The economic news continues to be promising for Buffalo. According to Jim Fink of Business First, three ventures will bring 1,300 jobs to downtown. The job surge can be credited to M&T Bank's development of a high-tech hub, the new office of London Stock Exchange and the downtown relocation of Canon Design. "Plus, there's been a smattering of (other) companies hiring," Fink said during his monthly appearance on WBFO's Press Pass.
