City bars business group from brownfield site
Opposes approach of reform advocates

Mayor Byron W. Brown's administration barred a business group stumping for statewide reforms from holding a news conference on a city-owned brownfield last week because the administration disagrees with its advocacy approach and claims the plan wasn't cleared with City Hall.

Andrew J. Rudnick, the head of the region's largest business group, claims he was told that the mayor's communications chief didn't want Unshackle Upstate to hold a Thursday news conference "anywhere in the city."

Peter K. Cutler said the administration did block plans by the coalition to stage its event at Buffalo Lakeside Commerce Park but would never have tried to ban the group from meeting in the city.
