FRACKVILLE — A former police chief spoke out Monday about moving on after he settled with the Schuylkill County borough where he worked.
Months after a profanity-laced YouTube video put Mark Kessler in the national spotlight, the former police chief spoke about the whole controversy.
“I have thought about that a lot both in the public eye and at home and I don’t really know if I would have did things differently. It is what it is and it’s just moving forward now,” Kessler said.
Last week Kessler retired and promised not to sue in exchange for $30,000.
Kessler also talked about his next move: a possible reality TV show.
“A daily show that will be taped and stuff like that but we might travel around,” he said.
Kessler signed a contract for a reality TV show however there is no guarantee it will ever appear on the air.
“What he and his group is to be a guardian of the Constitution or guardian of things that they believe in but by legal means, voting,” explained Kessler’s attorney Joe nahas. “More of a protector or guardian, not a tyrant or someone (to) overthrow government.”
Mark Kessler also is a member of the North Schuylkill School Board. Kessler was asked if his video’s send the wrong message to students.
“I’ve been there for two years and I’ve been doing a good job and want to stay there. I want to keep the checks and balances, I guess you could say,” Kessler said. “I do a good job on the school board. I do a better job than the other school board members, I can tell you that.”
Kessler says he won’t resign his school board position and looks forward to his future and a possible reality TV show.
