When comparing the campaigns of India Walton and current mayor Byron Brown, Poloncarz says he was “disappointed” in the latter’s.

“Ms. Walton ran a fabulous campaign and she talked about the issues that mattered in Buffalo,” Poloncarz said, noting that the Democratic nominee discussed topics like community investment and recent shootings.

“The Mayor acted as if he had already been elected,” Poloncarz said.

This year’s primary election results will not be certified by the county’s Board of Elections for, roughly, another two weeks.
