I would rather suggest that BOTH sides leave the signs that don't belong to them alone.

Isn't that a basic lesson you teach your kids: Don't take what isn't yours???

I would suggest that their / our / your lives are being diminished each time a government entity reaches into your pocket and removes money from it.

If the NO vote wins, can I suggest that those that sincerely believe the additional tax money is needed by the district, just start sending it in! Don't whine about the failure. Just go ahead and pay the district what you truly believe it deserves.

If you support the levy and you aren't willing to take that step, then I have to doubt how sincere you are in your belief that this levy is a desperate need by the district.

I heard that the president of the group is a retired florist, so I think they should call themselves the Pickerington Pansies.

Why is it that when you don't have anything to refute the points from your opposition you start calling people names? What are you a kindergartner? Or are you just a mindless sheep following your leader until they run you off a cliff. Grow up and do your own research. Make the decision that YOU believe is the best for you, but stay out of the gutter with your juvenile name calling. It doesn't matter what one does/did for a living, just that they are a voter and tax payer trying to do what they think is best. There are much better ways to make your point when you think your side is losing because of factual statements than resorting to such childish behavior.

The theft of signs from an opposing view in my mind is an act of dsperation. The vote for pick kids group seems to be upset that the cat is out of the bag on the fact that PLSD employee wages and benefits take about 85 cents on every dollar. That leaves 15 cents to be used for everything else. When they cut they always take from the 15 cents. As long as the PLSD employees get theirs first then everything is Ok. Let's make the next cut from the 85 cent side. NOTE NO.

"Vote FOR Pick Kids representatives estimated someone took more than 100 pro-levy signs from the public rights of way."

And the moon is made of cheese. All you need to do is drive around and see
whose signs are still up. 100 signs were taken, but left the one next to it.

They are a joke. They should be called "any but the kids".

You should do something productive with your time rather than trying to defend the pickerington pansies. They are a lost cause.

And name calling is SO productive. I was pointing out adult behavior as opposed to juvenile name calling. You just don't get it. Stating facts has so much more impact. Of course you need to have provable facts to state not just rhetoric hearsay.

I noticed the "vote no" signs sandwiched by pro-levy signs on 256 shortly after they were put up. What a very grown up way to act.

"This could result in the city not allowing any political signs in the public right of way," Vance said.

I vote for this option. These signs, and all the others signs (computer help, PASA soccer, flag football, mortgage help, etc.) that sprout up at just about every big intersection are just visual clutter and make our city look junky.

I agree. Those areas should be off limits to all signs.

Now the "upstanding" vote 4 pick kids has hacked into the Patriots website. So afraid that they are going to lose that they think any means is justified. They must know that they focal points have no merit and thus are now running scared even to the point of illegal actions.

Wrong again, pick mama. They didn't hack into anything. All they had to do was buy the domain www.pickeringtonpatriots.com which was available because the stupid patriots weren't smart enough to figure out they should buy it themselves. Serves them right. Proves how dumb they are.

And this was the correct thing to do? Just because you can? Was it moral? What are so afraid of that you must resort to gutter tactics? The TRUTH? You all are so upstanding hiding behind lies and half truths. It's no wonder I don't trust the vote 4 pick kids and what they say. The actions they have shown are dishonesty and corruption. What a way to teach our kids. The end justifies the means. So sad. I was raised to have integrity, to speak out against wrong and never to knowingly LIE, STEAL or CHEAT, something the ones at vote4pickkids (Amanda T.) evidently have yet to learn. NO conscious. Again so sad.
