WHITE PLAINS — East Ramapo School Board President Nathan Rothschild resigned from his position with the school district Friday amid charges accusing him of engaging in mail fraud while serving as the Monsey fire commissioner.
Rothschild appeared in Federal Court in White Plains earlier today, pleading not guilty to the felony charge, said Herb Hadad, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office.
East Ramapo Interim Superintendent of Schools Joel Klein said that to his knowledge, there are no allegations against Rothschild regarding any wrongdoing in East Ramapo.
