Press Pass: New 144th Assembly leader

By Chris Jamele


Buffalo, NY – The political atmosphere is heating up across the region as voters decided a series of primary battles last week, and one vacated seats were filled through special elections.

WBFO's Chris Jamele visited with ArtVoice editor Geoff Kelly to discuss the evolving electoral climate as part of our Press Pass feature, our weekly conversations with members of Buffalo's print media.

The ease of Sean Ryan's win in the race for the 144th Assembly seat appeared to follow expectations by Democrats, but Kelly suggests that good things could come from this result.
