From the Buffalo news story- Proposal: A new 'regional city'
With one chief executive elected countywide, the regional city would take on City Hall's functions and its approximately 2,700 workers, protecting their seniority without being bound by labor contracts negotiated with the former city government.
The commission's plan attempts to address that issue by expanding the Legislature from 15 to perhaps as many as 27 members, with roughly nine from Buffalo since the city makes up about 30 percent of the county population.
Buffalo is in THE KNOW!
