Get Schooled blogger Maureen Downey has obtained a statement from DeKalb school board candidate Corey E. Wilson on a 2006 arrest on charges of domestic violence:
“I have worked to address the real issues that impact our children in the DeKalb County School System: improving our schools; and supporting our teachers. I encourage everyone to look at my complete record and focus on the big issues. Let me be clear. I have been in love with my wife since we were teenagers, and I still love her. After recently celebrating our 12-year wedding anniversary, I am committed to my family, this school board district, and winning this race. I have a history of community service that speaks for itself. Look at the lump sum of my achievements and not a just few acts.”
The AJC’s Megan Matteucci reports Wilson isn’t the only one running for the school board who has an arrest record.
