Ron Dykes has succeeded in only 2 years of making himself look worse than Grant Rowland. It took a long 18 years for everyone to finally see what a snake Rowland was. Dykes has managed to show his slimy true colors in record time of 2 years. I bet Rowland is even amazed at how low Dykes has stooped in his sucking up to Mabe. Board members need to get a backbone and get rid of him.
better communication

I hope board members take into account the wishes of their own community before making a decision that affects everyone for years to come. Keep the lines of communication open so everyone will have a voice in this process no matter which choice you make.

Sounds like you school employees need a snake bite kit. You may purchase them at Mahoneys!

Let the newly elected board of education this summer pick a director of schools they could work with. If it happens to be Ron Dykes so be it, if not step aside. Why should the current board get to make this decision?

Can school board members be impeached? Don't know if I can wait until this summer to vote them out!

When is his contract up?

His contract doesn't expire until June 2011. Fifteen months away so what's the big rush? Let the new board this summer make the choice.

They will renew his contract, count on it. Dykes approved the Mabe Mega-Sports deals (along with other wasteful and unnecessary projects that benefit Mabe and his circle of crooks), so Mabe will make sure he gets renewed.

The best thing to do is to throw every single incumbent off of the school board this election. Get a new group that's actually working for the students & the community, rather than the pockets of the developer cabal.
Wake Up Call

Greer, SC

#9 Apr 3, 2010
This poll should be a wake call for school board members to see how the general public feels about Ron Dykes. He has brought embarrassment to the school system. I say NO to more years on his contract! Let new the school board this summer choose.

Dykes doesn't need sex rehab he needs an "At Risk" counselor.

What do you mean about the sex rehab needed? Is there something he is hiding? What is really going on?

Dykes has a "special friend" who is an "At Risk" counselor in the school system. The problem is she gets paid but never works. Call any Washington County School and ask to speak with the "at risk" counselor and they won't know who you are talking about. Shame on you Dykes it's all over our county.

The lying Clarence Mabe knows, makes you wonder what kind of man Clarence really is.
Ask Around

I have asked around and nobody knows who she is. If Mabe knows he won't be upset about it, just that it is less money for him to waste on athletics. Keep searching for the truth.
Needs to know the truth

There should not be anyone getting paid a salary for doing nothing. I want to know how he is getting by with this and not getting caught. Someone knows and it needs to be stopped. Washington County does not have the money to waste on this kind of foolishness.

Sadly the At Risk Counselor gets paid a salary and never works. The fact that Dykes has a "special friend" is one thing but paying her salary with an already tight school system budget is ALARMING! He makes over $100 thousand a year so he could afford to pay for her "services" with his own money. Call board members and commissioners to investigate this corruption.

Sounds like the Washington County Sheriff's Department to me. The woman who is now the "Chief Operations Officer" has been on the sheriff's payroll for years, even when she wasn't working there. They called her a "consultant". The 25 Washington County Commissioners put Dykes in that position. Are you surprised he is such a worm? After all, he is just another good 'ole boy.
set it straight

Actually, the office should be elected by the voters, not elected by the school board. Then, maybe, we could actually get someone decent not snakes like Rowland & Dykes. If they were to be elected they might actually try to run the school system right. Not the you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours game that has went on for too long
Thanks set it straight
