Hello my name is Adrian Fitzgerald Harris and I live in Buffalo, NY. I work at a Local high school in school supports, have a Masters Degree in Special Education, have 30 years of experience working with youth and have three children. I’m also a world record mountain climber; becoming the first African American too climb each high point in the lower 48 United States in August of 2013. After prepping my mountaineering skills the past two summers I will now attempt to climb the seven summits; the highest peaks on each of the seven continents, starting in the summer of 2016. I have run twice for the City of Buffalo Public School Board; most recently in May of 2014 I ran for an At-large seat on the City of Buffalo Public School Board, but was unsuccessful. In the two weeks that passed after that election I began to formulate an idea on how I could stay active in the Buffalo Public School system, urban education and also provide valuable information for the voting public. I felt that the voters in the past two school board elections based their vote on name and not issues, which to me was very disconcerting. At the end of this thought process came this blog site you have entered. It is my hope that I will be able to provide constant, factual, independent, information to the public and by next election cycle there will be many well developed highly informed issues based voters. Also I am not aligned with any political party and have had no political affiliation since I registered to vote at the age of 18, so I believe my information will be unbiased and factual. Thank you for reading about me and my mission, please visit and comment often.
