I moved from East Aurora to South Buffalo in June 2015 – June 17, to be exact. [You’ll understand the reason for such specificity as you read this posting.]
I half-jokingly told my friends at the time that the primary motivation for my landing in South Buffalo was so that I could run against Carl P. Paladino for the Park District seat on the City of Buffalo’s Board of Education. I was sick and tired of his bullying, vitriol, and conflicts-of-interest. In reality, it was the prices of homes in the Queen City’s trendier neighborhoods, and a desire to live as close as possible to my teenage son in East Aurora, that led me to my humble-but-charming century-old home several blocks from Cazenovia Park.
