East District School Board member Vivian O. Evans resigned yesterday amid allegations she doesn't live in Buffalo. The Telephone records the Buffalo News requested under FOIL showed she lived in another State since July 2010. Some folks still want to know why the other School Board members (Jacobs & Johnson), including Superintendent James A. Williams who knew about her whereabouts didn't offer much help as they attempted to investigate her residency issue? The telephone records show they were in touch with her eversince she left town.
The School Board has 30 days to fill the vacancy, otherwise, the Mayor to appoint. Evans won by 15 votes against Buffalo State College Professor Theresa A. Harris-Tigg who many believe the reason why the faction on the Board aligned with the Superintendent Williams kept silent about Evans' residency & new place of employment to stop her from filling the seat. If so, the people want to know what happened here, the Board members involved, and why?
