Another no-show job in Brown administration

Mayor Brown says the city is too broke to support new playing fields in South Buffalo. We need to do more, with less, he says. I guess that doesn't include hiring Channel 4's Mylous Hairston as his new "spokesperson" at $91,000/yr. The fact that the mayor of Buffalo, Amherst's largest suburb, even needs a spokesperson is outrageous in itself. The population of Buffalo is at an all time low. If it wasn't for the Africans and Burmese coming in off the boats, we'd have tumbleweeds blowing around in most city neighborhoods. Here's an idea Mayor Brown: How about being your own spokesperson? It won't be too hard, given the fact that you never say anything anyway. From The Buffalo News...

A former television reporter and anchor has had preliminary talks with Buffalo’s mayor about becoming City Hall’s chief spokesman.

Mayor Byron W. Brown confirmed Monday that his administration has talked with Mylous Hairston about the possibility of replacing communications chief Peter K. Cutler, who left two weeks ago to pursue job opportunities in Albany.

Hairston stunned co-workers at WIVB-TV on Thursday when he abruptly ended a 20- year career at the station.

Brown stressed that no final decisions have been made about filling the high-profile city job, nor would he speculate on when a final decision will be made. But he confirmed that his administration has talked to Hairston about working for the city.
