In a shocking twist that’d be more suited for an Adult Swim cartoon, a New Jersey public school superintendent has been identified as the local mystery serial pooper.
Thomas Tramaglini is the superintendent of Kenilworth Public Schools who had allegedly left daily deposits on the football field of a high school in another school district. The high school on the wrong receiving end was Holmdel High.
Tramaglini, 42, was issued citations on Monday, May 30, for public urination or defecation, discarding and dumping of litter, and lewdness, according to the state’s municipal court case database.
Holmdel High School staff alerted a school resource officer and athletic coaches “that they were finding human feces” at or near the track and football field “on a daily basis,” according to a Facebook post by local police.
Tramaglini is scheduled to appear in Holmdel Municipal Court on May 7.
USA Today reports that the superintendent makes $147,504 a year, and “requested and received a paid leave of absence.”
Tramaglini was appointed the Kenilworth Public Schools Superintendent in December 2015. His salary is listed as $147,504 a year, according to public employee records on www.datauniverse.com. Kenilworth is a pre-K to high school district.
Tramaglini requested and received a paid leave of absence from his job at Kenilworth Public Schools “given the nature of those charges,” the district’s board of education wrote in a statement. Paid leave is required by law unless an employee faces an indictment or tenure charges.
