Brown, Rodriguez scheduled to appear together

By Jill Terreri 

Mayor Byron Brown and his Republican challenger, Sergio Rodriguez, have not scheduled any one-on-one debates before the general election.

But the candidates are scheduled to appear together tonight, according to a release from the Rodriguez campaign. (Rodriguez wants to debate, Brown does not.)   

The Judges Row Block Club is scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. at St. Michael's Church, 81 Burke Drive, near the Kensington and Eggert intersection. 

It could be the only time the two remaining mayoral candidates are in the same room before the Nov. 5 election. 

In other headlines today, promotions of Buffalo firefighters happened after the city's Human Resources commissioner and the comptroller raised concerns about whether paying employees who were working outside of their job class for months on end was a violation of state civil service law. 

The Trico building may have new life as an extended-stay hotel, reports Jonathan Epstein. The potential developer, Krog Corp., meets with the Buffalo Urban Development Corp. today at noon. 

Rep. Brian Higgins warned of major cuts to arts and cultural groups that could result from passage of a House appropriations bill, reports Mark Sommer. 

Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker was in town last night and delivered "a fast-paced, humor-filled speech" to the Jewish Federation of Greater Buffalo, reports Dale Anderson.

And Bob McCarthy reports on a debate between County Executive Mark Poloncarz and County Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw on child protection jobs, with Mychajliw preferring to fill vacant positions, and Poloncarz's spokesman saying Mychajliw doesn't understand the situation.
