Byron Brown, India Walton and Jaz Miles Will Face Off in Mayoral Debate September 9

During the Democratic Mayoral Primary, Byron Brown refused to debate candidate India Walton, smugly chiding what he called her “lack of understanding of the role as mayor.”  Accepting her challenge to debate he told the News, would be to “ ignore his responsibility to run New York’s  second largest city.”  In other words, he had better things to do.

What a difference an election  makes. 

Two months after losing to Walton – who won a  stunning Primary upset  victory – Brown who  barely even campaigned –    has now found the time to debate.

On Thursday, September 9,  India Walton, the  Democratic nominee for Mayor, will face  Brown and Jaz Miles, both write-in candidates, in an event hosted by the Buffalo Association of Black Journalists and WUFO Radio Power 96.5 on Sept. 9 at the Merriweather Library on Jefferson Avenue  at 7 p.m.   

Walton will be the only candidate on the ballot on Nov. 2. Neither the Republican Party nor any other party is running a candidate.          

The event is free, but space is limited. 

The debate will also be aired live on WUFO Radio and WIVB-TV channel 4
