WNED|WBFO and The Buffalo News are collaborating to present a series of in-depth, individual interviews with candidates for the Buffalo Board of Education.  This year’s election has attracted significant interest from the community with over a dozen candidates expressing interest in the race.  The Buffalo Public School District is under pressure to improve failing schools and boost its graduation rates. It is one of the most contentious times for school leadership, as Schools Superintendent Pamela Brown faces intense criticism from stakeholders, overseeing 34,000 school students. The outcome of the Buffalo School Board election could change the balance of power and determine the fate of Superintendent Brown’s leadership.
 
The upcoming May 6 election is for the three Member at Large seats.  Each is for a five-year term. For more information about voting and upcoming elections, visit the Erie County Board of Elections website at elections.erie.gov.
