Watch Out, Buffalo School Board!


Remember Carl Paladino, the 2010 New York gubernatorial candidate in New York who ran on the message, “One wants to clean up Albany with a whisk broom. One might even use a mop. Me, I’ll clean out Albany with a baseball bat. That’s how bad it’s gotten. . . . Albany is a cesspool.”

He’s now running for the Buffalo school board: “The developer is a longtime critic of the board and City Hall, often citing Buffalo’s low high school graduation rate and performance on state tests.”

He’ll clean out the Buffalo school board with a baseball bat!
