Scanlon Appointed South-District Councilman | News
BUFFALO, NY - The Buffalo Common Council has a new member. Christopher Patrick Scanlon was chosen by the Common Council Wednesday morning to represent Buffalo's South District.
The seat had been vacant since Mickey Kearns left to take a position in the state Assembly.
Scanlon said, "I am excited to get to work and help the people of South Buffalo the best way I can."
Council President and Lovejoy District Council Member Richard A. Fontana said, "With today's vote, the Council injected new energy and life into the body with the appointment of Christopher Scanlon, a young homeowner from South Buffalo. As Council President, I will work with the new Council Member and see to it that he has all the tools necessary to fully represent the residents of the South District and the City of Buffalo."
The 30-year-old and his wife are homeowners in South Buffalo and plan to raise a family there. His parents have been very active in the community and Scanlon says he is excited to be following in their footsteps.
