School Board votes to request removal of Wayne Foote

December 21st, 2018 by WCBC Radio

At a special Friday afternoon meeting that lasted just ten minutes, the Allegany County Board of Education voted 4-1 to formally request the state board of education to remove Wayne Foote from the local board for willful neglect of duty and misconduct. The official resolution points to acts of intimation and harrassment by Foote against board personnel as well as breaching the confidentially of school board executive sessions. The vote, likely the last taken by the current board, saw members Sara Beth Bittinger, Tammy Fraley, Nick Hadley and Laurie Marchini vote in approval of the resoultion- with Foote voting in opposition. Foote made no comment, while his attorney George McKinley told WCBC News that he plans to fight the issue and anticipates the process could be lengthy. Foote was the top vote getter in the June board primary was was re-elected to a second term just last month. He will be sworn in to a second term January 2nd
