What a blessing... foe once the Hatch Act is working in the favor of York City Schools. This gentleman and his gang of conspirators on the Board have not only been irresponsible in their actions but destructive in the manner in which they have overrun the District.

By the way, how are all those game changers that we elected in the last Board Election getting on with their plan to revive the District? Funny have not heard two peeps form them over Beard's voice of the Board.

Surely Mr. Beard will be missed.....NOT

can't run but and be appointed. Can still serve but not run. Seems like a loophole in the law to me.

Someone with character and integrity would step down now.

generally school board is not considered a partisan political activity. Thats why school board members often run as both democrat and republican canidates at the same time.

but its time for him to go so the next clown can step up

The York City School Board is far more partisan than the York City Council. They control more patronage and employees than the entire City Government. And think for a moment that Board Members do not use the power they have to encourage the hiring and promotion of favored friends and relatives.

Non Partisan my foot. Elected any Republicans to that Board in recent years?
wtf
