Few public figures in Western New York inspire such heated opinion, pro and con, as developer Carl Paladino.
Some people, especially those he has tangled with, consider him an insensitive bully whose only real agenda is Carl Paladino.
Others consider him one of the region's most valuable movers and shakers, a man who puts his money where his mouth is, a man of action who accomplishes more than our elected officials.
It's curious that Paladino's most recent targets are the Buffalo School Board and Superintendent James A. Williams. Other than some Sabres and Bills officials, Paladino may rank second only to Williams as the most controversial public figure in Western New York.
So what do you think?
