How Does Your Buffalo Councilmember Rank On Raising Substantive Issues?


An important part of being a leader is taking the initiative to propose ideas. Every two weeks elected members of the Buffalo Common Council have the ability to file a resolution on any topic they want, have it discussed and voted on at a City Council meeting.
