Community activist Judith Einach, endorsed by the Green Party, launched her mayoral campaign Saturday by promising more attention to "fixing the little things so the big things can fix themselves."
"To build a strong economy we need to include creative or less-tried but proven methods to generate wealth," she said.
Einach, 57, is project director of Food Ventures, a micro-enterprise development program.
She spoke to about two dozen supporters outside city-owned historic row houses at 147-153 Woodlawn Ave., near Masten Avenue, that are in disrepair.
"We should expect city government to act as a steward and care for our properties until they are sold to a responsible buyer," she said.
If elected, she promised:
To better spend the millions in aid from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development revitalizing neighborhoods and housing stock.
To oppose locating a gambling casino in Buffalo.
Parks and eco-tourism projects for the Outer Harbor.
