WBFO/AM 970 News

Common Council Majority Leader Demone Smith is proposing job applications in the City of Buffalo eliminate any questions regarding criminal records.

The move reflects what many other cities have already undertaken in an effort to put qualified applicants before employers. The move would still allow these questions to be asked during interviews.

Smith's proposal would apply to city government posts, government vendors and many other jobs in the city.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
