Porter, Wilson deny bribery allegations — Times Herald Article


Richard Porter and Hazel Wilson each strongly deny that they were involved in an alleged bribery scheme revolving the Vallejo school board.

In an unpublished letter to the editor submitted to the Times-Herald last week, B.A. Groves, who also goes by Blanche Groves Vaughn, alleges that Porter was offered a teaching position with the district so he would stop his campaign during the fall election to be elected to the Vallejo City Unified School District Board of Education.

“He was promised a teaching position based on a phone call after he filed his declaration (of candidacy paperwork), Groves Vaughn states in her letter. “This candidate was bought. This candidate’s actions skewed everyone else’s efforts.”

“This is not true,” Porter said by phone Monday. “She has incorrect information and no proof.”

    It is now up to the public about what is to be done, hold a special election. But doubt that will happen, we will all complain but nothing will happen. Wilson was in denial of the grand jury reports, bullying and drugs in the schools, and she is rude to people who criticize the district. I no longer will not have my student be pawn for ADA so the district can get more money. Good riddens Vallejo School District!

    It does seem that the unfortunate timing of Mr. Porter’s hiring and filing for office can give rise to speculations like what Ms. Vaughn alleges as fact. Will Mr. Porter and Ms. Wilson need to file slander charges against Vaughn to clear their names? I guess it depends on what kind of evidence backs up Ms. Vaughn’s allegations.

    From what I’ve seen of B.A. Groves, she is the sort of person who double-checks information before coming forward. That’s what I’ve seen when she appears and speaks at the podium during Council meetings. If she did her homework on this issue, then she must have the evidence in her possession to back up her statements. Going to be very interesting how this all plays out.
