The Buffalo Board of Education voted Monday, 7-1, to spend $1 million in repairs on the potholes littering Carl Paladino’s face.

This winter was particularly strenuous on infrastructure, and pothole numbers are up around the region. Paladino’s face is no different.

“People have been complaining about all the damage on his face for a while now, so it’s been a long time coming,” School Board member Sharon Belton-Cottman said. “And it’s just an eyesore.”

Maintenance crews will begin work facewide this summer. Paladino’s dark, concaved eye sockets will be dug down to the subbase and properly repaired, said Interim Superintendent Donald Ogilvie.

“The hardest job is going to be patching up the mouth hole,” Ogilvie said. “It gets bigger and bigger all the time and some scary stuff can come out of it.”

The fixes are expected to endure at least two years of regular wear, but so was Ogilvie.

School Board President James Sampson said the investment in infrastructure repair will create more than 300 jobs and provide long-term benefits to taxpayers, like savings in car repairs, reduced anxiety and hypertension.

At press time, Paladino was mad as hell.
