The latest outrage from the Wilkes-Barre Area School Board is Bob Corcoran voting by Skype from his new home in Germany. It may be technically legal to attend a board meeting by video conferencing because of a temporary absence but this is ridiculous. As PB put it: One thing you have to say for the WBA school board, it never fails to amaze or, in this case, amuse, make that disgust.
Three members of the board want him removed but that may take months. His seat is up this coming election and it is safe to assume that he won't be running for reelection but anything can happen. The honorable thing to do is resign but be we are talking about the W-B Area School Board and there are people to be hired.
In addition to Corcoran, Christine Katsock, Lynn Evans and Phil Latinski are up for reelection. Evans said she is not running.
Expect a big field in the upcoming primary but the key is winning a double nomination making the general election a foregone conclusion.
