The Emptiest of Suits
I'm shocked The Empty Suit doesn't have anything to say about the most important issue facing Buffalo today. It's schools. The only time you will ever see him is at a photo op or naming a street after someone. Complete waste of an expensive suit...
Although the mayor was too busy to talk about public education during the past three weeks, he did find time to talk with Buffalo News reporters about at least nine other issues. Among them: a city crossing guard’s 60 years of service, the arrest of a shooting suspect, the prospects of a downtown casino, and the increase in business this summer at a waterfront restaurant.
Brown also had time in the past three weeks to participate in several photo ops, including attending the kickoff of Hispanic Heritage Month, standing next to the lieutenant governor at a news conference announcing new trails along Lake Erie, and appearing at a ribbon-cutting at the University at Buffalo.
Would you expect anything less?You get what you pay for. Empty Suit will be our mayor as long as he wants to be. The guy never goes out on a limb or takes a stand on anything. Apparently, that's the type of "leader" the people of Buffalo want. Meanwhile, young people continue to leave the city in search of actual jobs...
Mayor keeps distance from city’s troubled schools*
A man walks down the street,
He says, Why am I soft in the middle now?
Why am I soft in the middle?
The rest of my life is so hard!
I need a photo-opportunity,
I want a shot at redemption!
Don't want to end up a cartoon,
In a cartoon graveyard .....
