BUFFALO, N.Y. — ​Incumbent Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown will not appeal last week’s appellate court ruling and will instead continue to focus on his write-in campaign.

That means Brown will not be on the ballot in the Buffalo mayoral race.

Democratic primary winner India Walton is the only name that will appear.

Appeals courts at the state and federal level reversed lower court decisions that would have put Brown’s name on the ballot as well.

"We are not going to appeal the appellate court ruling, we could, but military ballots have already gone out, we don't want to interrupt that process," Brown said.

Election Day is November 2.
