Cynthia Nixon visits Paula's Donuts, Anchor Bar and Marches in Pride during  Buffalo campaign stop

Cynthia Nixon met with grassroots and community leaders Wednesday for an economic development roundtable at The 9th Ward on Delaware Avenue and March in Buffalo Pride Sunday.

Her campaign stop was originally scheduled at the Agustin Olivencia Community Center, however, staff members told her that the center does not host political events, causing campaign organizers to quickly scramble for a different location.

Nixon, an activist and actress, launched her campaign for governor in March. She has often criticized Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's economic development policies. On Wednesday, she said Cuomo's policies only benefit those who contribute to him and have not reach the minority communities. She also said there is very little oversight and job creation.

Things she has heard in Buffalo are similar to what Nixon have heard from visits in Syracuse and Rochester. She said the top down economic development approach just doesn't work.

"It just doesn't work for the members of the community that need it most, particularly communities of color," Nixon said. "They know that all this economic development money is being spent here but they're just not feeling it. We need to stop giving tax breaks to corporations and millionaires and billionaires."

During her first trip to Buffalo as a candidate for governor, Nixon also visited famous local joints. She, along with Jim Anderson of Peace Action New York State, stopped by the Anchor Bar. She also showed off a box of Paula's Donuts on Twitter.

In New York City the Mayor and African American leaders have thrown their support for Nixon
