Those of us who oppose Kelly Marlow have been called many things by Ms. Marlow and her supporters. We, her constituents, have been called minions, jesters, and thugs by Marlow herself, while her supporters claim we are a lynch mob and a hate group.
A large group of citizens, who actually live in Cherokee County, agree that they don’t approve of the actions of our elected official and want to do something about it. No one is proposing a lynching, and that inappropriate terminology conjures very violent racial killings.
We are calling for her to resign from her role on the Board of Education; a role that she has publicly stated she does not understand.
Please look up the different definitions of “hate group” and explain which one applies to SCRAM!, as none that I have found come anywhere close (unless you mean that we are a hate group because we don’t like the person in office that you like).
We are outraged at Ms. Marlow NOT because she is asking questions. The call to resign stems from her unethical behavior, especially in submitting the formal complaint to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
I won’t lie that the felony charge is a huge concern, too.
Her opposition is a multi-faceted group. We are parents. We are students. We are teachers, too. We live in Cherokee County and are not activists from other areas. We are the community.
Marlow is not the victim — she is the problem.
