Indeed, words have consequences!<quoted text>
Should never be forever disregarded...however, should not be running around the district saying they are fiscal responsible. Circumstances happen, yes, unfortunate ones as well....but words have consequences......
In 2008, when former school superintendent, Mr. Baker, told the 2008 board members (Don Miller, Mike Kruse, William Thomsen,
Craig Colston, Diane Trifaro) that in addition to the school renewal levy, NEW TAXES were being demanded, or there would be consequences, holding parents hostage over things like busing and activity fees, inquiring minds starting asking questions, refusing to accept Mr. Baker's one-sided opinion of his false budget crisis, and just said NO to increased taxes, and yes to renewal levy with no new taxes. But, instead of respecting the will of the people who voted for responsible spending for education, while living within our means, our former superintendents, Mr. Baker and Mr. Lolli, continued bullying and badgering and emotionally blackmailing Springboro taxpayers for completed unnecessary increased school taxes to meet the teachers union's demands for more money.
Thank goodness Springboro parents, Mrs. Kohls, Mr. Rigano, and Mr. Petroni who "went running around the district" volunteering their time and expertise, educating their Springboro neighbors that there are TWO sides to every school levy request; and voters deserve to hear both sides: Fiscal responsibility VS Tax and Spend. Informed voters chose to believe the words of fiscal responsible education; And the consequences of those words resulted in the rejection of tax and spend words.
Actions speak louder than words; so Springboro taxpayers took action at the polls, repeating FIVE times the words NO NEW TAXES.
Words have consequences; It has now taken Springboro voters five failed levies and two school board elections to change the old OSBA indoctrination of tax and spend school district leaders to our new reform minded philosophy of fiscal responsibility.
Thank goodness we still have Springboro parents, Mrs. Kohls, Mr. Petroni, and Mr. Rigano (who are now BOE representatives) still out there running around, and investing hours of volunteer time in board committee meetings, Educating Springboro that children
first budgeting works.
Words have consequences! Action speaks louder than words!
Kelly Kohls is committed to ensuring that the children of the Springboro community receive an excellent education while keeping the costs of that education affordable, by carefully adhering to responsible spending!
