We're throwing it back this week to an episode we released earlier this year featuring Buffalo's #1 Ambassador, Mayor Tony Masiello. 

Matt talks with Tony about the opportunities and challenges that elected officials face in transforming cities. They discuss what led Tony to develop creative solutions to the difficult economic situation facing Buffalo during the 80s and 90s, much like many other Rust Belt cities at that time. Tony spent 35 years working in government on behalf of Western New York. He is a college Hall of Fame basketball player, drafted by the Indiana Pacers in 1969. Today Tony is the president of Masiello Martucci Calabrese & Associates.
