Town of Webb, NY- Recent developments show the charges against Adirondacks’ Board of Education President are not related to school district matters.

“The District is aware of reports concerning the recent arrest of Board of Education member John Abdo,” said school officials in a press release. “It is our understanding that the criminal charges that have been brought against Mr. Abdo do not relate to the Adirondack Central School District or Mr. Abdo’s role as a member of the District Board of Education. The District will monitor future developments concerning the situation, but will not comment any further at this time about what appears to be a private matter.”

We reached out to several agencies, including the State Police, DMV Communications Office and the Herkimer County District Attorney’s office to confirm additional details that pertained Mr. Abdo’s arrest status, however could not obtain such information following various attempts.

In a separate report from the Utica Observer Dispatch, Herkimer County District Attorney Jeff Carpenter said the charges stem from an investigation that grew for over a year. “It involves the charging of patrons at that office for (DMV transactions involving) seasonal vehicles like boats. Then logging a lesser amount and allegedly keeping the proceeds,” said DA Carpenter about the case details.

A state official with the DMV confirmed to reporters that Mr. Abdo formerly worked for the DMV office in Herkimer County.
