Buffalo Teacher's Federation President Phil Rumore is recovering in an Albany hospital after slipping and falling on some ice near his home. Rumore, who was carrying a friend's dog at the time, suffered fractured ribs during the unfortunate incident.
He has received tons of cards wishing him a speedy recovery as well as some wishing that his injuries had been more severe. The accident happened at Rumore's Western New York home. However, he traveled to Albany on business before realizing he needed medical care. Strangely enough, Rumore blamed the fall on the Buffalo Public School Administration's inability to offer the teachers a fair contract.
