Tempers erupt, police called to Susquehanna Twp SD Admin Building

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

We were told about a potential Susquehanna Township School Board meeting; instead there was a shouting match.

Cameras were rolling as the Susquehanna Township Solicitor Paul Blunt and Attorney Bret Keisling got into a verbal altercation at the district administration building.

The police were called; four officers showed up. Even then the heated debate continued.

Prior to the altercation, Keisling said he would hold a press conference. He represents two school board members who Keisling said were wrongfully not invited to an meeting.

"As elected officials, they're entitled to be in the meeting," Keisling said.

"Clearly its inappropriate for them to be barging in to a meeting in which they are in opposite parties of a lawsuit, completely inappropriate," Blunt said.

In fact, board members Mark Sussman and Jesse Rawls, Sr. do plan on suing the district over the superintendent Susan Kegerise's contract and its enforcement. They both voted against the contract.

The two are claiming it violates state and federal laws, including board member's first amendment rights.

Kegerise's attorney Jason Kutulakis spoke with abc27 about those claims.

"It's absurd. It's a clear absurdity the members of the community are being sold a bag of goods that just don't exist," Kutulakis said.
