WNY Superintendent John Fauta referenced a two-page letter from Town Attorney Donald Scarinci, sent to Interim Executive County Superintendent Monica Tone, dated September 22, where he said that Fauta “has refused to bus these children.”
He also wrote in the letter that Fauta had painted the town “in a false and negative light to the Department of Education.”
Fauta then wrote to Tone on September 26 with a four-page letter, responding to Scarinci’s allegations point-by-point.
As Hudson County View reported last month, Fauta and Scarinci were on opposite ends of the spectrum after the town approved a $100,000 shared services agreement with the board of education.
Fauta told us that money for a new bus route could cost upwards of $700,000, so $100k simply wasn’t going to cut it.
Scarinci and town spokesman Pablo Fonseca did not immediately return calls seeking comment, but this story will be updated in the event comment is given.
