The Buffalo Common Council is the legislative body for the City of Buffalo. The council consists of 9 members representing each of the nine Common Council Districts and also includes the Mayor of Buffalo. The council has undergone considerable change due to redistricting based on census population declines.

"The President, President Pro-Tempore, and Majority and Minority Leaders of the Common Council, are selected by and from the Common Council members to serve in a Leadership position for a two (2) year period."

"All current Common Council Members were elected to a term of office beginning January 1, 2008 and ending December 31, 2011."
