How to become a Councilman- by Paddy Burke

Nobody likes when local political races get ugly-except me, of course. In his latest cartoon, Paddy Burke comes after Christopher Scanlon's qualifications and insinuates that he's a partier.

Too bad the three independent candidates couldn't come to a compromise. I've seen it a million times. 40% of South Buffalo voters are political opportunists, who rely on contributions for their jobs. They like nothing more than to preserve the status quo (see Lou Petrucci, PJ McParlane, George Gould, Rick Finnegan, John Scanlon, Ray McGurn, Rick Kolbis, Barbara Hart, etc.) Unfortunately, with three opposition candidates likely splitting the vote, the road has been paved for the anointment of Christopher Scanlon.

Burke points out in his latest cartoon what most people already know: Christopher Scanlon was given the job of Councilman because of his father's contributions. Everyone knows he was chosen due to his willingness to do Byron Brown's bidding...
