No. They still have not cleared up the questions on the WHOLE board's spending. Not just Stepp.

And personally if your kid isn't in Medina Schools and you sent them elsewhere and work for the Rec center, you need to resign with the rest of them.
Conflict of Interest.

The homeowners pay for the rec center that was for the schools, they pay for the schools, you abused the funds set aside for the children to suck it up and present a honest and all new board.

Close Heritage? Didn't stop you from building last time you got a levy which you lied about too how the money was to be spent.

You always come after the parents or the taxpayers and you sit there like money grows on trees.

Let the taxpaying voters choose the board and start over and show responsibilty it's a joke you even think you are trustworhty to handle a dime. Also please release all boards members spending of taxpaying dollars that they were reimbursed for.

I have to agree..NO.. Too many unanswered questions about the board and their spending, besides Stepp.
And personally if you notice they want to close one of the better schools, how obvious. Blackmailing the taxpayer to try and get their way.
I say oust the rest of the board, leave things as they are and then maybe the voters will pass a levy.
Quit threatening the taxpayers and parents, they are OUR kids, not yours. The board dug a hole and they have made little progress in digging themselves out. Stepp was only part of the problem.
And I have to agree a board member who is involved in the rec center and doesn't even send his kids to Medina, get off the board.

No way, we have lawsuits thanks to these people and it isn't all cleared up. My levy money shouldn't be used to bail them out of the mess THEY created. They lied to us.

No here too! I didn't like the meeting with the candy and the we'll close down Heritage instead of addressing their spending that they continue to do. We still have the same people on the board and if people pass this levy and trust them, you are fools.

I have voted no on every school levy. Until this year. Stepp is gone. The rest are leaving too. Let's give this new board a chance and vote yes so it will take some pressure off of them. The New board members will make the nessary changes on how they spend our tax dollars. They all know we are watching them like a hawk. And we will continue to do so until every child has every opportunity we had with the public education system.

^I feel the same. This will never happen again, I think everything will be watched more carefully that the money is going to benefit students first and foremost and not to fatten other's wallets. There is so much to gain and so much to lose with this levy.
