Vallejo City Unified School District Board of Education candidates John Lewis and Richard Porter have both confirmed that they have officially withdrawn their names from the fall election.
Due to a leg injury suffered several weeks ago, Lewis said he has withdrawn his name from consideration so he can focus on recovery.
“I’ve learned a lot (about campaigning),” Lewis said by phone Friday. “I’ll come back in two years. You haven’t seen the last of me.”
Lewis said that he currently endorses all the candidates, except for incumbents A.C. “Tony” Ubalde Jr. and Hazel Wilson.
