Buffalo – For the 12th consecutive year, Mayor Byron W. Brown today welcomed the children of City of Buffalo employees to City Hall as part of the national “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work” program. Throughout the month of April, millions of youth and young adults are expected to participate in the annual event at workplaces across the country. “I’m always happy to welcome the children of our employees to historic Buffalo City Hall,” said Mayor Brown. “Today’s program not only gives our youth the opportunity to shadow their parents or relatives at work, it exposes girls and boys to what a parent or mentor in their lives does during the work day, while also showing them the value of their education.” While the children were given time to spend with their parents, various activities were also planned throughout the day in Buffalo, including an introduction to the Buffalo Police K-9 unit, SWAT team and Underwater Recovery Team; the opportunity to attend a press conference; a meet and greet with Common Council members and a tour of the Council Chambers; a presentation at Buffalo Fire Headquarters; and a visit to the City Hall Observation Deck. All participants received a certificate of achievement from Mayor Brown and information on Mayor Brown’s summer reading program, called Reading Rules!
