I wonder with 4 pages of foreclosures in the Gazette today, what this school board is thinking besides or are the just purely ignorant.

They like to preach to the TAX paying homeowners and yet they seem not to be able to comprehend the economy and the struggles the TAX paying homeowners with children are going thru just to put food on their table, pay their medical bills, pay their house payment, put gas in thier cars.

Time for the schools to wake up and operate within the means the rest of us are having to do.

The first thing they need t do is either get a contract with the unions or throw he unions out. The teachers have been "negotiating" with the board for almost a year with no result. They know that they may have to give up some of their numerous perks and will never settle. They continue to work under the old contract..the board needs to do its job. They continally praise the teachers but the teachers give nothing back to the community.

Local schools form the foundation of a great community. Our foundation in Medina is crumbling quickly! The community will decline when folks don't want to live here due to poor public schools. When families move away to choose better school districts, funding of local businesses will decline. It's a downward spiral for a community with declining schools. Let's begin to support local schools and the local economy will be in a better position to support our residents. Think it through.

Wake Up needed to read the front page of the Gazette today, Randy got some nice perks and I'm not buying that the union didn't see that. Oh but that's right we are wrong not support the greed.
Go to the state website and see what some of these people are making that don't even work a full year. It's a joke. Oh and save the they went college for it, that was their choice. Alot of us went to college.

Maybe Medina Schools need to quit milking the taxpaying homeowner and quit acting like they are the reason my kid or any kid succeeds because they aren't!

Families move away due to high property taxes, unkept properties. Or the favortism shown to kids who play sports or families that have big names in Medina.

People support their kids, what they don't support is blackmail. Also hows those foreign cars the teachers and the board are driving? Nice support for the American auto worker!

Wow, an $83,000 signing bonus to ensure he does not take one of those many lucrative offers he has been getting…I think that $83,000 could have been better spent, like adding/restoring a reading intervention or math intervention specialist. Plus some of the smug comments he made to justify his salary and bonus.

But they need the money for our kids future and they care about them over anything else, if you don't believe that then you don't care about the kids or their future.(sarcasm)

Looks like Randy cared about his future and I find it hard to believe he is the only one out of the board and the union that didnt know about it.

Another lie. Take that LEVY off the ballot until they can start having some accountability!

VOTE NO!

Voting NO!

Didn't they misuse the fund of the last levy, are people going to keep handing them money and hearing excuses or cases of forgetfulness?
