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In an unpublished letter to the editor submitted to the Times-Herald last week, B.A. Groves, who also goes by Blanche Groves Vaughn, alleges that Porter was offered a teaching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.”
