WBFO Brief Oct. 20, 2021

On today’s WBFO Brief, hear a lot of pushback and reaction to state Democratic party chair Jay Jacobs—after he compared the tough choice of possibly endorsing Democratic Mayoral candidate India Walton to what it was like when Ku Klax Klan Wizard David Duke ran for US Senate and other offices. Also a look at a new playground at Ellicott Elementary in Orchard Park- with an emphasis on disabilities.
