I’ve had a long run with Mr. Dyer. I even made him the subject of a To2C Aprils Fools Day post. It was the best April Fools post I’ve done so far. It even fooled the working press, albeit momentarily.
As much as I dislike the guy I’ve enjoyed writing about him. He is one of those rare polarizing figures that make the loco politico stuff all the more interesting…and admittedly a bit fun.
Though I’m happy to see him off the school board, I miss having him as a target. No doubt he'll continue to try and stir things up but his antics from here on out will have lost some luster commensurate with his reduction in rank. He won’t be as interesting anymore. I’ll miss that.
I haven’t written much about Delegate Frank Turner but what I have written would not be mistaken for flattery. I’m not a fan. On the other hand, Frank holds a pretty key spot in the upcoming special session to raise our taxes. As chair of the Finance Resource Committee Subcommittee he’ll be in the thick of the battle over the expansion of gaming, the cure for all our fiscal ills.
