Buffalo, NY – WBFO's Bert Gambini sat down in our studio with Buffalo Schools Superintendent James Williams for a conversation about the city school district.

Williams said the Buffalo District is faced with many challenges, including management of its multi-million dollar budget shortfall.

Williams was under fire a couple of weeks ago for saying he would leave his post if the Governor imposed a salary cap on superintendents pay. Later Williams retracted that statement. Williams contract runs through 2014.
