To: Ed Cox, NY Republican Chairman
From: Carl Paladino
CC: Rob Astorino and the Republican and Conservative County Chairs
I‘m asking all those who receive this open memo to forward it on to your friends and family and contact NY Republican Chairman Ed Cox to let him know how you feel about this issue:
Republican Party of NYS
315 State Street, Albany, NY 12219
Ed, I’m sorry for the delayed response. I had a terrible chest cold. Yes, I am determined to do everything I can to see that the tyrant Andrew Cuomo is beat this year.
Rob convinced me that to further support a draft Trump campaign while saying that Rob can’t raise money and doesn’t have the name recognition was hurting him, so I am dropping the Trump initiative and I will be quiet on and support Rob’s ability to raise money.
Considering your present strategy, I cannot support the convention sponsorship. I would be violating the trust of the people I speak for who despise the Albany cesspool and the RINO legislators who have forgotten where they came from.
You have a strategy and identity problem with the Republican base upstate and on Long Island. They are the framework of the coalition necessary to beat Cuomo. They include Democrats, Independents, Republicans and Conservatives, (the gun owners, Independents and Reagan Democrats who are fed up with the liberal bubble.) They will not engage because they don’t trust the losing strategy of you and the candidate.
They do not understand how Rob can rail against the SAFE Act but refuses to denounce the treacherous Dean Skelos, the one person most responsible for the second amendment infringement. If Skelos and his RINO pals go untouched this year, next year he will join the re-elected lame duck Cuomo in SAFE Act, round two.
The ranks are tired of weak and phony career driven Republican legislators and tone deaf legislative and political leadership who don’t provide them with an opposition government that advances Republican/Conservative values primarily because they are complicit feeding at the public trough with the Democrats. The gutless and complicit Skelos promotes a defensive game, saying that Republicans can keep a Senate majority by doing as Cuomo demands, rather than leading a determined offense to show the people why they should elect Republicans. The County chairs who showed up in Trump’s office appear ready to lead us to a cleansed party. You don’t.
The ranks will not engage with you because you don’t take them seriously and you still want to play the Albany 2 step with their lives and futures. You and Rob are adhering to the same frustrating losing strategy of the past, promising a different result. Many of the downstate leadership have already laid down on Rob.
The ranks think Rob is trying to get elected by walking between the rain drops. He needs to energize his base and the press. He will be a great governor but first he must get elected. He must lead from the front and throw real punches to show his commitment to cleanse the Party before he can take on the evil tyrant. Fracking, the Moreland Commission dismissal and the SAFE Act issues are the paramount edge to winning this year, but the ranks will not get on the bus with a candidate who doesn’t have an unequivocal plan to destroy Skelos and cleanse the Republican Party of traitors. Last year’s local elections won’t repeat on a statewide level because Rob’s strategy does not appeal to the necessary coalition of voters to register their friends and families.
By refusing to engage the RINOs you are creating distrust and illustrating terrible weakness. Appearances are that you seek to perpetuate the Albany cesspool and appease the same old irrelevant power brokers who are now greed driven lobbyists. You are viewed upstate as a New York City establishment elitist out of touch with the needs of the people and pandering to the likes of Vinnie Reda, Al D’Amato, Mondello, Skelos and Kolb and over 6,000 lobbyists. You articulate well on many issues but you don’t use your bully pulpit to demand the support and loyalty of our legislative delegation. You say you can’t control them and you want party unity. The Republican/Conservative ranks do not want to be unified with RINOs.
We don’t want the Republican Party to continue its fall into the abyss. I will not support or encourage others to support your losing strategy.
Denouncing Skelos and the RINOs, will establish Rob as a leader of Republican/Conservative principles and values for the future. It will give the ranks a reason to rally behind him as a leader who will be different and clean up the Albany cesspool.

Re: Resignation as Superintendent
Date: April 9, 2014
I implore you to have the decency to resign immediately. You have only added to the chaos and dysfunction of the Buffalo Public Schools (BPS) since your arrival. Morale in every constituency can’t get lower. You do not have the ability to be a Superintendent. ON the job training in a dysfunctional district doesn’t work. Your lying and scheming are off the chart. The July 1, 2014 Board of Education (BOE) will discharge you for cause. It won’t be pretty. A buyout would be an insult to the 32,000 children in the district who have had to wait another year for an opportunity for an education.
Mary Guinn has been propping you up and acting as the de-facto Superintendent. Her end game is to have the BOE majority extend her contract, rehire and give contracts to Yamilette Williams and Faith Alexander as principals so as to make it necessary to buyout all three. We all remember that you lied twice to the BOE when asked if it was your intention to rehire Mary Guinn. Some of your other lies, schemes and incompetencies are: Read more ›

Re: Buffalo Public Schools (BPS)
I have read your op-Ed of February 26, 2014 presumably in response to my earlier memo, both attached below.
You say the BPS is facing an “unprecedented fiscal crisis.” You go on to eloquently and correctly describe why, illustrating that you have been informed on this issue for some time. Nevertheless, you don’t explain why you have remained a soft control board rather than going hard. Your memo is a clear admission of irresponsibility and breach of your fiscal oversight responsibility to the taxpayers.
The fiscal incompetency of the lame majority of the Board of Education and its Superintendent has been evident since the Superintendent arrived and hid in her office for the first 6 months. The CFO was in fact required to make a written request with question to be asked to get an appointment with the CEO. Read more ›

Re: Open Letter to Ed Cox
To reverse the downward spiral of the Republican Party in New York, I asked Rob Astorino and you, to clean up the Republican Party and denounce all Republicans in Name Only (RINOs), before the 2014 Gubernatorial campaign. In particular, Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos and Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb, must be called out for their past treachery to Republican/Conservative Party principles, including passage of the SAFE Act.
Shooting a cannon across the bow of disloyal, lame and parasitical RINO legislators and party leaders will send a clear warning and set the stage to energize and rally the new anti-liberal, anti-Cuomo/Silver voting base. Read more ›
