Bingham threatens to get involved

Torrington Mayor Ryan Bingham said this week that he might get involved in the school situation involving superintendent Susan O'Brien if the school board does not end the saga soon.

The Board of Education is scheduled to meet tonight at 7 p.m. to hear O'Brien's last 2 hours of testimony on her handling of the resignation of former high school principal John Metallo. O'Brien threatened to fire Metallo if he did not leave his post. Board Chairman Paul Cavagnero has said the board might not make a decision until next week on possible action against O'Brien.

Bingham said Saturday that he purposely chose to stay out of the situation. He wanted to avoid adding "another layer of politics to the situation." He has not attended any school board meeting regarding this issue, which was brought to the public's attention in September.

Is it just me or does O'Brien seem to have her nose in just a little bit of everything. I have no children in the school & I'm glad I don't. With all of the "drama" I'd certainly be worried about my childs education.
