HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Harrisburg is looking for a new city treasurer. This, after current treasurer Tyrell Spradley submitted his resignation Monday.
Spradley’s decision comes after 16 months on the job. He was appointed treasurer in November 2014 after the resignation of John Campbell over theft charges.
In a letter addressed to Harrisburg City Council President Wanda Williams, Spradley wrote, “It is with great gratitude, and a little bit of sorrow, that I resign as City Treasurer of Harrisburg, effective May 20, 2016.”
Spradley noted in his resignation letter that he will go on to other opportunities to serve the public.
Sources say he was given an ultimatum by the school district where he is currently employed full-time.
City council has 30 days to fill the part-time position that pays $20,000. All applicants must live within city limits.
