Mayoral Candidates to Debate at Burchfield Penney

Posted: August 15, 2017

The candidates for mayor of Buffalo competing in the September 12 Democratic primary will debate the issues in a forum Thursday, August 17, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Burchfield Penney Art Center’s Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium.

Mayor Bryon W. Brown, city Comptroller Mark J.F. Schroeder, and Erie County Legislator Betty Jean Grant will field questions on critical issues ranging from education to economic development to workforce diversity and making sure all segments of the city share in Buffalo's growth.

The debate will be moderated by Al Vaughters of WIVB-TV, with questions posed by members of the Buffalo Association of Black Journalists. Audience members also will submit written questions that will be posed by the panel of journalists.

This free event is sponsored by the Buffalo Association Black Journalists in cooperation with the Burchfield Penney Art Center and the Communication Department.
