I'm assuming the residents are paying the bill for the trustees' legal defense for their questionable behavior. These jokers would have a lot of nerve asking for a levy on anything now. If they do, Gabbard and Wade should be run out of town. The last fire levy was defeated pretty soundly. I don't think it would stand any chance of passing this time.

Yes, the citizens are paying for Wade, Lamb, Gabbard, McDonald, Pickett & Wilhelm's legal fees. The FD is spending money like a drunken sailor, promoted Agenbroad so his daddy the mayor will be proud, and continues to set a poor example. Talk about losing your moral compass. Clearcreek is the place!

Ed Wade is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees. He was elected in 1977 to his first term in office and has served screwing the citizens of Clearcreek Township ever since. In November 2013 he was elected to his tenth consecutive term in office.

Time to go!

Why is the CCFD all fulltime when the levy passed in 2001 they promised to stay a combination full time and part time department? Other fire departments in Warren County and surrounding areas have done this and what makes clearcreek so dam special?

It's possible to find out the truth on this by going back in public meeting minutes records; but most likely, FEMA funds/government grants paid for this initial overstaffing of the CCFD; and now that that one time money for increasing CCFD union members is gone; the CCFD must come up with a continuous stream of perceived un-met needs to deceive the citizens into thinking they need a tax increase in order to provide safety services for the community.

We all should ask, through the public records law, for a copy of the FEMA application, and see what they wrote. How much do you want to bet that they lied on the application. Can you say FEDERAL INDICTMENT? This way we can get them all, WADE, GABBARD, PICKETT, WILHELM, AGENBROAD, & KIDD. Donít forget to get SIMPSON, he writes all of the FD grants and probably told KIDD how he can get federal dollars!

Have you noticed that when you go to the Dayton daily news web site, and search for clearcreek that nothing comes up! It appears that WADE is paying off some debts there as well! This is unfair and wrong. Tell Larry Budd to put the new articles back on lie.

Did you know that lots of people have thought for several years that this politics of personal destruction against good Springboro citizens, launched by the community of unionism, was all about the money? Now we know there is much greater harm intended than just controlling our money.........

Now we know that it is really all about union POWER to discredit, distort, and intimidate all citizens who exercise our constitution rights of free speech and individual beliefs, into collective silence, for fear of retaliation from the mighty machine of Ohio's forced unionism party of politics.

that's one reason I voted against the fire levy, and that's one reason why I think Wade is a crook.
