Continuing her push for a temporary state takeover of the Rochester school district, Mayor Lovely Warren sent city residents a letter last week urging them to vote on the issue in November.
In June, at Warren’s request, City Council approved a November 5 referendum calling for a state takeover. But the takeover issue is highly controversial; critics include not only the school board and the teachers union but many local education activists.
