(Toledo, OH) The newest member of the Washington Local school Board may have trouble attending his first meeting.
Patrick Hickey was elected to the board Tuesday, two years after resigning as superintendent. His tenure ended with a ban from school property after he verbally abused basketball officials at Whitmer High School and had inappropriate contact with a district employee.
Hickey believes lifting the ban should be a formality after he was chosen by voters to fill one of three open school board seats. There's no word yet if district officials plan to lift the ban.
