Buffalo, NY - It's been almost 9 months to the day since Dr. James Williams retired. Wednesday night the Buffalo School Board voted for Dr. Pamela Brown to be the district's next superintendent.
The vote was 7-2 in favor of Dr. Brown. Once a contract is signed, she will replace Interim Superintendent Amber Dixon.
Board of Education President Louis Petrucci told 2 On Your side, "We like to thank Amber for all that she's done in the last year, and as we move forward we all stand behind Dr. Brown and try to support her and will support her wholeheartedly in her efforts to change the Buffalo Public Schools."
Petrucci, and fellow board member Jason McCarthy were the only board members who voted against Dr. Brown. Petrucci explained the reasoning behind his "no" vote.
"Based upon the phone calls I received there was overwhelming support in my district for Amber," said Petrucci.
