Greg Denyer worked for Dr. Bill Walker. His daughter Libby worked for Dr. Bill Walker. His picture was on the front page of the Sun Herald while fishing with Dr. Bill Walker on one of the boats that was purchased with money from a bogus foundation established by his neighbor. He lives right next to Dr. Bill Walker. He is dear friends with Dr. Bill Walker and Dr. Sharon Walker. Greg Denyer needs to look up the meaning of the word conflict of interest. Your back ground as an educator should tell you this is a gross conclict of interet. I hope your interviewing skills are good during this process. You might need them in a couple of months when we vote you out of public office. You are nothing more than an extension of the Walkers.

Greg Denyer is a smart guy.He either plans to vote for Sharon Walker and not seek re-elaction or not vote for her an seek re-election.He is going to cause a complete uprising in this City either way.But first we have to make sure Sharon Walker is not reappointed.That is the task at hand.Then we can deal with Denyer.Call all of the Aldermem and Mayor and tell them under no circumstance should they vote to reappoint this woman to our school board.WE have the power to send her home.We need to exercise it.Do not wait start today.The interviews start on Monday for this position.

Greg Denyer has qualified to run again for alderman. He has an opponent who has also qualified. He is not as smart as he would have you believe that he is.

I knew he was qualified which he could always withdraw.He is going to be suprised at the opposition to him if he tries to get her reappointed.This community is at a boiling point about the Walkers and what they are alleged to have done.She is part of the allegations of conflicts and misappropriation of money intended for one purpose then used for another self serving purpose.I cannot stress how important it is for the City to hear our voices by phone,by email, by visit.Get involved or get stuck with the Walker Drama for five more years.
Just the facts please

Great article Sunherald.I would like to know the last time there were 8 new people volunteering their time to serve on the Ocean Springs School Board, all in oposition to a siiting board member.I bet never. The obvious reason the interest is so high is because of who the sitting member is.Sharon Walker has served on this board for over 15 years.This is not supposed to be a lifetime appointment.In fact based on what I see somebody needs to enact term limits to keep this from ever reoccuring.The Aldermen will start interviewing all applicants on Monday afternoon.Please contact them by phone or email and let them know they need to give others a chance to serve.We have 3 days to be heard. Please get involved
