The Buffalo News reported that Phyllis Green, former alderman, is attempting to run against Tucker in the Republican Primary:
Phyllis J. Green is making a last-minute effort to run for mayor. The former alderwoman said she didn’t start circulating nominating petitions until Tuesday. Today is the deadline to submit petitions to the Niagara County Board of Elections...Reasons for running:
Green said that in the course of volunteering for other candidates, she has found that residents are unhappy about three major issues. She said, “They didn’t like the [new] assessments. They didn’t like the [new system for collecting] garbage. And they don’t like what happened to Mike Hoffman.”The garbage system is not different than the town's and offers cheaper options. The assessments are required by the state and were non-politically done by a private firm. They are human and made errors but what could a mayor have done different? I don't see Hoffman as a running platform though there are pry some out there that do.
I await to see what the 4 currently in the fold lay out substantial that would show attempts at changes to the slow decline we are on.
