you people don't have a clue! The supt. has lots of time left and you'll have to buy him out. There's so much going on in a school district. Think how long it takes to hire a new supt.!! These idiots don't have a clue!

Sounds like your the one that doesnt have a clue.He can be fired at any time .Even if they would be stupid enough to buy him out there could be hugh savings in the district with the cuts in the bloated staff.

Weinberg has provided the old board members & now the NEW board members (thank God!) with multiple and documented reasons to dismiss in keeping with the terms indicated in his contract. Many are aware, and some were present as witnesses, when he verbally strong-armed and intimidated parents after both board/town meetings. There is no way he would have to be bought out. Weinberg has left every district he has served prior in a shambles and has left each one with either a lawsuit or on bad terms due to his unsatisfactory performance appraisals that he did not want to be made public. All of this information is available via the internet and the prior board not only knew about all of these issues prior to his hiring (I was told this personally by a board member) but did nothing about it after the fact, either. We now have an opportunity to start fresh without any "baggage". Let's capitalize on this opportunity and allow Dallastown to "get the pride back" and once more become a respected and outstanding school district. A very clear message was sent yesterday. Let the new board members take note -- it's time to now keep your promise and show Weinberg the door!

I hope taxpayers stand up and write in a vote for Carroll Tignall. He was only board memeber who stood up to Weinberg and tried to control the outragous spending that was approved by the remaining board memebers. I know this was clear the board type of vote, but Tignall was minority memeber when it came to cost control.

Anti-incumbency voting has strange consequences: Sweep away tax-and-spend Weinberg buttkisser Yoder AND financial watchdog Tignall.

Curioser and curiouser.

The only boardmemeber that ran and was against Weinberg and spending and education at every level was Tignall. And he lost. This is a good direction, but a good direction for ALL the stakeholders. The mantra of no spending and tax cuts hurts everyone with a stake in the education of our community and thats what was defeated when Tignall lost. You people are just clueless. Yeah ,most of them ran with the quotes about cutting costs, blah, blah, blah. But look deep at who won. PARENTS! Not old retired curmudgeons. And guess what, I'm ok with that.

Be curious to see how long it takes the new Board to get DASD from first to worst. At least property values will go down and decrease taxes.

Dear Fresh Quote - I literally had in my possession documentation when stacked was about 6 inches high - believe it or not! I gave all I had to a board member trusting and hoping that it would be put to good use. Unfortunately, I was too trusting and so I no longer have the specific documents. However, if you have some time, start by googling name and proceed from there. It won't be too difficult to re-create enough to keep your interest! Good luck!

An anti-incumbent sweep is a strange thing with unintended consequences--with one brush stroke push out the tax-and-spend Weinberg zuck-up Yoder AND the financial watchdog Tignall.

I am shocked about Tignall. What happened to the whole Tea Party Movement? What happened to all those taxpayers that were anti-goverment? I'm not devastated about this; just perplexed.

This new board is filled with a bunch of parents; I'm a little concerned that they might fall under Weinberg's control - especially because they have kids in the district.

Tea party is all hype. Good for TV, so they get the press. No real threat. And yes the new members are all parents and that is a good thing.

And for the record, taxes don't go down when property values go down?! Duh. Taxes are based on assessed value of the house and not market value.

Also, old board was tax and spend?! How much did your taxes go up this year? 0.0%

Lots of hot air and BS from people who just like to hear themselves talk and complain. The real problems are 1. people who bought houses in the district and didn't factor in the taxes. When lenders tell you what your monthly pmts are, people from MD weren't factoring in property taxes and did not budget for the EXISTING tax rate. We have not had taxes raised in any crazy manner. Yes they are higher in PA than in MD, but they are the sole revenue generator for school districts and other taxes are lower and RE taxes can't be examined in a bubble. You need to look at how everything in the state is taxed and paid for. The 2nd problem is defaults on taxes?! What is that number in the district? By some of the same people that were bad at budgeting and math at home. They now want to do the budget for the school district?! Their solution is to cut, cut, cut. Undereducate our community and the downward spiral continues.

Tignall was a 'no' man at all costs and glad to see him go. He had no solutions only complaints and all about $$$ not education.

Finally, I want to say one thing with the idea that someone might look at the big picture. Good schools are good for everyone. Better educated community, better jobs, higher home values, better everything! Why does every listing in the Sunday paper start with 'Dallastown school District'. A penny saved today, is not a penny earned in the future, it reduces the ECONOMIC good of our community in 5 or 10 or 15 years. I specifically moved here 6 years ago to get my son the best education in the best school district. So, I hope it stays that way!

Exactly! The Marylanders with their greed drove the economy and the cost of homes up. Now you can not pay the taxes, so now they go into foreclosure. Let's not forget the drain on our court system too.

First, are you buying a home? If you were here before 'THEY' came, your house is worth more?!?! Why would that be a negative?

Drain on our court system? Two things to say about that 'Mr. too afraid to use my real name'. First, I love the subtle racism there. Pretty classy. And 2nd, I moved from MD. You are making a huge judgement/stereotype about people you know nothing about. I have an MBA in Finance from one of the best schools in the country. So, don't classify a whole group of people with such broad implications. I was pointing out that some people that moved from MD were not figuring in the higher implied taxes when figuring what they could afford. In Dallastown, York Township, Springfield, and Jacobus, we have over $1.2 million owed in back taxes to the school district!

Anyway, grow up, get educated and learn to live with all kinds of people.
