Here you are worried about some Buffalo businessmen putting a total of $50k into the BOE election while the BTF is putting $500k into the election paying for the lies in the ad by the Supt that all is well in the Buffalo Public Schools. How can the Supt participate in an election that will determine who her bosses will be paid for by the union. She is clearly conflicted. How can a union legitimately and materially adversely influence and help determine who their management adversary will be and with whom they will negotiate contracts?  That constitutes conflict and undue influence.   Where are the parents and taxpayers protected?  This is the primary reason we have today the most dysfunctional school district in New York.
