Illegal loan to Twin Rivers trustee Cortez Quinn from district employee alleged
Twin Rivers Unified School District trustee Cortez Quinn released a brief statement Thursday in response to allegations he illegally took substantial loans from a district employee, who also filed a paternity suit against him.
"It's unfortunate that my personal life has become the focus of my goal to continue serving the public and the students of the Twin Rivers School District to the best of my ability," Cortez wrote in a statement emailed to The Bee.
"I do not believe that I violated any District rule and certainly did not intend to do so."
Twin Rivers Unified spokeswoman Trinette Marquis said this week the district has forwarded documents to the Sacramento County
district attorney and the Fair Political Practices Commission
that allegely show Quinn
received about $55,000 in loans last year from Sherilene Chycoski, the district's visual and performing arts director.
Quinn, who is district director for Assemblyman Roger Dickinson, D-Sacramento, is running for re-election in the school board race on June 5.
