Grove City Area School District officials delayed the release for 30 days before fulfilling the request.
Mextorf mentioned his DUI issue quickly in the process:
“I am writing this letter to request consideration as a candidate for the position of Superintendent of Schools at Grove City School District. Recently, I resigned my position as Superintendent of Schools at State College Area School District to address a personal issue regarding a charge of driving under the influence. I have addressed this issue aggresively, and have taken the necessary steps to ensure this incident never occurs again. It is my hope that a detailed investigation of my personal and professional history will allow you to view this singular incident of poor judgment through the prism of an otherwise pristine career of meaningful contributions and service to others.”
