A Western New York anti-Carl Paladino group is holding a rally tomorrow, and they're encouraging women and Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown to step up and speak out against the Buffalo School Board member.

The "Oust Paladino 2016" group is made up of local women who say they want Paladino removed from the board following his comments about President Obama and the First Lady.

The group is holding a rally Tuesday, January 3rd, on the steps of Buffalo's City Hall.  Members say they're appealing to Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, hoping that he will stand with them and demand Paladino's resignation or removal from the board.  Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz has asked for Paladino's resignation, but Brown has not. 

The Oust Paladino group is encouraging African American women to stand with them, and say their protest will include, "100 African American women representing Michelle Obama."  The group also encourages men who are interested to join.

Group members will meet at 12:00 p.m.  They invite the community to join them.
