A day after borough council accepted his resignation, embattled West York Mayor Charles Wasko said he did not resign, according to a ydr.com report.
While working in his garage Tuesday, Wasko, who came under fire for publishing racist social media posts, told ydr.com, “I never signed a letter of resignation.”
Council unanimously accepted Wasko’s resignation during its meeting Monday night. Minutes later, it named council president Shawn Mauck as Wasko’s replacement.
Was was not at Monday night’s meeting. He tendered his resignation to council contingent on a set of demands, including that council hire someone he felt was qualified to step into the role of chief of police. The borough has an interim chief, Matthew Millsaps.
Mauck said council had met Wasko’s demands almost immediately after receiving the email containing his resignation on Oct. 11.
