Carl Paladino on Buffalo schools ballot
BUFFALO -- Outspoken former gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino is vying for a seat on Buffalo's school board.
Voting takes place Tuesday from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m.
Paladino lost his bid as the Republican nominee for governor to Andrew Cuomo. He's now up against a teacher's aide for an open seat on the Buffalo Board of Education.
Paladino says he doesn't have any children in the public school system but that he's running for the sake of the community. He lists as issues a high number of failing schools and students' poor performance on state standardized tests.
Paladino is up against Adrian Fitzgerald Harris, a teacher's assistant in the suburban Lancaster High School.
They are running for the Park District seat being vacated by Louis Petrucci.
