DID YOU KNOW...
Only TWO of our school board candidates out of the FIVE who are running for school board election on
November 5, 2013...

are already on board as TEAM PLAYERS with our
current board's reform minded Students First/
Responsibile Budgeting philosophy?

DO YOU BELIEVE....
that leveraging school fees, services, personnel decisions, safety, or infrastructure maintenance to threaten families in order to influence regular or levy elections is wrong?

Look at Today and the Future....
Why not vote YOUR belief on November 5th and join those of us who believe as our TWO school board board candidates....DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN!

If YOU believe as WE believe...
PLEASE JOIN US IN VOTING FOR
DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN
as our next TWO elected
Springboro School Board Members!

On November 5, 2013
Vote YES! YES! for DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN
as our next TWO elected board representatives!

On November 5, 2013
Vote YES! for Renewal levy that saves taxpayers $6.5 million!

It's a win-win ticket for all students first,
quality classroom teachers and school community employees, and our community of taxpayers!

If people feel that Bitner and Vaughn have made a better argument for election then they will win.

If people fee they have not made the argument, they will lose.

Any way you cut it, three people will be elected.

Vote for the three that had nothing to do with the dumbing down of the high school curriculum or were responsible for helping to foment dissension in the district.

Vote Bitner, Vaughn, and Anderson

Vote Bitner, Vaughn, and Anderson
Tell It Like It Is pointed out earlier that a campaign slogan for the Malone Stuckey Anderson is "Leadership, Stability, Experience".

Lets break this down...

Leadership? As former principal and history teacher, what legitimate leadership skills does Malone and Stuckey possess... other than working with students?
Stability? During the time the Booster scandal was festering, Malone failed in not taking responsibility. While this scandal burned Malone continued to play with his fiddle.
Experience? Both Malone and Stuckey have lots of experience in Boro schools. However, we must remember the job of a school board member is to create and interpret policy, NOT to administer policy. The importance of keeping policymaking and administration separated, but in close communication with each other, is the key reason why the superintendent, treasurer and business manager should be be an integral component of every district's school board meetings.

An honest, functional school board member must work hard to represent the ENTIRE community...students, parents, teachers and staff, businesses, as well as interests and well-being of the average taxpayer.
Taking their histories into consideration, it's extremely likely that both Malone and Stuckey would lean heavily toward interests of students and staff, at the expense of businesses and the average taxpayer.

Vote your CONSCIENCE!
Vote for the BEST THREE!
Vote BITNER, VAUGHN & ANDERSON !

And any way you cut it, it will NOT be a union controlled board. Scare tatics are often used by cowards who feel the need to intimidate others to their side instead of logical arguments.

Can we trust the judgement of these who are openly campaigning to
split the Conservative Team of Parents Supporting Students First,
DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN?

Long-time "just sitting on the board" pro-union Don Miller
endorses splitting the Conservative Team and voting for
only one of the conservatives, Kolton Vaughn.

NFSS member/Union Activists/Boosters Board Officer
Tiffany Carlisle is campaigning to split the Conservative ticket of BITNER/VAUGHN by endorsing ONLY one conservative school
board candidate, Kolton Vaughn.

Paid for by private citizen sign maker, Doug Weideman, is
putting big bucks where his big mouth is bloviating on this topix
discussion his "one man battle agains the union" question: How would a union controlled school board spend your tax dollars?

(Excuse me, Sir, but where have you been for the past five years?
Until Dr. Kelly Kohls came on board in 2010, "a union controlled school board" ran a continuous stream of unnecessary levies, based on a false budget crisis, holding parents hostage over things like school/sports fees and busing. Springboro parent, Kelly Kohls,
was the first elected official to question the emotional blackmailing of our long-time "union controlled school board"
and the first board member ever to state in public meeting
opposition to putting another unnecessary levy on the ballot,
after educated Springboro voters had already just said NO
to four levies requesting increased taxes.)

Private citizen, Doug Weideman, in previous posts on this topix, has falsely accused board member, Dr. Kelly Kohls, of letting
go $90,000 of taxpayers money; and that is a lie; even so,
Doug Weideman has not posted an apology on this topix blog.

Private citizen, Doug Weideman, has reminded us on this blog that he has found new respect for long-time "just sitting on the board"
Don Miller, who has always just "gone along with the pressure of
Malone's status quo" no questions asked, just to get along with
union solidarity. This new respect was posted on this blog after
school board member Don Miller endorsed only ONE conservative candidate, Kolton Vaughn.

Mr. Weideman has also reminded readers of this Topix blog that
"WE The People" owe a note of thanks to NFSS/union activist leader and Sprigboro parent, Lisa Babb, "because she at least stood up for what she believed to be best for "the children."

Mr. Weideman also reminded readers of this Topix blog that he
had lost respect for our BOE President, Springboro Parent
Kelly Kohls, who is the FIRST Springboro Parent to publicly question Malone's status quo leadership, keeping our students left behind his union-first priority during his past 13 years of
non-professional service as SHS principal.

People in this community should ask themselves IF we can trust the judgement of our fellow citizens who are campaigning to split
the Conservative Team of school board candidates, David Bitner
and Kolton Vaughn. Why would our community want to do that?

Then why won't he answer how we will end up with a UNION CONTROLLED board when only 1 of the 5 candidate have belonged to a union.(Unless Bitner and Vaughn have and aren't admitting it, they never show up to answer questions because they cannot think for themselves).

Part of being in an election is running and putting everything out for the public to base a decision on (including the company you work for, which Vaugn did but Bitner didn't).

Makes one ask

What are they hiding?
What are they afraid of?
What kind of representatives would they be?

Only candidates who have the fortitude to show up for public debases deserve to be considered.

Please explain the fact that Doug was denied permission by the Bitner/Vaughn campaign to add Anderson to Bitner/Vaughn campaign flyers; BUT refused to respect the Bitner/Vaughn request; by backing up his opinions by adding Anderson to the big blue signs posted all over town paid for by Educate Springboro?

Just asking - isn't it a FACT that Doug Weideman IS the
dollar sign for Educate Springboro?

Isn't it a fact that just THREE days BEFORE the election, this topix page is showing hostility toward voters who believe it is the right thing to vote for just TWO?

And isn't it the endorsement of Don Miller to just vote for two,
Kolton Vaughn AND Charles Anderson ....

And the endorsement of Tiffany to split the conservative ticket and just vote for one conservative, Kolton Vaughn...

And the endorsement of private citizen Doug to just vote for ONE of the TWO conservatives OPPOSITION...

Isn't this evidence of "promoting dissension?"

Inquiring minds just want to move ahead.... in the direction
