Every Sunday, we'll publish a quick Q&A with someone from the local political world. Instead of touching on the latest in policy issues and proposed legislation, the intent is to catch a glimpse of the person behind the title. The interviews are done via email.

What's one thing people don't know about you?
I walk, in the early morning, in Martin Luther King park and take pictures of the flowers in flower gardens. I use the pictures as screen savers on my phone.
What's your favorite restaurant?
What is the best part of summer in Buffalo?
I have many favorites! I always go to the Pine Grill Reunion, participate in the Juneteenth. I go to Shakespere in the Park and all of the art festivals.
Who's your political hero?
Hon. Barbara Jordan. She is a former Congresswoman from Texas. She spoke at my graduation from Buffalo State College.
What's the worst part of your job?
The judgement that comes with the word politician. Not all politicians are the same.
