Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          December 12, 2022 


Subject:    Fact-Finding

We were notified this morning that our fiscal expert from NYSUT/Albany who was to testify tomorrow, December 13, 2022, on the financial condition of the District and other financial and statewide comparisons, has a severe case of COVID. He can’t even sit up. Therefore, he will be unable to participate.


He has expressed his sincere apologies. He will be with us as soon as possible.


We have advised the Fact-Finder and District and will advise you of the new date for Fact-Finding.


While we were ready to testify tomorrow, we will seek to gather even more information to demonstrate the great disparity with other districts and the great resources available to the District.


We will not take any chances.
