27 First News is still pushing for answers to the mystery surrounding Superintendent Dr. Larry Duck’s departure from the Mahoning County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
WKBN obtained a copy of the MCBDD’s settlement agreement with Duck, and asked attorney Matthew Mangino to evaluate it.
He said the severance package reads more like a buyout than anything else. The deal includes nearly a full year’s salary and medical coverage for six months.
“That’s typically not what happens when someone is terminated for cause. If there is a basis for termination, that’s typically the end of the story,” Mangino said.
There’s nothing in the agreement that indicates any wrongdoing.
“This appears to be a mutual agreement to separate,” Mangino said. “And it appears any allegations in the ethics probe were unfounded.”
