City Hallways (Feb. 21) Presidential listing with a fill-in-the-blanks

First 43 presidents, and then . . . 
Just returning to City Hall, which was closed Monday for Presidents' Day, I spotted this presidential display.

Seemed like it was purchased two presidents ago.

The mayor's race

A lot changed in City Hall over the past weekend.

When I left here Friday, we had  Mayor Byron Brown,  in the final year of his third term.

Now, we have: Mayor Byron Brown seeking a fourth term.

Should make for an interesting nine months.

While Brown was announcing his candidacy Monday, and ticking off a list of accomplishments, including efforts on the city's East Side, his critics were quick to strike back.

This from  Erie County Legislator Betty Jean Grant, who took exception to Brown's comment that the city's East Side has gotten a "fair share" from his administration."I almost choked when I heard that.," Grant wrote on her Facebook page. ". . . Insanity is voting the same way 4 times and expecting a different result. Agitate, agitate, agitate!"

The New York State universal health care plan

I just got a press release saying Common Council members later today will be voicing their support for the New York Health Act, which is designed to make health care  accessible and more affordable to all New Yorkers.
