Buffalo Common Council 101 and OUR City Platform

  • 429 Plymouth Avenue Buffalo, NY, 14213 United States (map)

All nine Buffalo Common Council seats are up for re-election in 2019.

A councilmember’s job is to represent the voices of their district, while advocating for the issues they care about. Almost anyone can run for Common Council, but most people don’t know how.

What does it take to run for this office? At this event, you will hear from people who have run for office themselves or have helped others to do so. We will cover the election timeline, how to get public support for your campaign (petitioning), and tips on how to build a leadership team to help run your campaign
