Shave or not? Bearded mayor will make call today

To shave or not to shave? That is the question as Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati prepares for his annual State of the City address today.

Diodati says he will decide this morning whether or not to shave off his beard.

He says he will look at comments on social media, and let residents decide if the beard stays or goes.

The Mayor delivers his address to a sold out crowd at the Americana Resort starting at noon.

Diodati says the speech the mayor will focus on the future of his city including creating a more connected community.

The address will be livestreamed starting at 11:30.
