Rotary award proves good timing for Brown

  By Robert J. McCarthy

   Some days it's good to be an incumbent when running for re-election as mayor of Buffalo.
   Mayor Byron W. Brown, facing a challenge from former FBI agent Bernard Tolbert, receives a major award from the Buffalo Rotary Club today in a bit of good timing just 12 days before the Democratic primary.
   Brown will be recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow at a special meeting of the club dedicated to Rotary youth programs on Templeton Landing Restaurant. Brown is being recognized for working toward Rotary’s shared goal of educating and providing jobs for youth in the City of Buffalo.
    “In becoming a Paul Harris Fellow, Mayor Brown joins a remarkable company of persons throughout the world, all recognized for their devotion to the ideal of goodwill, peace and understanding,” said Rotary Club of Buffalo President Jim Tyrpak. “It is the goal of Rotarians the world over, and one Mayor Brown clearly shares.”
