Yet another candidate to become the Easton Area School District's new superintendent has decided he doesn't want the job.
Robert Culp, assistant director of Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit 21, has withdrawn his name, according to the Morning Call. He had been named as one of two front-runners for the position last month.
Board Member Pat Vulcano told the newspaper another candidate might be waiting "in the rafters," but declined to say much more.
But his colleague Frank Pintabone contacted Easton Patch Tuesday morning to say he's not sure what Vulcano was talking about.
"We have no third candidate. I've been to every meeting he has," Pintabone said. "We had two candidates, two withdrew. I wish we had a third."
Culp's decision comes just five days after Michael Schilder, superintendent of the Bridgewater-Raritan School District, told the district he no longer wanted to be considered to replace current Superintendent Susan McGinley.
The school board voted last year not to rehire McGinley. Her five-year contract ends this year, and she is expected to step down June 30.
