I did handle the truth. Look at the post. The post I was refering to was a lie and I showed the ill ways of the poster. Can't you admit that.
As far as your posts you forgot to include believing in pushing a right-wing agenda on our kids (since 2011) and wasting tax dollars, I belive the number YOU quoted was $90,000???
I do believe that our board's motivation since 2011 has been a little misguided when it comes to issues of creationism. All the time spend on that subject alone could have been spend more wisely.
I do believe that this false accusation of a Springboro parent, on this blog a few days ago, targeting the good leadership of our Springboro School Board President, is nothing more except
"Politics of personal destruction." This isn't a conspiracy theory, since this accusation of the $90,000 that was allowed
to get away, is stated clearly on this blog in previous posts.

Question remains, Why? with information that we know, there seems to be a revenge thing going on between this parent who posted this accusation on this blog, and the BOE president; but again, WHY?

Rumor has it that this distortion of the 3-2 Board vote
is swirling around (along with other silliness like creationsism and constitution study) during this election season, in efforts to discredit the judgement of this fiscally conservative BOE president; thereby, proving to the voters that the TWO conservatives running for BOE election are not credible school board candidates. But, who knows??? Parents for Sure (including
Sarah Jobe) have certainly proven themselves capable of
going was past the second mile in their persecution of
our BOE president.

Not to Worry! Stay the Course in 2013 and follow the path
of electing our TWO conservative school board candidates as our next TWO board representatives, who will continue to challenge the status quo where need be..

On November 5th
VOTE DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN!
WE CAN ONLY HAVE ONE CONSERVATIVE FIRST PLACE WINNER;
ONE CONSERVATIVE SECOND PLACE WINNER!
... and that's ONE winning ticket for ALL students,
parents, school employees, and community taxpayers!

Remember, citizens who live IN SPRINGBORO, you can vote for Clearcreek Township TRUSTEE as well!
Let us look at the record on LAMB & WADE:
They allowed the fire chief to place a 4.5 mil levy to the voters of Springboro and Clearcreek Township – this with a reserve of seven million dollars in the bank.
Over the past few years, Clearcreek Township has made the headlines, and not in a positive manner.
Issues of WADE selling insurance to the township employees,(an OHIO ETHICS VIOLATION) and pocketed 1.2 million dollars over the deal.
WADE purchasing property with TAXPAYERS money for a new park,(On Red Lion 5 Points Rd) while lining his friends pocket with over a million dollars of TAXPAYERS money and not completing the Patricia Allen Park
WADE & LAMB FIRED Police Chief Herdt for NOT firing a police officer -- who did NOTHING WRONG -- so they FIRED CHIEF HERDT
FIRED another police officer for following orders and the trustees paying over $90,000 for their defense to fire him.
Allowing failed policies in the fire department and even closing a fire station.
WATCH the CLEARCREEK FIREFIGHTERS PLAY with your tax dollars and SAFETY equipment. http://youtu.be/Zkpws1KUusA
Allowing an assistant fire chief accused of identity theft,(A FELONY) to KEEP HIS JOB!
NOW WADE & LAMB are being charged with violating the Ohio Open Public Meeting act, which they currently have to defend with TAXPAYERS funds. Court date of late November 2013 -- after the election.
WADE & LAMB have been trustees for over 30 years! PLUS, they get paid over $25,000.00 a year!
So, now that you know the TRUTH, isn't it time to RETIRE WADE & LAMB?
My name is Cathy Anspach. I am running for Clearcreek Township Trustee. I have been a trustee for 4 years. I have seen it all. It's a sad day in Clearcreek Township when the opposition feels the need to take down the signs that me and 1 person put up all over the Township. I utilize the taxpayers money as if it were my own. The signs that are gone cost about $1,500.00. That money is gone, never to be recouped. Just like your tax dollars! When is enough enough? Lets stop all of this schoolyard bullying, and put an end to this nonsense. I am the only one that listens to the taxpayers, and votes accordingly. Also, I could have used a fake name, but chose not to.

Extremists, radicals, fanatics! Sounds like a scary Halloween tale. Add in the words “tea party” and that’s supposed to make it a true horror story. Unfortunately, this is where some in our community have taken the dialog surrounding our school board and the upcoming election. It’s time for Toto to pull back the curtain and for us to elevate the conversation.

For the record, I do believe in limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets. I also believe that a free society requires virtuous people and that children need to learn these concepts. How confusing it must be for them to watch the behavior of adults and the tenor of the debate around our schools.

What has the school board done to invite this wrath? We are trying to change things in a few areas and the system would rather not change. Just like in Washington, opponents to change assign their targets what they believe are derogatory labels - "tea party", "extremist", "fanatic". However, if you were to ask what has been done that is "fanatical", you’ll get nothing more than generalities that have little basis in fact and are distorted to sound extreme.

If you asked me about the school board’s record over the last two years I would tell you about holding people accountable, uncovering embezzlement that had gone on for years, raising academic standards, increasing ACT scores, advocating for kids to take classes for college credit, restoring salary increases, controlling runaway medical insurance costs, balancing the budget (and giving the excess back), providing services for gifted students, reducing pay-to-play fees and increasing student participation, upgrading technology for online learning, instituting bring your own technology, reinstating high school busing, reinstating textbook purchases, reinstating a building maintenance program, and correcting numerous other deficiencies from years of administrative neglect.

You might recognize these things are good and are already implemented in other districts and ask why has it taken so long to address them in Springboro? I don’t know, but compared to the lethargic past, this has been a pretty “radical” two years. And to do all this while lowering taxes you would have to conclude these two years have been “fanatically” amazing and “extremely” successful.

At this point you might ask what this has to do with the upcoming school board election. This election will set a direction, backward or forward. The supporters of Malone and Stuckey tell you the current board is too “extreme”. Compared to the stagnation they are accustomed to, that is understandable. The other candidates are David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn. They are parents with young children enrolled in the district who are motivated to encourage our schools to continue to innovate, to offer more opportunities, and to keep children the board’s first priority.

On November 5th, we will make a decision. Will we choose based on the record, or the labels?

Warren County Educational Service Center--Response to comments being circulated by Bitner/Vaughn campaign. by Mr. Tom Isaacs the author of he report.

Beautifully written and crafted piece extolling the virtues of the man whom he wrote of in his January 2013 report.

Unfortunately you will not find him refuting this statement in his response.
Nice try though.

page 10

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bxs0_xA64y_HS...

"SHS still offers general level classes (Algebra 1A and 1B, physical science, US History, and World History). Thus, not all students experience a college-preparatory curriculum. Documents provided to the TAV Team indicate that contrary to the High Schools That Works philosophy, SHS believes that offering low-level courses is in the best interest of students. This belief, however, WAS NOT SUBSTANTIATED by research or data."

Who would we find at fault in this scenario?

Mr. Malone, the one providing the leadership in the wrong direction.

One of the things Mr. Isaacs also bragged about was the fact we were in the top 1/6 of the state high schools as ranked by USNEWS.

Ahead of us were these to name a few, Oakwood, Loveland, Sycamore, Mason, Brookville, Lakota West and a few others were also way ahead of Springboro at 110 according to the USNEWS report on the best high schools in Ohio

King's Mill #30
Lebanon #31
Lakota East #42
Bellbrook #48
Centerville #56
Waynesville #65
Springboro #110

These are our neighbors that some so casually dismiss as having lesser programs than ourselves. The truth is we are far behind precisely because of the leadership of one man, Mr. Malone.

Mr. Malone still cannot escape the consequences of his bad choices for our children.

Mr. Isaacs may wish to gloss over good ol' Ron, but the truth he told along with the evaluations by USNEWS tell a different story.

Vote Your Beliefs!

Remember in November... only TWO conservatives, David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn, feared the reality of "How would a union controlled school board use your tax dollars?"....

And only TWO conservatives, David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn, feared the detriment to our children's 21st century QUALITY education,
with a Quality Professional Educator in every classroom....

And only TWO conservatives, David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn, feared a union controlled school board "re-instating Malone's status quo" leaving our Students First left behind, that they faced their fears of the OEA's War of Words publicly demonizing them with the OEA's toxic politics of personal destruction... And stepped up to Stand Up for Kids as our only TWO conservative
school board candidates on the November election ballot.

Remember in November, when you voice YOUR beliefs voting for the next BOE majority, the progress made in the past two years of our very first ever BOE conservative majority elected officials.

Look at Today and the Future!

Spread the great news today that David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn
should be the TWO conservatives who come in first and second in the election results on November 5th!

The hour is late! The message is Urgent!

And the political intensity of "winning a campaign" is reaching hysteria with the question
hanging heavily in the air by the pro-union activists...

HOW DO WE SPLIT THE CONSERVATIVE TICKET OF THE TWO SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATES AND CHERRY PICK THE ONE AND SLAM THE BOARD ROOM DOOR IN THE FACE OF THE OTHER?

The OEA members are some of the worst people we will ever have to deal with as to radical social behavior. They have the destruction of America in their minds and they are terrble people because
their ideology makes them corrosive. They openly use children to execute their maniacal plans for social progressive changes at the expense of society, and this defines their essence.

WARS ARE NOT WON WITH KIND WORDS AND PLACATION!

Wars are won by taking away from the other side the will to continue fighting! This is what the OEA does to people like Kelly Kohls! And this is what the parents for sure union activists are doing to our conservative school board candidate, David Bitner!
These hostile activists are attacking David Bitner directly, hoping to rob him of his
opportunity of serving our school children and community, as an elected BOE representative, just because an Independent Thinker/Successful business owner like David Bitner, does not "FIT" the standards of the elitist bully professional educators of the collective thinking union-minded
kind.

These hostile badd for boro activists are attacking the David Bitner/Kolton Vaughn conservative school board campaign, hoping to
rob this school district of our opportunity of having TWO conservatives, DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN, elected as our next TWO board representatives.

Stay Alert Voters! Look at Today and the Future!
People in this community should ask themselves what can we do TODAY to further ensure the election of David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn as our next TWO conservative school board representatives!

If these are the best THREE candidates, then WHY is
Tiffany Carlise holding a private party at her house and
only ONE of these conservative candidates are invited?
Should not Ms. Carlise use the same common sense that you promote, and invite ALL THREE of the BEST, David Bitner, Kolton Vaughn, AND Charles Anderson?

Should common sense voters NOT have the common sense to see
that Tiffany Carlisle, by inviting ONLY one of the conservative school board candidates to a private meeting in her home, is in no way supporting the BEST OF THREE; but simply trying to undermine and split the vote AGAINST the BEST OF TWO conservative candidates?

Pro-Union activists are not only trained and skilled in their War of Words tactics, but also expertly trained and skilled in their
political strategy of Divide and Conquer. And, that's the worst thing that could happen on November 5th!

Could any of us have imagined in Janaury 2012, when our first conservative majority assembled themselves in the board room;
that less than two years later that same conservative majority is split up and now the pro-union majority poised to "take back their board" in November?
