NYC Mayor Insults Buffalo

Buffalo mayor Byron Brown is angry, actually in his words “p….ed” after New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg used Buffalo’s misfortunes to direct attention to his own political accomplishments.  Bloomberg was speaking at a housing conference at New York University when he said, “Our city’s problems are problems of success. We don’t have enough classrooms. We don’t have enough roads. We don’t have enough housing. If you go to other cities, they don’t have those problems. There’s an awful lot of free space up in Buffalo, New York, if you want to go there. I don’t think you do. Buffalo would love to have our problems.”

Maybe we’re a little bit sensitive in Buffalo with all the insults and snide remarks about the weather.  But’s it’s not our fault that the policies of Albany that favor New York City and the state’s high taxes have absolutely decimated heavy industry cities like Buffalo.  Not only wiped out the steel industry locally and a good portion of the auto industry – but took all those jobs, and people, with them.  And now some numbskull in New York City – our own state – kicks us when we’re down?  I’ve never liked Michael Bloomberg.  Of course I don’t know him personally, but he comes off as a wealthy, arrogant, know it all.  But he doesn’t know anything about Buffalo to make such a stupid comment like that.

Buffalo mayor Brown, who happens to be a native of Queens, said “Buffalo’s a great city, with great people, and anytime anyone is saying something negative about this great community and its great people, I get angry.”
