Letter: Buffalo Should Find Out What Socialism Is Doing To Cities | Letters
In 1968, I voted for the first time by pulling the lever for Hubert Humphrey to become President of the United States. Originally from Chicago, I have always been aware of the Democratic machine of the late Mayor Richard J. Daley (vote early and vote often). That is why I am perplexed by the situation in the city of Buffalo. I believe it is generally believed that Byron Brown, the incumbent, thought he had the primary in the bag and just took the campaign to buy more ties. India Walton, the democratic socialist backed by Bernie Sanders and her group of America is Evil followers, has worked hard. Sanders never advertises the locals he supports, because if that were found out, most people would run away from his candidate and look for someone who truly loves the country they reside in. What it does, however, is flood the region with workers, resulting in their exit from the vote, meager as it is, with a low turnout. It was the difference.
My question is, wouldn’t the Democratic Party, which supported Brown, know that this was happening on the streets of Buffalo? If not… why not? Party leader Jeremy Zellner should have been listening and realizing. Isn’t that his job? Going back to my Chicago roots, then I ask, how does this guy still serve as party leader? What is he paid for? After his performance as party president in this last primary, he should follow the elephants of the zoo with a shovel in his hand, not yet employed.
