A familiar face may return to the Vallejo school board Wednesday night.
Vallejo City Unified School District staff is recommending the board of education appoint Hazel Wilson to fill the trustee seat recently vacated by Raymond Mommsen.
During a Jan. 20 school board meeting, it was announced that Mommsen — serving as president of the board — resigned due to family issues. Mommsen was first elected to the board in 2007, and ran unopposed in 2011. His seat is up for re-election this November.
Wilson is no stranger to the board, having served three previous terms as a trustee before failing to be re-elected in 2014.
The board last filled a vacancy in January 2015 when local resident Richard Porter — who received the second most amount of votes during the 2014 election — declined to be seated.
