Fillmore District Council Member Mitch Nowakowski

Today I was proud to introduce legislation with my colleague Niagara District Council Member David A. Rivera to combat lead poisoning in The City of Buffalo.

These ordinance amendments aim to strengthen public health in our communities, especially in Broadway-Fillmore which has a high rate of lead paint in their homes.

I look forward to these items being discussed in the Common Council Committee on Legislation on November 17th via Zoom. Please refer to the press release below and link to the November 10th Council agenda for more information!

Thanks you for the hard work Councilmember Mitch Nowakowski

The City of Buffalo has a lead problem, and we're going to do something about it.

Two of three the zip codes most affected by lead poisoning are in the Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood. The legislation that we introduced to the Common Council today will help our neighborhoods in becoming healthy and sustainable environments for children and families that call them home.

I look forward to discussing these important issues during the Committee on Legislation on Tuesday (11/17) at 1pm and can be watched live on the Common Council page www.facebook.com/bflocc

Jackson State University Student Invents Straw That Filters Drinking Water

This is the game changer!

Jackson State University Student Creates Straw That Filters Lead

"Take the responsibility of clean water directly out of the government, state and city officials hands and put it in the hands of the consumers,” said Cleanstraww creator LaMonté Pierce.

Lamonte Pierce, a 36-year-old graduate student at Jackson State, invented the “Cleanstraww,” a reusable straw that is actually a water filtration system.
