Video clips of Common Council candidate interviews

The Buffalo News recently conducted endorsement interviews with Common Council candidates. We have edited 30-minute interviews into short clips to give voters and those living outside the district a glimpse into the candidates' viewpoints on why they should either be re-elected or seated for the first time.

All but one of the candidates, Rochelle A. Ricchiazzi in the University district, who did not respond to numerous requests by The News, is shown.  We also offer our endorsement editorial for more information.  Overall, it is important that voters go to the polls on a primary day that is expected to draw a low turnout.  It would be nice to be proven wrong.
