Buffalo’s poverty rate keeps climbing, yet politicians proclaim the region is booming.
Which is it?
Jim Heaney, editor of Investigative Post, will provide the answer in his “State of the Community” address Wednesday (Feb. 11).
Heaney has culled numerous data points to provide a fact-based assessment of the economy. “I’ll cut through the spin and present a realistic picture of what’s going on in the local economy, for better and for worse,” he said.
Heaney also will discuss the state of Investigative Post as it marks its third anniversary. “We’ve broken some big stories in the past year, grown our audience and broadened out base of support,” he said.
Heaney will be joined by WGRZ new anchors Maryalice Demler and Scott Levin. The evening will conclude with a dialogue with the audience.
The event starts at 7 p.m. at the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site, 641 Delaware Ave.
Admission is $10 and includes an investigative Post membership.
