Buffalo PBA accuses Walton campaign of sharing officers’ addresses

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Buffalo Police Benevolent Association (PBA) has accused the campaign of mayoral candidate India Walton of sharing the home addresses of city police officers.

On Saturday morning, the PBA released a statement on Facebook.

“We demand that the Walton campaign immediately disclose their source of city employee home addresses, which has jeopardized the safety of Buffalo Police Officers by releasing their home addresses. For a campaign that purports to be transparent and a candidate that has called herself “an open book”, India Walton and her campaign have lowered themselves to a level of intimidation and reckless disregard for individuals’ personal safety that is beyond contempt. The Walton campaign owes Buffalo voters an explanation now.”

Earlier this month, the PBA endorsed current Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, as he seeks to win an unprecedented fifth term via a write-in campaign.

Walton, Brown and another write-in candidate, Benjamin Carlisle, recently participated in a debate at St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute.
