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!

This is a pivotal school board election because it will set the direction – either a return to the past with a union controlled school board, or continuing in a fiscally responsible manner ensuring that meeting kids’ educational needs are the first priority. The school board exists to represent the interests of parents and the public providing a check and balance to assure the school system meets the needs of the community.

Parent and community representation are critical. David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn are both parents of children enrolled in Springboro Schools and have committed to making education their top priority, and they are already on board as Team Members with the current board’s support of the “Children First” philosophy.

Two of David’s and Kolton’s opponents – Ron Malone, former high school principal and David Stuckey a former teacher – retired this last year. Electing these two and their partner Charles Anderson would create a school board where none of the 5 members is parent with children enrolled in school. It would be monolithic board of 5 old men. The time has now come to
elect a couple of men with young kids to the board. The school district already has 400 employees with Education background and experience.

Unions are doing to public education what they have done to GM and Crysler. Quality of education is declining as the unions force more money into compensation and away from improving the product – highly educated children. The result is persistent requests for additional taxes as the school system’s resources are drained.

Our board has been able to strike a balance that is sustainable, but negotiations will begin again in March 2015. The teacher’s union supports the Malone, Stuckey, Anderson ticket and hopes to get two very friendly allies on the school board. It is important to have Bitner and Vaughn on the board as advocates for parents and children during the next round of negotiations. A union controlled board will place priority on meeting the desires of its members.

I hope you are as tired of the controversy surrounding the school board as I am. The controversy has been exaggerated by MSA’s supporters to gain advantage and influence this election against the incumbent board members. The best way to move beyond the controversy is to not perpetuate it by electing one side then the next repeatedly. Bitner and Vaughn are independent thinkers without allegiance to any faction. Let’s end the controversy by electing them.

Don't feel obligated to vote for One of the Three Liberal MSA candidates.

You can VOTE for Just TWO conservatives, David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn, and ensure our votes
will elect BOTH David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn.

VOTE NOVEMBER 5th
BITNER/VAUGHN

We are appalled at the use of this web site to demean and tell such outrages lies about the MSA candidates. You continue to make up fabrications and write such terrible untruths about people. You have certainly turned off us voters that WERE undecided. Shame on your lack of maturity and depth as human beings.

Why do I support Bitner and Vaughn?

They believe in some basic truths about our school system and the way we need to move to improve them.

BELIEVE
• Mr. Bitner and Mr. Vaughn 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 can and must do better, our children’s future depends on our actions today.

• Mr. Bitner and Mr. Vaughn 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. Federal and state mandates may preclude some reallocation, but we are still left with a sizable amount to influence.

• Mr. Bitner and Mr. Vaughn 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.

Mr. Bitner and Mr. Vaughn support Mr. Petrey’s move towards emphasis on more development in the earliest grade levels. While not all children will eventually end in a calculus class in high school, we can certainly better prepare them all for post graduate success. And that benefits everyone.

• Mr. Bitner and Mr. Vaughn believe that the future belongs to technology. It is absolutely essential that we recognize technology not as a means to an end, but as a conduit through which knowledge flows. Much like the wires that flow to our houses bringing electricity, our technology investments are being made to ensure the future flow of knowledge to our children.

• Mr. Bitner and Mr. Vaughn 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.

Merely stating there are some without defining any leave us somewhat at a disadvantage as to your insight and logic.

Why do I support Bitner and Vaughn,

Mr. Bitner and Mr. Vaughn support the progress made since the last school board election.

• Renewal levy that saves taxpayers $6.5 million, yet still produces a surplus.

• Reduced school fees, lower pay to participate fees, as well as restored busing, and and long neglected building maintenance.

• Money and resources to the gifted and early intervention programs.

• Raising the academic bar for students and teachers. We are better than #97 in the state.

• Adding ACT/College Essentials class, emphasizing early college credit programs through the high school, Post Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO), Advanced Placement, and Dual Credit courses.

• Balancing class sizes, and strengthening our curriculum.

• Technology plan with 1,100 new computers, wireless access for every building, and laptops to every teacher .

And the best part of all about the things they support from the last election,

ALL of those items were accomplished WITHOUT the aid of those $30,000,000 levies Mr. Malone and company swore we needed or we would go over a financial cliff.

Is this choice really that hard?
