Le’Candice Durham Kicks Off Campaign  for City of Buffalo Mayor

Pledging to “strengthen the relationship between the government and the people we serve,“ LeCandice Durham recently kicked off  her candidacy for Mayor of the City of Buffalo from her Clinton street headqarters.

Described as a demonstrated servant leader,  a community activist, and a dedicated neighbor, Mrs. Durham is the  owner of Candi Eyez, a fashion glasses and accessories business. She serves as  president of Poppy Kidz Klub, a nonprofit organization started after her young niece was struck and killed by a vehicle on Fernhill Avenue. 

Like many, she does not believe political experience is a prerequisite for excellent governmental leadership. She previously worked in City Hall

“Committed and impactful change starts with caring for your neighbor,” she said.

Durham was born and raised with five siblings in Buffalo, on the city’s Eastside. She credits great role models with teaching her the importance of taking care of her community. 

Le’Candice Durham and her husband Larry reside in Riverside with their 6 children. Durham is the block club leader on her street where she resides and is very active in serving the community and Buffalo Homeless.

“The time for neighbors to be united is now. I believe I am the leader Buffalo needs. I pledge to be the people’s mayor.”
