***PSA***
For the affected residents of Buffalo 1/23/2020:

Before using your water today, run all your faucets for about 2mins to clear them out due to a 36" transmission main that broke at Main and Jefferson. The leak was isolated shortly after midnight and water pressure should have returned to normal for the affected areas.

Crews will be fixing the break and restoring the roadway for the next few days which will impact traffic at Main and Jefferson.

Please share. Thanks!

Council Member Wingo's comments on School Zone Cameras - 1/21/2020

Councilmember Wingo takes exception to the notion that school zone cameras that are intended to make school zones safer are an exploitation, or a money-grab, targeting impoverished communities. Listen to his comments here on a resolution drafted by one of his colleagues.

Hi Ulysees, I am so proud of you and all that you do to help others and win souls to Christ! Uncle Jerry and I had the pleasure of cruising with a young couple from your district, Rhonda and her husband! (She says she calls your office often and you are always wonderful and helpful) We were on a bus sight seeing one day of the cruise, and she mentioned she was from Buffalo and as a proud aunt and sister I said "I have family in Buffalo, as a matter of fact, we were there recently for one of my nephews who was recently installed as the new Pastor of Antioch Baptist Church and she said "Is he a councilman as well and is his name Wingo?" Well that was all aunt Nunny needed to go on and on about my AWESOME , talented, smart and blessed nieces and nephews! She said she understood why you were so nice and sweet because you must be like your aunt! She asked me to tell you about our meeting, I just did! LOL Always stay the wonderful, kind, considerate, compassionate, GOD FEARING, honorable, intelligent, and HANDSOME young man you are! I AM ONE PROUD AUNT, LOVE YOU, AUNT NUNNY
Help redirect the direction of gentrification: Share, Post, and Vote on September 12th......
Message from Alberto O. Cappas: While I favored Mark J F Schroeder in the beginning, and forwarded that message to several of my FB friends, I've come to believe that Betty Jean Grant is the best fit for the Puerto Rican/Latino community, as well as for the city as a whole. I've experienced the political fear and control that Mayor Brown has in the city, and my community is no exception, too much money to buy people and votes. In September's primary, free yourself, stand on moral grounds, and give Betty Jean Grant your vote. Let us bring a real change to the Puerto Rican /Latino community.

*Share or re-post* The merit badge counselor is one of the coolest jobs in Scouting! You would be a key player in the Boy Scout advancement program. Seriously. You introduce & help Scouts explore a topic about which you are passionate and knowledgable about---on your own time. There are so many things Scouts can learn about. Scouts can learn about sports, crafts, science, trades, business, and future careers as you you assist them in earning their merit badges. With more than 130 merit badges, there is tons of learning to expose Boy Scouts to, and Boy Scouts may earn any of these at any time before the age of 18. Think about it like this; At the very least, a merit badge counselor helps a young man earn a merit badge for his sash and get one step closer to the next rank. At the most, as a merit badge counselor, you have introduced a young man to a subject that could potentially become a lifelong hobby or career. Find out how you can help and take the first step today! (Merit badge list in first comment). True Bethel Boy Scout Troop #907
