Wauwatosa school board president abruptly resigns, citing threat

The Wauwatosa School Board president abruptly resigned Wednesday after receiving what he called a threat to him and his family.

Steve Doman’s resignation came two days after several community members loudly called for it just minutes before he was re-elected as the school board’s president for the second year in a row.

“I have a concern that the type of toxicity that you see in the board room will show up at my doorstep and that’s why I decided to step down,” Doman said Friday.

The calls for his resignation follow months of discussions related to a conflict of interest investigation involving a former district administrator. Some parents, as well as a current and former school board member, are also worried about the board violated open meeting laws, according to a WITI-TV (Channel 6) report.
