Five Erie County legislators are introducing a term limit proposal they hope will be on the ballot for the November election. The lawmakers claim the proposal is in response to the recent rash of unethical behavior amongst public officials in Albany.
A familiar face in local politics will be on national television Tuesday night. Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick and Canisius College political science professor will make an appearance on Comedy's Central The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
Hardwick was contacted by the show's producers based on a comment he made to The Buffalo News recently on how New York's late presidential primary renders it moot in the national political picture. He told The News, “It’s like being next in line for concert tickets when the ticket window closes.”
