Buffalo has some big new backers
New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo made an unprecedented $1 billion commitment to Buffalo in his annual State of the State address on January 4, saying: “Buffalo has the workforce, the talent, the resources, and the will to succeed. We believe in Buffalo. And we’ll put our money where our mouth is.”
Enclosed is a great article by Bruce Katz, Director of the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institute in Washington, outlining the unique economic strengths of the Buffalo metro area and how he envisions the city booming again.
