I’m a Buffalo centrist. I don’t buy into the negativity that Buffalo is a dump, there’s nothing to do, and no good will ever come of it. I also don’t buy the hype that Buffalo is a major city that has everything you could want. I’ve been to major cities and many of them have a lot of things that I really wish we had in Buffalo.
So, I constantly compare Buffalo to other cities. It’s not an aspiration, Buffalo will never be any city other than the one it is, and we are unique. It’s a baseline. I am always grateful and proud, and never satisfied with the status quo. I think the summary of Buffalo at the end of the 21st century is entirely dependent on the will of its people to hold it to excellence. We have an opportunity to push Buffalo to a level of greatness far beyond what she’s at now. So while I’m young and able…I’m pushing.
Push it. Push it real good.
