Wayne Central School Board meets tonight amid controversy surrounding two members

The controversy centered around two members of the Wayne Central School Board could be a hot topic once again at the board’s Thursday night meeting.

Steve Gallaher and Dennis Landry could be removed from their positions due to allegations of official misconduct.

Among those allegations are claims of inappropriate and unauthorized independent inquiry.

Landry said they asked questions to hold leaders accountable, while Gallaher is calling for greater transparency.

Both deny any wrongdoing and were supported by many parents at a meeting several weeks ago – some of whom are alleging a cover-up.

“In the end, it all does affect our children,” parent Daniel Wood said at the last board meeting. “Right now, the district is spending money for lawyers and attorneys, and the money should be going somewhere else.”

School Board President Tim Reynolds said the board is trying to do what’s best for the community as a whole.

Hearings for both Landry and Gallaher are expected to be held in the near future.
