A former superintendent arrested for pooping on a school athletic field is set to receive more than $100,000 in his severance settlement.
New Jersey Advance Media reported that Thomas Tramaglini, the former superintendent of the state’s Kenilworth Public Schools district, will make off with $109,868 taxpayer-funded dollars after he was caught defecating “on a daily basis” at a school in Holmdel, NJ.
The court records acquired by NJ Advance Media show that the 42-year-old Tramaglini was on the payroll from his May suspension until his September resignation date, earning him $61,458 of his $147,500 yearly salary. Along with unused sick days and severance pay, the total comes out to nearly $110,000.
The report noted that the former Kenilworth superintendent is also suing the Holmdel Township Police Department in civil court for taking his photo and “maliciously” circulating his mugshot.
Tramaglini’s lawyer argued that his client’s daily defecation on the school athletic field was a “minor” offense unworthy of such publicity.
