Go back to the last levy, they didnt do what they were suppose to do with that money. Stepp is only part of the problem.

Does anyone really believe them on anything?

Vote No until the whole board is gone and a detailed release of all money spent from the last levy until current.

It will be tough to trust the board (and Stepp as well) going forward. How will we as citizens of Medina know that our funding (from taxes) is being utilized appropriately. Just in his raise alone, plus the signing bonus could have been utilized to have a reading intervention specialist and a few other positions (or needed equipment).

But they care for the kids, that's why they need to pass another levy. This whole mess shows the lack of accountability which is why I say go back to the last levy.

They misused that money and yet people buried thier heads in the sand. Well any taxpaying homeowner is sick and tired of their money being misused not just by the schools but by anyone.

Our kids being told they are cutting this or that and it's all the voters fault if they don't get their levy passed.

After the front page of the Gazette it showed what a bunch of hypocrites we have spending our money. I won't vote for a levy anytime soon, new board or not.

It is like a tale of opposites...Strongsville will likely not support a levy due to the teachers. Medina will likely not support a levy because of the Administration (and arrogance of Randy Stepp...and the board now)

I wouldn't support any levy, times are still hard and the teachers and their benefits can sustain them till the times get better.

Alot of people are out of work and despite what our auditor wants to say, the foreclosures are still up, property values down. If you are working not many are getting wages and many people with the new healthcare have had their hours cut.

Strongsville teachers don't know how good they had it and the behavior of some should cost those teachers their jobs. As far as the subs, if you needed a job, if you had a family to feed, if you went to college to become a teacher and seen the chance would you not take it? Not many people care about unions anymore.
