Sister Mary Scullion Resigns Ethics Board

Sister Mary Scullion has resigned her seat on the Board of Ethics, saying she has too much on her plate to give the job the proper attention.

"Due to increasing demands, both personally and professionally, and because of a desire to participate in other efforts for reform which compete with my ability to serve on the Board of Ethics, I must resign at this time," Scullion said in a letter to Mayor Nutter dated Jan. 14.

Nutter nominated Scullion, co-founder of Project H.O.M.E., to the board a year ago. The Ethics Board has five members, appointed by the mayor, who serve staggered terms of five years.
