BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — One of Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown’s democratic challengers got a big endorsement Monday.

According to her campaign manager, the Buffalo Teachers Federation will be endorsing India Walton, backing the 38-year-old with its more than 3,000 members.

“She’s able to learn things quickly; she’s able to use her ability to build community and get experts in the field on her team and consult with them to move things forward,” said  Eve Shippens, a city teacher who is field director for the Walton campaign.

Mayor Byron Brown has been the incumbent for 15 years. He is also challenged by Le’Candice Durham, a complaint clerk for the city.
