needs to step down.

  1. Everything you said is true but we might have to be careful about calling out council members on having time for restaurant interests since our own councilman just bought the old Billy Ogden's. However I have to give Rich credit since, at least as far as we know, he has not only invested his own money and not taxpayer money in this venture nor has he enlisted any overrated high school athletes who never amounted to anything to try and put butts in the seats.

  2. yea Don. that's true. i forgot about his new restaurant. his family did run a successfull restaurant before he was elected. but you are right. as long as it doesn't affect his ability to govern.
