The Akron School Board member who was found overdosed in his car on Thursday night has submitted his resignation.

Akron Public Schools spokesman confirmed on Monday evening that John Otterman gave his resignation to the Akron Board of Education at approximately 5:00 p.m. The board did accept Otterman’s resignation.

On Thursday, a barber found Otterman just before 8 o’clock at night slumped in the front seat of his car.They were in the 200 block of East Cuyahoga Falls Avenue.

“Our owner of our building, he’s in his car, I mean actually his car, has been out there for hours,” said the barber to 911 dispatchers. “We shook the car, we beat on the windows and everything, he’s not moving.”

When help arrived, it took four cans of Narcan to ultimately revive Otterman. It was ironic, perhaps, given that just last year, he fought to have that same overdose antidote placed in Akron Schools.

Police say they also found fentanyl and marijuana in his car.
