Paladino's memo on how the incoming board will pick the next superintendent

As noted in today's story, members of the incoming Buffalo school board majority feel strongly that the search and interview process for an interim superintendent cannot begin soon enough. Board member Carl Paladino wrote the three-page memo below, with some input from other members of the board minority who will become the majority in July.

In his statement, Paladino trotted out his favorite, unflattering descriptions of district leadership -- "BPS has suffered from bad judgment, incompetence, equivocation, racism and corruption." While this language doesn't suit the diplomacy style of all members of the current board minority, there's broader agreement about the process the incoming majority would like to see on the selection of the district's next leader.

Here's Paladino's memo below.
