Today, the BTF authorized legal action with the Commissioner of Education to remove Carl Paladino from the Buffalo Board of Education.

The legal actions claim Carl Paladino:

a. engaged in acts of bad faith, intentional misconduct, neglect of duty or a willful violation of law (see Notice of Petition 38-57).

b. violated law and Board of Education policy by disclosing information from Executive Session (see Notice of Petition 58-64).

As a result, this action will seek:

a. Carl Paladino's removal from the Buffalo Board of Education.

b. a ruling declaring him ineligible henceforth to hold such office.

Carl Paladino has been served with the required documents.

"We believe his racist and destructive statements as well as his disclosures of information from executive session clearly warrant his removal from
the Buffalo Board of Education. This action will end the negative, educationally disruptive and emotionally harmful conditions his actions have caused in our schools." stated Phil Rumore, President of the Buffalo Teachers Federation.
