How did Majority Leader Richard A. Fontana's move to replace David A. Franczyk as Buffalo Common Council president start?
"I didn't start that," said Fontana, who added he thought he would have Kearns' support.
That's a version of events Kearns (pictured at left) is denying.
"I said I would like to see new leadership and term limits," Kearns said.
The assertion that he promised to get behind Fontana for president is incorrect, the South Council member said.
"He thought. He assumed," Kearns said of Fontana.
