Lenington Offers Resignation

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Yellowstone County Treasurer and Superintendent of Schools, Max Lenington, offered to retire but with one condition.

Lenington was outed for using his work email to send racially-offensive messages. Lenington offered to retire by the end of 2013 if county commissioners paid him nearly $90,000, or one year's pay. Lenington was elected as county treasurer in 2010. His term runs out at the end of 2014. If commissioners accept Lenington's resignation, an interim treasurer will likely be appointed until voters can elect a replacement during the next election.
