Forcucci appealing Hamburg School Board removal


Hamburg, NY - The Hamburg School Board saga has already cost taxpayers thousands and will cost them even more. Former Hamburg School Board Member Catherine Schrauth Forcucci is taking the district to court to try to stop the board from replacing her.

Last month, board members voted 5-1 to remove Forcucci for official misconduct. Forcucci wants her seat back, and now it will be up to a judge to decide whether that happens.

Voters elected Forcucci to serve a three-year term on the Hamburg School Board until June of 2016, but her colleagues voted to get rid of her in September after a lengthy misconduct hearing that included hours of testimony.

Now, Forcucci is asking a State Supreme Court judge to put her back on the board.

A concerned viewer wanted 2 on your side to get answers about several streetlights that are out on a town of Hamburg road.


HAMBURG, NY - A concerned viewer wanted 2 On Your Side to get answers about several streetlights that are out on a Town of Hamburg road. People driving home after work will tell you a stretch of road on Jeffrey Boulevard, where deer have been known to cross, can get hairy.

Driver Natasha Hawkins told us, "It's really hard to see. Some people will be walking to work, coming off a bus and you can hardly see them at all unless they have reflectors."

That's because when the sun goes down there's a section of road that goes dark.

"It's a safety hazard because you can't see and we get some people walking on this road too, they go to jobs and they're walking up and down the street, so it's really hard to see anything on this road with the lights off."
