Republican mayoral candidate Sergio Rodriguez will answer voters' questions at 5 p.m. today on Reddit, a social media platform.
As of 12:40 p.m. today, the forum had 75 comments - many of them substantive - from inquiring minds inside the city and out. They cover a range of topics, including crime, abandoned buildings, neighborhoods and parks.
Rodriguez will face the winner of the Democratic primary between Mayor Byron Brown and Bernie Tolbert, the former head of the FBI's Buffalo office.
Brown has so far outfundraised them all, and has $1.3 million on hand, to Tolbert's $200,000. Rodriguez has just $1,083 on hand, according to campaign finance filings this week.
Tolbert has been attending events and campaigning for months, but recently ramped up his public comments about violence in the city, at an anti-violence summit on Wednesday and in a video on his Facebook page.
