Why the photo above? Well, that fellow in the picture looks like the Chair of the School Board, Ryan Sawyers, and it seems to me like Sawyers intends to make certain that tomorrow’s School Board Meeting looks just right. He is going to get just the perfect picture he wants. How? Got some information on Sawyers plans in a few emails. So I thought I would share.

Breaking: PWC School Board Chair Violates Law?
Jun 20, 2017
The chairman of the Prince William County School Board has apparently decided to take a page out of Governor Terry McAuliffe’s playbook and violate the law and policy to accomplish his personal agenda.
The Board is set to vote tomorrow night on a controversial policy that would threaten the dignity, privacy and safety of school children in intimate settings like showers and locker rooms. At multiple meetings over the past year, opponents to the policy have dominated the public comment period at board meetings. Apparently, the chair of the board, Ryan Sawyers, is tired of the opposition – you know, parents and grandparents of children in the schools. (Sawyers is currently seeking the Democrat nomination to run for Congress in the First District.)
Through text messages obtained by a Freedom of Information Act request from Delegate Bob Marshall, it was revealed that that Sawyers is apparently trying to use his power and influence to place hand selected speakers at the top of the public comment list for tomorrow’s meeting, instead of requiring them to sign up like everyone else. (continued here)
Instead of just hearing from concerned citizens, Sawyers want to use the public comment period to further his own agenda. That is, he want to hear from supporters of his agenda and freeze out opponents. That, apparently, is not only unethical, it is illegal.
