Melissa Bailey File Photo Six months after he ended a 21-year legacy leading New Haven public schools, Reggie Mayo sought to head back to full-time work running a school system—in Bridgeport.

Mayo (pictured), who retired last July, resurfaced as one of five finalists for interim superintendent in Bridgeport, according to the Connecticut Post.

If chosen, 69-year-old Mayo would have replaced embattled firebrand Superintendent Paul Vallas, who is leaving to run for Illinois lieutenant governor alongside Gov. Pat Quinn. Bridgeport is looking for an interim candidate to fill the job while it searches for a permanent replacement.

The school board finished interviewing the candidates Wednesday. It then chose one of the other finalists, former state education deputy chief Frances Rabinowitz.

It would be in Bridgeport’s best interest to install this veteran of education. 

I have known Reggie for over 30 years.  Reggie in my opinion, is one of the classiest brothers that I have ever known. 

If Reggie is still up for the task, then I wish him nothing but success.

Lucky for Bridgeport-T

It appears that Bridgeport probably made the correct decision
