Vanessa Glushefski, the City of Buffalo's acting comptroller, will announce today that she is formally seeking the appointment as interim comptroller.
Glushefski, a certified public accountant and attorney, has served as deputy commissioner since Jan. 1 after Mark J.F. Schroeder appointed her to the position.
Schroeder – a former Erie County legislator and Assembly member who was Buffalo's comptroller since January 2012 – resigned over the weekend to start a job as commissioner of the state Department of Motor Vehicles today.
Glushefski was slated to make her announcement during a 2:30 p.m. news conference on the steps of City Hall.
The Buffalo Common Council will have 90 days to appoint an interim comptroller to serve through the end of Schroeder's term Dec. 31. The job will be on the ballot in November.
