Teacher Randy Mudge accused of inappropriate conduct with two female students

By Jim Planck

ALBANY — The teaching and administrative certificates of a popular and longtime Phys Ed director, teacher and coach at Hunter-Tannersville Central School District have been suspended for one year by state Commissioner of Education Richard P. Mills.

The action was taken by Mills against HTC faculty member Randy Mudge on May 18, following a two-and-a-half-year review of a Dec. 15, 2006 formal SED filing called a “Notice of Substantial Question of Moral Character.”

In that filing — which was also signed by Mills — the state Education Department states it received information alleging Mudge “engaged in an inappropriate physical, intimate and/or sexual relationship with a female student” in the 1988-89 school year, and again with a different female student during the 1991-92 school year.

I cannot believe that so many people in our community have continued to back Randy Mudge in this whole investigation. He admitted to his inappropriate behavior with two underage girls and feels no remorse. Do you want your children to have him as a teacher? I certainly do not. He certainly is no role model in my book no matter how many of his "friends" support him or look the other way concerning his whole behavior. There is so much more that has happened with him that our community does not know about...but that is water under the bridge at this point. I am just glad that he got what he deserved and hopefully will not have the opportunity to work with kids again.

This teacher should go. He has violated a trust that a parent should be able to have with teacher. Anyone that attended HTC at that time, knows it wasn't only two girls. THey are just the only brave ones to come forward and testify. He doesn't even have the guts to apologize and take it like a man. I think the supporters he has would feel different if he had sex with their daughters just after graduation and fed them booze.

I haven't followed this story, but have to say I use to be good friends with Ralph. He use to tell me the story when he walked into the locker room in the high school and find Mrs. Petrella Wilson and Mr. Mudge having intercourse in the boys bathroom. I wonder if our board president will support him now???

If you guys don't think it's right to have sex with someone 18 or any type of relations then change the age you are considered an adult. I see a lot of posts of people with their own agendas.
