It was proven last May 2013 that our Township Government Leaders and our CCFDWhy is the FD hirig a Lieutenant, a Captain and a Assistant fire chief? We thought that they HAD NO MONEY --- liars!
firefighters union were lying to us; And it was proven that No New Money is needed
to provide ambulance and fire protection for our Springboro citizens.
Don't Forget, that our township fiscal officer told fire chief, Mr. Kidd, that he should
spend down all that Surplus Money before he came to ask the Trustees to put the
next Fire Levy Increase on the ballot; And Mr. Kidd is an obedient "public servant"
and, based on the Township Government Business Meeting Minutes, it appears
that the surplus is being gulped down the throats of the CCFD, wasting
our hard earned money; trying to justify their greed for More New Taxes.
There is Encouragement as we look to the New Year and our newly-elected
Common Sense Trustee, Steve Muterspaw, comes on board. Those attending
last week's business meeting easily recognized that the Township Government
is not Ed Wade's playground anymore. Mr. Wade's rude arrogance (which turned
his face shamefully red) did not deter Mr. Muterspaw's questions regarding
the high cost of compensation/benefits packages and the Township's responsibility
to reign in those high costs, starting with soliciting bids for the upcoming insurance
As expected, Mr. Wade sputtered and shifted around about firefighters' unions collective bargaining issues being the big Evil that no one can master; but that's just another lie that we have all been told before. TRUTH be told, Mr. Kidd is going to have to CUT spending
to preserve that big surplus; because there is simply NO reason for voters to say yes to increased taxes in May..... and way beyond.
