Late this afternoon, an email from WASD taxpayer and concerned citizen Sheri Crain was sent to; Williamsport Area School District Superintendent Dr. Timothy Bowers, WASD school board president Lori Baer, WASD school board secretary Wanda Erb, WASD school board member Marc Schefsky and Lycoming County District Attorney Ryan Gardner.


Attached, you will find a link to a recent petition calling for action to remove Marc Schefsky as a member of the WASD School Board immediately due to his non-residence in the district.

As taxpayers, we are asking for his immediate resignation, and in lieu of the same, removal. We are also asking for the vacancy of any and all votes he has participated in as a board member since his home purchase in the East Lycoming School District as a primary residence. Anything short of this request would be considered an ethics violation as outlined by the PSBA and inaction by the current board could also be be construed as the same.

Your swift action is demanded.

Of note, at last nights meeting, it is with huge disappointment to our taxpayer base that Mr. Schefsky, with lack of moral fortitude, participated in a vote to accept the resignation of a colleague who did the proper thing by resigning due to moving out of the district. This was not only wrong, but a direct slap in the face to us, and the students he serves.

I have also copied DA Gardner in this email, because his office would become involved should you decide to not take immediate action in his dismissal.

I would also remind DA Gardner that with Mr. Schefsky’s “shell game” of addresses, he has clearly participated in voter fraud with his addresses and elevated the same as an elected official and would ask him to investigate the same.

Schefsky had his residency questioned in “Residency of WASD School Board member in question”.
