Stay Alert Voters! Each one of us in this community has ONE
opportunity to VOTE for only TWO conservative school board candidates, IF we believe that David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn should be elected as the First and Second board representative.

The third "wheel" will be broken, no matter which one of the Threesome of Ron Malone, David Stuckey, or Charles Anderson rolls into third place! Third place winner is just symbolism; no
substance! Why waste a vote trying to influence electing one of the three liberal candidates?

WHY NOT USE JUST TWO VOTES TO BRING VICTORY TO
OUR ONLY TWO CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES?

VOTE FOR BOTH DAVID BITNER/KOLTON VAUGHN!
YOUR ONLY TWO CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES WHO MUST
COME IN FIRST AND SECOND!

If you watched the TV news last night, then you should know that
Anderson really did not orchestate all of this as a tactic against Bitner and Vaughn, Because....
Our School Board member, David Petroni, spoke to the cameras on the news last night, telling the public why the Paid for by Educate Springboro signs are posted around town.
People in this community were informed that Educate Springboro
spent THEIR money to advance THEIR opinion on who they would
like elected to their school board, "for the children."
Because it is a PAC, Educate Springboro has every right to endorse any candidate, with or without their permission. Long before Educate Springboro's endorsement, I decided I'd vote for Bitner Vaughn and Anderson because Bitner Vaughn and Anderson have valuable private sector business related skills to bring to the board room.
Being lifetime educators, both Malone and Stuckey might be OK at interpreting and making policies. But having no business background neither Malone nor Stuckey has any clue about budgets and five year forecasts.

Vote Bitner Vaughn Anderson

Obviously your biased dark tunnel vision could see only your hatred
and hostility toward school board members Dr. Kohls, Mr. Rigano, and Mr. Petroni.

Those who were there with a broader, reform minded vision,
saw a concerned Springboro parent, who obviously is an independent thinker, presenting a review to our FIVE fabulous board members, school district leaders, and community members, commenting on an
independent study course in which he and his Springboro student had interest.

God Bless America! and May God Bless You!

That was some turnout for the big MSA union rally fighting against free speech and the right to voice one's opinion.

Television always covers union rallies, we only wish that more than 70 people would have shown up to fight against our first amendment rights.

In case those fighting the bad fight need a refresher course in basic parts of the Constitution, here it is.

The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.

It was adopted on December 15, 1791, as one of the ten amendments that comprise the Bill of Rights.

Vote Bitner Vaughn Anderson
Totally Agree with your point about Educate Springboro's rights of endorsement; and I haven't heard anyone around town question that right. I have heard lots of folks questioning the "reason for it all" at this late hour. What was the urgency of driving through the darkness of night proclaiming with expensive signs their
choice of school board candidates?

I have heard lots of people point out, as you have, that they had already decided, from the beginning of the school board campaigns, exactly how they would vote; and I have heard lots of people say they have already voted their choice of one, two, or all three candidates.

Inquiring minds do question exactly What was the Point of two board members making such a big deal about telling the public
their choice of candidates?

Other than slightly bruising the
morale of the Two conservative candidates, who are now being bombarded and badgered and falsely accused by the MSA supporters for pulling this dirty "gotcha" trick on the innocent older gentleman, Mr. Anderson, when everyone knows a more deserving soul than Mr. Anderson cannot be found anywhere in Springboro...?

I did notice that Mr. Anderson had carefully prepared his response
to the TV news, sitting comfortably in his chair with his precious grandchild in sight...everything carefully pre-arranged to play the victim role...

while the Bitner/Vaughn campaign hurriedly tried getting out a press release, and unfortunately, was misquoted by the TV news reporter...

BUT, it is agreed that Educate Springboro has every right...
even if it does cause some of the school board candidates
feel they were wronged.

Now if only Mr. Malone would have taken his TV time to explain why he is running for office instead of crying somebody wants to support Bitner Vaughn and Anderson.

Maybe Mr. Malone could have spoken to the issue of the results of our student's Ohio Achievement Assessment test:

State test results show after 8 years in our district’s educational system, only 32% of our children were able to score 75% or better on Ohio Achievement Assessment math tests.

http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Testing/Stat...

Mr. Malone's standard response to that issue is we were Excellent with Distinction an award earned by having your students score PROFICIENT and above, having students attend school regularly, and your having your students graduation rate.

DEFINITIONS OF PROFICIENT
2013 OHIO ACHIEVEMENT ASSESSMENT TESTS

..........MATH SCORE........READING SCORE

GRADE 3.......... 63%- 71%.........58%- 77%

GRADE 4.......... 47%- 71%.........46%- 65%

GRADE 5.......... 48%- 65%.........51%- 77%

GRADE 6......... 40%- 58%.........37%- 63%

GRADE 7......... 34%- 58%.........44%- 68%

GRADE 8......... 32%- 56%.........48%- 66%

*OGT.......... 41%- 61%.........41%- 63%
*Ohio Graduation Test taken in the spring of the sophomore year

Or Mr. Malone could have explained why he was asleep at the wheel while the the Boosters fund raising he was overseeing for his high school was looted of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Or maybe Mr. Malone could have explained why he did not support early college credit programs that could be earned while kids were still in high school called dual credit programs.

Number of dual credit courses last year BEFORE Mr. Malone retired - 0

Number of dual credit courses this year AFTER Mr. Malone retired - 6

Or Mr. Malone could have explained why he felt that continuing to offer a curriculum laden with low level courses was in the best interest of our students.

The Warren County Education Services Center audit of our program of studies by Mr. Malone's professional education peers noted in both 2010 and 2012 that:

Page 10
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bxs0_xA64y_HS...

"Documents provided to the Tactical Assistance Visit Team indicate that contrary to the High Schools That Work* 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."

Instead, Mr. Malone chose to whine and protest against somebody else's right to choose the candidates they wish to support.

Vote for the three who did not dumb down the curriculum at the high school.

Vote Bitner, Vaughn, and Anderson

Stay Alert Voters! The hour is late!
The message is URGENT!

If people in this community want to see the conservative majority of this three-legged school board race, seated in the FIRST and SECOND chair in the Springboro School Board elected offiicals position... then why not stop this bullying of old man Malone and get out there and spread the great news... that we only have to vote for TWO conservatives and, IF ELECTED, these TWO conservatives will render the THIRD LIBERAL CANDIDATE as useless to gain CONTROL of the board to put the re-emphasis on the financial gain of the union masters.

This school board election is not about Malone
"dumbing" down the curriculum.

This school board election is not about electing
the "weakest link."

This school board election
is all about electing the TWO strongest conservative candidates as our FIRST and SECOND
place winner and claim the VICTORY of a Conservative 2-1 VICTORY over the liberal MSA team!

Even those who are less than proficient in basic math should be able to comprehend that electing
ONE David Bitner/ONE Kolton Vaughn adds up to the
MAJORITY of TWO Conservatives! IT JUST TAKES TWO!

This school board election is all about electing
BOTH David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn as the conservative majority winners on election night.

This vote for revenge and campaign infighting taking place over WHO gets Anderson is casting a the darkness of the MSA threesome, OVER Shadowing our TWO BRIGHTEST CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES,
DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN!

Stay Alert Voters --
ONE MORE DAY TO SPREAD THE GREAT NEWS....

On November 5th,
DON'T FEEL OBLIGATED TO VOTE FOR THREE!

YOUR CAN VOTE ONLY FOR THE STRONGEST TWO!

VOTE FOR BOTH CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES ONLY --
DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN!

It's for our children, our community and toward a better future for our schools!

So you are saying that just because someone has a conflicting opinion that they no longer have freedom of speech.

Got it.

Direction Of Simple Truth

http://educatespringboro.org/2013/11/03/in-th...

Here’s the simple truth about the Board of Education race in Springboro.

There are three open seats on Springboro’s Board of Education on Tuesday’s ballot.

There are five candidates.

Voters may choose any one, two, or three of the five candidates.

There are no slates. There are no tickets. Voters will choose three individuals.

Educate Springboro endorses three candidates to fill three open seats. The math is just that simple.

And we chose to endorse the three candidates who have spent this campaign talking about our students and our schools. That’s what we do. The cornerstone of Educate Springboro is putting Children First.

David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn are talking about students and opportunities our students have to learn, grow and succeed in our schools. They question the “proficient” standard. They have brought independent audits of our high school to light and proposed using these reports as well as student data to drive smart decisions and investments in our schools. They want to create new opportunities for our students to learn and succeed.

We also support Charles Anderson because of his business acumen. His business sense will serve our community well on the Board of Education. Although Mr. Anderson has shared his campaign with Dr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey, there are no slates in this race. Candidates are elected as individuals. We’ve chosen to look at the candidates rather than the camps and to support the candidates who will do the most for Springboro students.

On the other side, the MSA campaign is bickering over words on signs in a campaign that is focused on the adults more than the kids. MSA complains about the current leadership, but their campaign fails to articulate any goals or vision for the future of our schools or the success of our students. In the final moments of this campaign, they are writing press releases about campaign signs.

They still don’t get it.

There are candidates who are campaigning in the interests of students. And there are candidates who are campaigning in the interests of adults. Their campaign rhetoric is a preview of what they will do on our Board of Education. Educate Springboro endorses the candidates who will put Children First.

Please join Educate Springboro in voting

FOR DAVID BITNER for School Board,

FOR KOLTON VAUGHN for School Board,

FOR CHARLES ANDERSON for School Board, and

FOR ISSUE 14—the reduced renewal levy--for our school district.
