  • February 25th letter to BFSA Executive Director Mongold-Robie

    Re: Buffalo Public Schools

    On January 14, 2014, by letter, copy attached, I asked the City of Buffalo Control Board to consider going hard against the Buffalo Public Schools (BPS) considering the tragic and irresponsible overspending by the Board of Education (BOE) and the Superintendent in the present fiscal year and the deficit projected for the next fiscal year. I was told that the BFSA did not feel any urgency to act before this next scheduled meeting.

    It appears that the Control Board has little interest in exercising its authority to impose itself on the BOE despite the fact that the Control Board and its staff, who collect paychecks to provide oversight and management of tax dollars being spent by the dysfunctional BOE and its Superintendent, is purposely avoiding its responsibility and yielding to the wills of Frank Messiah and George Arthur, two former African American leaders who spent their careers protecting the cycle of poverty to empower themselves and feed at the public trough.

    The current fiscal year deficit of the BPS is funded by $35 Million of unrestricted reserves. We are told that the balance of such reserves after the funding is $43 Million. Policy and State law require an unrestricted reserve of 4% of the annual budget which will be approximately $40 Million.

    The projected deficit for next school year is $62MIL, including $14 MIL for after school programs. Unrestricted reserves are insufficient to cover any of the deficit. When seeking the approval for last year’s funding of the deficit with reserves, the BPS was required to illustrate budget cuts during the year to erase the budget deficit. That requirement has not been met by the BPS.

    The Control Board seeks to look the other way and deny the taxpayer the oversight that it is required to give. The Control Board should resign or be immediately replaced.

    Above is an article that appeared in the Saturday Buffalo News, exposing the secret Republican In Name Only (RINO) effort to block Donald Trump from running for Governor, memorializing why the Republican Party (GOP) rank and file in upstate New York and Long Island are livid with RINO leadership in the State and County GOPs and within their elected legislature. The treacherous RINOs seek to sell them out again, but this time their underbelly has been exposed.

    In the meeting with Trump last Friday, 13 County Chairmen, 10 legislators and many others intended to explore Trump’s disposition to run for Governor this year.  Ed Cox, Chairman of the State Party, refused to attend.  He had already consecrated Rob Astorino with the GOPs endorsement, announcing for three weeks that Astorino was running when in fact Rob was saying he hadn’t made up his mind.

    Subject: RE: Insolvency of the Buffalo Public Schools

    Thank you for your email regarding the finances of the Buffalo Public Schools.  Please feel free to send the following response to your email distribution list. 

    My office is dedicated to protecting taxpayers and their investment in the city’s school district.  In 2012, I assigned the Special Assistant to the Comptroller, who is a Certified Public Accountant, the duty of examining the finances of the school district.  During this ongoing task, she has asked critical questions and offered recommendations to the district, especially in regards to the spending of grant funds and internal controls.  I have also aggressively refinanced the school district’s debt during my first two years in office, resulting in a savings of more than $60 million in interest costs.  Read more ›

    Attached are my prior memos and Ken Lovett’s recent article concerning my rationale for the removal of Dean Skelos and Brian Kolb from their leadership offices.

    The Republican rank and file in upstate New York and Long Island are genuinely upset with statewide politics, party officials and their elected legislators who have sold them out on so many issues. They don’t remember anymore why they are registered as Republicans. They feel abandoned and are looking for a new home. The party did well last year in local races but the rank and file know that the real problems of New York emanate from the Albany abyss and its disingenuous legislature.

    They don’t trust their legislators whose leaders have advocated a defensive posture of appeasement and conciliation instead of providing an “in your face” opposition to the liberal government. As the rank and file watch their life savings deplete, their children leave the State to find jobs and the family fabric wither away, their legislators let Andrew Cuomo give them a patronage and special interest laden economic development plan, the SAFE Act and more gambling, to suck the last blood out of upstate, while denying them the economic opportunity of safe and regulated fracking.
