Should Mel Burks be allowed to continue as a school board member? Mel Burks works for Hamilton Center. Dose anyone think I have a right to sue Mel Burks? I am not being a cry baby about this but when will Hamilton Center stop influencing politics?

Mel has been on the school board for a very long time and does an outstanding job in my opinion. I hate to see all this in Terre Haute and would like to see a change and a change is past due for the people.

I voted for Duke Bennett. But what I am saying is a matter of principle is at stake hear. While they shouldn't throw Duke Bennett out of office if they do then its only right that the other Hamilton Center Politicians operating a non-for-profit organization should be equally punished.

Lets talk about a more important issue. How can Mel Burkes coach high school ball & be on the school board, I see a conflict of interest. Why would a head coach go against anything Burkes wanted to do. If Burkes wanted to put in a certain player & Coach did not agree, I would think the coach would be afraid, always looking over their shoulders to see if he would go to the superintendent or other board members to have him replaced. Mel Burkes is a loser when it comes to coaching, he is 7 wins & 27 losses in the past three years in football (Asst Coach) he coaches the junior varsity basketball team & absolutely has no clue what he is doing. Burkes runs his players into the ground, with players complaining of, pulled groins, shin splints, elbows being bloodied due to some stupid drill that literally bloodies the players elbows,(How about letting the players use pads to cushion their elbows) He should be seen & not heard. Everyone praises Mel Burkes, Why? Because of the fear of being fired. He needs to go back to Hamilton Center & read up on the rules (Hatch Act) so he can do some good & help his fellow politicians at that facility. Mel Burkes, a legend in his own mind! He is great at, hugging everyone, I guess thats the politician in him. Until recently he just started acnowledging the AMERICAN FLAG during the NATIONAL ANTHEM.

MEL IS EXTREMELY RACIST I HAD TO DEAL WITH IT WHEN HE WAS ONE OF MY FOOTBALL COACHES . HE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED NEAR CHILDREN UNTIL HE CAN GET OVER HIS HATE.

I'm no fan of Mel, but the Hatch Act doesn't apply to school board candidates as those offices are technically "non-partisan" in nature. Read the law. That point is actually very clear.

According to the Hatch Act, the only office you can run for is the school board.
