Council Punts on Derenda

14 Jul


And in the end, the Buffalo Common Council punted on Daniel Derenda’s bid to become Police Commissioner. The Legislation Committee voted 4-2 to hold the issue until such time as they can inquire of the absent city HR director regarding the supposed, too-little-too-late “national search”.

As with many things in Buffalo City Government, a skeptical council faces off against an obstinate executive office and instead of something good or something bad happening, nothing happens.

As an aside, Councilman Joe Golombek, who is running against Sam Hoyt for State Assembly, is currently allied with the Mayor and voted in favor of the Derenda nomination whilst making concern-trolling mouth-noises to maintain a Saran-wrap-like sheen of “independence”.
