Residency of Detroit School Board president called into question
The Detroit News reports that court records show DPS Board president Anthony Adams is not meeting the Board's residency requirements.
From the Detroit News:
The estranged wife of Detroit school board President Anthony Adams has accused him of living outside the city — a violation of board policy.
Deborah Ross Adams, a judge in Wayne County Circuit Court, contends Adams lives in Oakland County, according to court records related to their divorce proceedings, and that he is improperly using their marital home in Detroit's Palmer Woods as the basis of residency for his school board seat.
Adams filed for divorce from his wife in June 2009 in Wayne County after 31 years of marriage. In his filing, he says the couple separated in January 2009.
One board member is quoted as saying she doesn't have any concerns about the matter.
The board's vice president, Tyrone Winfrey, says the school district has more important things to worry about at the moment.
