Griffin Plots Recall

Buffalo, NY – Former Buffalo mayor James Griffin is preparing to announce details on Wednesday of his campaign to recall incumbent Mayor Anthony Masiello.

Griffin is expected to begin circulating petitions this week.

Masiello tells the News that the recall effort is a collaborative effort among Griffin, Council President James Pitts, and Erie County Democratic Chairman Steven Pigeon.

Pitts and Griffin each deny speaking to each other about the recall.

Pigeon said he is not part of the recall effort either, although he did speak with Griffin about it.
