Paladino assails school board's "secret" process
Former gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino wants to stall the appointment of Pamela Brown as Buffalo schools superintendent.
Paladino is due in State Supreme Court tomorrow in his fight to open up the closed-door executive sessions used to select the new superintendent.
The board is still holding closed meetings to talk about details of the proposed pact, with lawyers from both sides bargaining the contract under which Brown would work, from pay to evaluation provisions.
The school board is slated to approve Brown's contract at a late-afternoon meeting tomorrow.
Paladino is seeking an injunction against the approval.
"Pamela Brown may well be an acceptable person to be the superintendent of schools in Buffalo," Paladino offered.
"But it's the process that they went about, the process that they followed that was defective. You cannot continue to do these things in secret. What do you think is going on?"
Paladino says the public should have more choice in selecting the head for what he says is a dysfunctional school system, with terrible academic results.
