To present both sides...

The Malones/Stuckey/Anderson black signs of darkness project....
gloom and doom for our children's future left behind to keep the union masters happy; pledging If elected, to re-define the role of the school board member...

whereas,
The BITNER/VAUGHN red, white and blue project support for the progress our current board has made in the past two years; and
are already on board as good team members... who will continue to
challenge the status quo where need be...

Two very different paths; Two very different Teams, leaving
Two of the five candidates as Two Losers on November 5th.

If you are a believer, let's make sure that DAVID BITNER
and KOLTON VAUGHN are the First TWO winners announced in November 5, 2013, election night results!

Vote Your Belief!
Vote Bitner/Vaughn!

People in this community who are jumping on the Honesty bandwagon for Charles Anderson as the third candidate to vote for....
should broaden their vision beyond November 5th and ask
themselves IF Anderson,Kolton,Malone isn't the real ticket
that Miller is "silently" endorsing???
Stop working overtime being a conspiracy theorist. If Don Miller liked the idea of Ron Malone being on the future Springboro BOE, he would have endorsed Ron Malone right along with Vaughn and Anderson. But because he's honest, Miller didn't endorse Malone. Miller obviously doesn't think too much of Stuckey or Bitner, either.

However, you ought to be proud of your boy, Don Miller. You and he have something in common. You are both voting for ONLY TWO school board candidates!

EDUCATE SPRINGBORO ENDORSES BITNER VAUGHN AND ANDERSON

http://educatespringboro.org/2013/10/23/in-th...

Springboro’s school board should represent the interests of the parents and the public. Parent and community representation provides a critical check and balance. David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn are both parents of children enrolled in Springboro Schools and have committed to making education their top priority. They support the “Children First” philosophy.

Educate Springboro supports a slate of three candidates, Charles Anderson, David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn for Springboro Board of Education. David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn bring their perspective as parents, taxpayers and concerned citizens to provide more balance in board perspectives. We are also confident that with the addition of the business acumen Charles Anderson has accumulated in his many years of service to the community, our district can continue to be sustainable. Keeping our students as the first priority, supporting our teachers, and being the voice of the community in public education is our goal. The addition of Anderson, Bitner, and Vaughn aid us all in accomplishing that goal.

Educate Springboro is also FOR the renewal. Issue 14 is a reduced renewal levy. In good faith, we’ve balanced the budget and met our obligations. When it became clear that the district could meet its needs with less money, the board voted to request lower millage in the renewal levy in November. Not only have we proven that we can live within our means, but now every stakeholder in this district—our students and families, our staff and teachers, and the taxpayers–will benefit.

Please join Educate Springboro in voting
FOR DAVID BITNER for School Board, and

FOR KOLTON VAUGHN for School Board, and

FOR CHARLES ANDERSON for School Board, and

FOR Issue 14 for our school district.

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?

Seems as though I do live in truth. Where do you live?
Still can't handle the truth?

Come on No Debate here is your chance

If you live in the truth, please tell us which of these points you find not to be true and most importantly, WHY?

The January 2013 Warren County Educational Service Center audit report performed by professional educators reviewing our high school program of studies had this to say regarding the direction
Mr. Malone steered the academic program:

"Documents provided to the Tactical Assistance Visit Team indicate that contrary to the High Schools That Work* philosophy, SHS believes that offering low level coarses is in the best interest of students. This belief, however, WAS NOT
SUBSTANTIATED by research or data."
(*High Schools ThatWork is a program to enhance education for children.)

--WE BELIEVE for too long our leadership was nt motivated, content with the status quo, leaving to many children underserved. The direction we head now is sustainable, it creates opportunity, it offers balance, and it states the truth.

--WE BELIEVE in order to deliver the highest level of education we must raise the bar well past the state minimums and strive to challenge our children, parents, and staff to reach higher.

--WE BELIEVE--that allocating resources from areas of less demand to areas of greater demand is one common sense approach to resolving needs in our schools.

--WE BELIEVE--that in order to take advantage of the higher level classes at the high school, more children must be put on that track at earlier grade levels.

The trouble with No Debate is No Debate has no choice.

No Debate agrees with everything Bitner and Vaughn stand for and No Debate's greatest fear is that others will as well.

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!

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?

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?
