We are coming.” While Mayor Brown is yet to acknowledge the truth, the local Democratic party has already acknowledged Walton’s likely victory. Walton said she received a congratulatory call on Tuesday from the New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the fellow Democratic socialist.
She secured her victory against Brown, she told her supporters “Today is only the beginning. From the very start. I said this is not about making India Walton Mayor buffalo. This is about building the infrastructure to challenge every damn thing,” When she was asked Tuesday night why does she believed voters chose her after 16 years with Brown, she said, “Though we’ve seen progress in certain areas, the majority of us haven’t enjoyed what’s being called the renaissance,” further said “I think that now is a time when people are standing up and saying that we’re not going to take this lying down. The status quo is not enough and people just want change.” she continued “The entire intent of this campaign is to draw down power and resources to the ground level and the hands of the people” she further added “And when we think about socialism, we’re perfectly fine with socialism for the rich. We will bail out Wall Street and banks and give a billion dollars in tax incentives to one of the richest people in the world (Elon Musk) to build an empty Tesla factory in South Buffalo. And when it comes to providing the resources that working families need to thrive, socialism becomes scary at that point. So I’m very proud to be a Democratic Socialist.”
