I’m Alan Bedenko. I’m a lawyer by trade, and I’ve lived in western New York since September 2001. I grew up in downstate New York and attended college in Boston, and lived in Massachusetts for some time after that.
I’ve been blogging since September 2003. It started with a local effort to elect General (Ret.) Wesley Clark President in 2004. In late 2004 and early 2005, talk of developing Buffalo’s Outer Harbor and the Erie County “red-green” budget crisis caused my blogging to be redirected towards mostly regional WNY political, economic, and social issues.
