There's been quite a bit of speculation over whether Pamela Brown, the third superintendent candidate, was getting cold feet about Buffalo.
Brown, the former Philadelphia administrator, did not come to town last week when all three candidates were scheduled to tour the district, meet with various groups and interview with the School Board. She said at the time that a family emergency prevented her from coming, but she would reschedule as soon as she could.
That left plenty of people wondering whether she was having second thoughts about applying for the job here.
The doubt has been laid to rest.
Brown is scheduled to be in Buffalo early next week, with an informal public reception scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday at Waterfront Elementary, 95 Fourth St.
It's not clear when the board plans to make a decision on which candidate to hire, although some board members have said they want that to happen as soon as possible. The next regularly scheduled board meeting is June 6.
