Elia pandered to her base in ousting Carl Paladino
The way I see it, MaryEllen Elia’s decision to get rid of Carl Paladino was based solely on solidifying her job by catering to the Buffalo Teachers Federation and the bunch in the School Board who I believe are twice as prejudicial as they say Paladino is.
I could not care less who they vote for to replace him, but it will have to be a puppet who will be willing to go along with whatever they tell him or her. Paladino was right when he said that the whole board should be eliminated, along with Phil Rumore, who it seems always gets what he wants at the expense of the taxpayers, while the kids are learning less with a 40 percent graduation rate.
It’s probably too late, but I would have liked to see him run for mayor.
