Ousted school chief sorry for Resume Lies

Jason Morris

EMERYVILLE — Stephen Wesley, the Emery Unified School District superintendent who resigned Wednesday over allegations he falsified his resume, publicly apologized Thursday for embroiling the district in controversy.

Wesley’s apology came during the public comment portion of the previously scheduled district Advisory Committee meeting, a day after school board trustees voted unanimously to accept the superintendent’s resignation.

Wesley admitted his mistake and said he still wants to be part of this community, according to school board vice president Kurt Brinkman.

Brinkman said Wesley told the crowd at the meeting that he was on his way to Arizona when he decided to head back.

“That took a lot of guts. I have more admiration for the man than I ever had before,” Brinkman said.

Wesley’s appearance, which was not scheduled, didn’t come as a surprise to supporters, who credit Wesley with strengthening the tiny district wedged between Oakland and Berkeley.
