John Troy, President of the Board of Education, resigned Monday, July 23. The resignation comes just two weeks after Troy voiced his interest in the district's vacant business manager position.
“I am resigning my position on the Mokena Elementary School District Board of Education effective today [July 23]. Concurrent with my resignation I am submitting my application for the school district business manager position,” Troy's letter read.
Previously Troy, who is currently attending Northern Illinois University to attain certification as a chief school business official, said that when t the timing was “nearly perfect,” for him.
“This is my career choice, it's what I've gone to school for,” Troy said. “If I could serve the district in that capacity, I'd be more than happy to do that.”
Troy resignation letter adds that, while the board informed him resignation was not necessary unless he is hired for the business manager role, “I have decided that in order to avoid any appearance of impropriety I am resigning today concurrent with submitting my application.”
