Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul cited Buffalo’s remarkable economic resurgence as a model for how to transform a city into a vibrant, growing urban area as part of her discussion at the Daemen College Distinguished Leaders Lecture Series event held on May 29.
“After facing decades of challenges and neglect, we pulled together and turned Buffalo around to create a city that is prospering and continues to develop,” said Hochul, who was the first top official from the governor’s office to be a featured speaker in the lecture series. “A range of economic development efforts has had a powerful impact that’s generated a new level of excitement and a positive outlook for Buffalo’s future.”
