Exactly what Delmas Preston said on FB is that ak steel owed back taxes in the amount and the schools part was 265,000 they used that money to put the bleachers in and then borrowed more to to some other work at the football field and to add the press box! There was a lot of different stories about donations but that is his words that were copied before he deleted them!
Would love for you to message me on Facebook......we have very much in common....I can see why the boards dogs thought we were the same person!

Vote yes!!!!! fairview's tx rate at 68.9 is enough and we already pay what the typical tax payer in ky pays. Fairview just doesn't manage it like they should.......Throwing good money after bad is crazy.

Also BM pay is out of line in that it is higher than most small independent school districts in the stats as referenced on the KDE site. This is ridiculous in relation to fairview's cash crunch. Just one more way Fairview mismanages money and then wants people to pay more.....one word here.....hogwash.

The residents of WW are already paying the state average in school taxes even without the 3% utility tax. Do the math.

Brandi Webster posted on the I Grew Up In Westwood facebook site a list of questions that the BOE should answer at their "set-up" meeting on Monday. She didn't mention that she is the most ardent supporter of the tax they have, and she has already spoke against those same questions on the Fairview Utility Tax Opinions page. Check it out! Everyone opposed to the tax should be careful of this meeting. You can't ask questions or get feedback from the board. They are having their tax supporters to submit in mass the questions they want to answer. Also, I read on the tax page where Brandi said she was having to pay utility tax to Ashland. Ater some questioning she admitted she was paying utility tax to Ashland because she wanted to. This lady loves paying taxes, and wants everyone else to pay to support her various children. What's the story on this woman?

The board is trying to spread a false rumor that everyone in Westwood is already paying the utility tax to Ashland or Boyd Co. I read where the PVA was contacted about this and has instructed how to have this changed in the rare occasion that it could happen. The supporters are still trying to tell this lie. Check your utility bills and you will see this is not true. It usually only will happen with cell phones because of where you buy them.If they say this to you, ask them to show the bill,and ask why they haven't contacted the utility to stop paying it.

I made a simple mistake when I said to Vote Yes for the children. Then this Vote No person called me an idiot. Now I see who the bad people are in this issue, so I will definitely VOTE YES TO STOP THE TAX.
VOTE YES TO STOP THE TAX!!!!!!

Here are some reasons people should vote "yes" to the recall. 1. The property tax rate of 68.9 is significantly above the state average of 56. With the $150 per month increase the board says will be added to utilities this means most people in WW are already paying what most citizens in other districts pay for school taxes. The 3% utility tax will put a much larger tax burden on the WW citizens compared to the state average. 2. The ever growing out of district population of students contributes NOTHING in local property taxes or fees to help with the cost of their education, the amount needed to offset what the state gives in loaded onto the WW taxpayer without thr BOE even trying to set up a fee directed at this population which is currently over 40% of the population. 3. The board has not maintained the building properly even though local property taxes have been some of the highest in the state for years as documented on the Kentucky state revenue Internet site. 4. Many repaires are currently already being done, 2.2 million including new windows, HVAC, foundation repairs, and many other things. Also, if the plumbing is so bad why wasn't the $265,000 from Armco used on this project instead of bleachers? 5. Westwood doesn't need anymore kids from Huntington. This gas got to stop. Nor should job offers to a certain AAU coach keep being repeatedly made in the area if $40,000. The attitude of football at all cost has got to stop as evidenced by the flagrant disrespectful behavior of the boys the other night at the Boyd County game. We don't need this cancer!! 6. Salaries of certain individuals are WAAAAY of of line. This needs to be changed!! 7. Money needs to be better managed overall and unnecessary items, expenses and trips need to be eliminated. 8. Land should not have been purchased with so many needs at the high school nor should the big red building have been built with so many needs at the high school. The whole theory of "first things first" was ignored and it appears the board did not follow its own facilities plan when the money came from AK steel.9. Will the board just do whatever the hack it feels or use the money wisely as it would be intended for? Who knows? 10. The only thing I get out of when you put those pictures up on Facebook are is how the BOE has totally mismanaged the schools finances and now you want more? HECK NO!!

Jeff Preston has seen these concerns before and he refuses to address them. He lacks the balls. Not a new story with him. He's afraid to come on here and debate with the public because he's not in control of the situation. He's a coward. He's a liar. He's immoral. He wants what Boyd Co. has and he's going to rape the neighborhoods pockets to get it. Vote this man out at the next election. Do it for the kids. I am shocked at what I've seen him write on Facebook. Surely this man doesn't think he can harass people and be a member of the school board and get away with it. It's disgraceful who's running our school. Can't someone have him reprimanded for harassing citizens about this tax issue? It just doesn't seem legally right to me.

If people want to give money to the school then take out their check books and write a check....leave everyone else alone. Personally I don't want my money to support out of area, out of state and out of district kidos. That should be the responsibility of those parents or Mr . Music or Mr. McPeek!
