Superintendent of Mahoning Country MRDD placed on administrative leave

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Little is being said about the sudden suspension of the superintendent of the Mahoning County Board of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities.

At its meeting on Thursday, the board voted to place Superintendent Larry Duck on paid administrative leave.

Mahoning County Commissioners say they are waiting for an explanation.

"Really, we haven't been informed at all. The commissioners want to sit down and talk with their board and the president of the board and get some feedback as to what's going on," said Mahoning County Commissioner David Ditzler.

The board's attorney, Chris Sammarone, says the action was taken, "Regarding a matter that is being referred to the Ohio Ethics Commission." That is the only statement being released at this time.
