Brown Circulating Petitions for Congress

By Eileen Buckley

Buffalo, NY – State Senator Byron Brown says he is circulating petitions for the newly redrawn 28th congressional district. But the Buffalo Democrat says he has not made a final decision on a possible run. Brown says he will make a decision soon.

"We do have petitions out on the street," Brown said. "They are going incredible well. We are getting tremendous encouragement from business leaders and citizens. So we are inching closer to our decision."

Brown says his final decision will be based on making sure the the economic needs of the Buffalo region are met.

Erie County Legislator Charles Swanick is also considering a possible run and circulating petitions, but has not announced his decision.
