Remembering Mayor Jimmy Griffin

This week’s Throwback Thursday took us back to the the 80’s when Mayor Griffin was in office in downtown Buffalo. Winging It’s Lauren Hall sat down with Steve Cichon from Buffalo Stories to talk about the legacy of this eccentric mayor. Through his 4 terms as mayor, Griffin may have had his political detractors, but he played a large role in the resurgence of downtown Buffalo in the 1980’s. Western New Yorkers will be celebrating Mayor Griffin this Sunday, July 27th with the “Run Jimmy Run Charity 5K”. Registration is still open – to learn more visit
