Buffalo- The three men in the running to be the next mayor of Buffalo sat down again to discuss issues in the city.

This time incumbent, Mayor Byron Brown set the record straight when it comes the to numbers his two opponents claim reflect a poor administration.

Brown says overall since 200 crime has decreased in the city by about 20%-- despite Sergio Rodriguez's claims that homicide has increased in the last year in the city by 40%

Bernie Tolbert has also pointed out that the FBI named Buffalo as the 11th most dangerous city in the US, but the FBI's website clearly states that the information used to establish the statistics was gathered by law enforcement agencies who voluntarily participated in the study and that they shouldn't necessarily be used to compare cities.

Rodriguez and Tolbert believe they have the leadership that make them better than Brown, however Brown says he continues to work hard to make progress in the city everyday.
