Editorial: Poverty un-plan

As many people already know, the City of Buffalo finally released its poverty plan. The reception: crickets. Disappointment, really, over a long-awaited plan that delivered nothing except a plan to create a task force which will, in all likelihood, produce another plan. Or, at least a report -- on the plan.

Today's lead editorial takes City Hall to task over its artificial document that restates the problem of poverty and re-emphasizes programs already in place. In January, Brown agreed to be interviewed  on a number of topics including a comprehensive poverty plan.  Watch the video of the mayor’s strategy to address poverty here. Perhaps the taskforce will be better able to put together a comprehensive approach to combat decades-long decline.
