April 23, 1975: East Side residents lament city hall's 'do-nothing dummies'

Forty years ago, angry residents of Buffalo’s East Side called those in city hall a “bunch of do-nothing dummies.”

"East Side residents blame 'do-nothing dummies' in city hall for lagging development"

" 'Makowski hasn’t done a thing for the East Side that elected him,' said one man in a crowd of about 50 at Transfiguration Church Hall.

" 'And Richard F. Okoniewski (Fillmore District Councilman) is a dummy; they’re all a bunch of dummies,' chimed in another disgruntled spectator."
