Terrence Robinson announced Saturday his intention to run on the Green Party line for Buffalo mayor.
Robinson made his announcement on Earth Day 2017, which also was the one year anniversary of the Paris Agreement and the 47th anniversary of the first Earth Day in 1970.
Robinson is a founding member of Preservation Buffalo Niagara and a present member of the Buffalo Preservation Board.
"The city's heritage and future destiny are inextricably intertwined," he said.
Robinson defined his political agenda as “neo-progressive.”
He outlined his priorities as: transparent government, environmental awareness and sound stewardship, fair access to opportunities for education, employment, and investment for every resident and neighborhood in the City of Buffalo.
Robinson said he has strong support among local Green Party leadership.
He made his announcement on Facebook.
"This announcement is purposefully placed on this social media platform, in a manner that is consistent with our philosophy of organic growth and development," he stated.
