I stopped by city hall around 7PM last night to observe the Buffalo School Board in action. I was unaware that the actual public meeting took place at 5:30. In any event, all my friends were there. Big Daddy Williams,James Kane, Lou Petrucci, Ralph Pornandez. They were all present. I had gone there to watch a possible debate on extending Dr. Williams' contract. Instead, I caught the mundane end of what had to be a very long day for everyone involved.
I also met Erin Comerford at the meeting. She was understandably upset about some of the things I'd written about her. She did point out to me that she was never hired as Stefen Whateverhislastname's assistant. I am writing this now to make that correction. Erin turned out to be very nice. I told her about my frustration with the politics in this area and how I didn't intend for her hiring to become a major story on my blog. I had written one line and it appeared to have set off Jim Comerford (her father) so I took the ball and ran with it. I am not qualified for her job, and I'm sure she is great at it.
I can admit when I'm wrong about something. I should not have brought her name into my daily writings. Erin's sister played soccer in my league and we know many of the same people. There are no plans for me to change the content of my blog. However, I'm glad to have had the opportunity to talk to Erin in person. With that said, my goal is to have 1,000 readers a day come to this site eventually, so everone else there should scrub their laptops, move back into to the city, and pay homage.
