I see Judy Einach's running for Common Council in my district (Niagara).
The retiring Council member [Bonifacio] endorsed Peter Savage Jr., an assistant corporation counsel favored by Brown. The Hoyt candidate is Buffalo Police Officer David Rivera, while Judith Einach, a community activist who unsuccessfully ran an independent campaign for mayor in 2005, also has entered the race.
Let's see, Brown's endorsed a government-insider lawyer. I think we've got enough of those in City Hall. Hoyt's mini-machine is supporting a Buffalo Police Office. Now, I have deep respect for the police, but I'm not terribly keen on city employees serving in government which is, after all, their employer. Right at the moment I'd have to say that Einach sounds pretty good.
Of course, if there's a Republican in the district who decides to run I'll have to consider that as well. I do know that it won't be me -- but I can't say for sure what plans the other two have.
[UPDATE:] I don't mean to intimate that Ms. Einach is a good candidate only because the others aren't, the campaign hasn't started yet and therefore no one's really put forward any ideas. I was able to meet her during the mayoral campaign and was impressed. Judy and the Common Council might be a very good fit.
