Allen Dyer was a candidate for an at-large seat on the Howard County Board of Education in Maryland. He advanced from a primary election on June 24, 2014, to face seven other candidates for four seats in the general election on November 4, 2014. Allen Dyer lost the general election on November 4, 2014. Dyer served one term on the board from 2008 to 2012. His fellow board members asked the Maryland State Board of Education for Dyer's removal and voted for his impeachment in 2011. Dyer was accused of bullying, misconduct and releasing confidential information. He served out the remainder of his term while appealing his removal. The state's Court of Special Appeals rejected Dyer's efforts to reverse the impeachment decision in June 2013.
