It was another bad night for Pottstown School Board Director Thomas Hylton on Thursday evening. Mr. Hylton was “called out” by Jeff Leflar for improper conduct, unbecoming of a School Board Director, as a result of Mr. Hylton’s constant attempts to undermine the will of the school board. Mr. Leflar gave some examples of Mr. Hylton’s “hijinx” during his tenure as a School Board Director. (HINT: Neighborhood School’s debacle, for starters)
Mr. Leflar quoted Pennsylvania State School Law, Section 406, which states:
The board of school directors in any school district in this Commonwealth, except as herein and employees, otherwise provided, shall after due notice, giving the reasons therefore, and after hearing if demanded, have the right at any time to remove any of its officers, employees, or appointees for incompetency, intemperance, neglect of duty, violation of any of the school laws of this Commonwealth, or other improper conduct.
Mr. Leflar, representing Code Blue, called for the school board to enforce Section 406 and by simple majority vote, to remove Thomas Hylton from the Pottstown School Board for improper conduct, specifically undermining the will and work of the task force appointed by President Huss.
Look for a flurry of advertorials from Mr. Hylton in the Mercury during the coming days to combat Mr. Leflar’s “leg drop”.
