I'm with you there. My gosh isn't it time she give someone else a chance? The aldermen seem to be afraid to not reappoint her. And why don't the school board members rotate the president or presiding spot? She has been president of the board what 15 years now? The supervisors change president every year and the aldermen rotate out of mayor pro temp every year. So what makes the school board different?
Let somebody new take a spot on the school board.

Since: Jan 13

Past time for her to move on! School board members should have term limits.

I am Walkered out.Pine Hill Drive use to be a pleasant place but now with all that has happened it has a real smell to it.Sharon Walker should not be reappointed and we all better start calling the Aldermen to tell them not to reappoint her.

Thank you watchful eye.This is really needed info.People want to be informed.I am sure Sharon Walker has been an asset to the School Board but these positions should not be forever.She has plenty of other interests she can occupy her time with.Time has come for a fresh new face at the meetings.I agree we should ALL put pressure on the city officials that will make this decision.Do not wait start today.

Thank you watchful eye. And, I think you are right, OS School Parent - it is time for a change. I think any of those candidates (at least the ones we have some info on) would be good replacements. Looks like they are all involved in the community in one way or another.

my God, I just read that the institute for marine mammal studies where Sharon Walker is one of the directors has been paying her son's consulting firm FIVE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS A MONTH FOR YEARS NOW!!!!!!!!! I had hoped she would not be involved with all this stuff and I don't want the school districts name involved in this mess . if my alderman votes to put her back on the school board for 5 more years our whole family who all feel the same way and who all live here in the same ward (5 of us) will not vote for him again. the same is true for the at large alderman. my dad gets his hair cut from him and said he was going to say something but decided not to. he can be passive when it comes to talking politics.

This is not a time to be passive.Sharon Walker is a bulldog and is not passive about preserving the family power base.Not only is her son being paid by her employer she took millions in grant money that should have been used at the Research Lab in Ocean Springs to Ocean Expo in D'Iberville.That is enough.Anyone that has applied is a better choice.Please contact all of the Aldermen and the Mayors office to voice your objection to her even being considered.

Mary, my alderman is Greg Denyer. He works for Dr. Bill Walker. His daughter works works for Dr. Bill Walker. He lives next door to Dr. Bill Walker and Dr. Sharon Walker. His picture was on the front page of the Sun Herald fishing on one of the boats Dr. Walker purchased through his foundation. Who do you think he is supporting for the Ocean Springs school board? I don't know what ward you live in, but please call your alderman. I have called several that have promised to have an open mind and will look at all the candidates. They have told me that it might be time for a change.
