Editorial: Results show one thing: Voters tired of Dyer
The voters have spoken on the Howard County Board of Education, though what they said is perhaps open to interpretation. One newcomer who promises to shake things up won big, as did a couple of other newcomers who also ran as outsiders. But two incumbents who are both part of the establishment also won big, while the third incumbent, the ultimate outsider, lost. And then there's the unpleasant reality that so few of the voters bothered to make their voices heard at all, a weak turnout that was not unexpected but which makes reading too much into the results risky.
