Scranton School Director Resigns

SCRANTON -- A school director in the troubled Scranton School District has resigned.

Jim Timlin stepped down Monday morning, according to school board president Bob Sheridan.

Timlin told The Scranton Times he finds the role takes up too much of his time.

His resignation letter was read Monday night at the first public board meeting since Pennsylvania's auditor general released a scathing report about the district's finances.

The auditor general accused the district of financial mismanagement and said a lot has to change to avoid a state takeover of the district.

The board will now have to choose someone to fill the remainder of Timlin's two-year term. The board did not vote on a replacement at Monday's meeting.

    Being a Director takes up too much time. Bwahahahahaha!!!!!!! That sweet salary and all of the benefit perks weren’t worth the time spent? My, what a Greedy Smurf Timlin is, but I expect to see his name in the news after an thorough investigation, again. Too much time………..LOLOLOL!! Too much effort to get the slight-of-hand down to a fine science, more like it!

    “The role takes up too much of my time” translates into “I’m guilty AF and I want to distance myself as far from this scandal as quickly as possible.”

    Human slime is so common that it’s predictable.

    maybe now he and Steve Corbette can get together for a cup of coffee. Both have lots of time on their hands. Might be a good time

      That’s not what’s so time consuming, what’s taking up so much time is answering questions about where the money went. Apparently, nobody was really asking about that before.
