Rodriguez to leave Brown administration

February 3, 2012

The acting  corporation counsel  David Rodriguez is leaving the Brown administration in March for a position  at the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority.
Members of the Brown administration indicated in the media he had asked to go to the position at BMHA. He had been previously rejected as the   corporation attorney for the City of Buffalo by the Buffalo Common Council because he attempted to challenge Councilman David Rivera for a committee member position.
His departure leaves the Brown administration  devoid of any Puerto Ricans in top policy positions.
This  lack of a Puerto Rican presence in  the Brown administration has troubled many in the Puerto Rican community. No Latinos were appointed  in the Brown administration beyond the positions of  only directors.
This is going to be a problem for  Brown if he seeks a third term. His only top level appointment was when he appointed  Betty Calvo Torres to a vacancy in City Court.
