Just goes to show you guys just how out of touch you guys are. DOUG, after all your efforts of trying to ruin the credibility of MSA and the estimated $50,000 you spent on the campaign, you have become transparent and All of Springboro knows.

Yes, Doug, all of that "hard earned politicking publicity money" just went down the tubes. I heard that Doug had to jump the fence Friday night for the football game to make up for it! Way to go MSA!!!!

My congratulations to Mr. Anderson, Mr Malone, and Mr. Stuckey for the victory they attained this evening.
Analyzing the results shows that the triumvirate rode the wellspring of support for the levy to victory.
I look forward to four years of providing a voice for the loyal opposition.
The loyal oppositon already has a "voice" and look forward
to the great bloviator giving his one voice a rest."

Simply put: Shut Up. The time has now come to just put a sock in it.

The levy? Clearly the voters didn't like the direction of the district the last two years. Pure and simple. The voters didn't like seeing the district day after day being on the front pages of the newspapers. The majority was taking the community in the wrong direction......now hopefully we are in the direction of normalcy....
Not necessarily, those who vote for levies also support MSA, the fact that Mr. Anderson outpolled all of the candidates is telling as well, one would have expected the well known and equally well respected Mr. Malone to lead the pack.

The renewal levy that provided a tax reduction for everyone was a winner from the get go, who does not like having their taxes reduced ?

Congrats on winning the "Most Clueless Comment" award of the evening!! When both sides included him on their ticket, even without permission from your side, it shouldn't surprise anyone that he received the most votes!! Your constant attack on Malone is tiresome.

Don't you worry, "Educate Springboro"; I will be sure to vote for Malone, Stuckey, and Anderson SEPARATELY.
Wendy Verba Telatko Interesting. Educate Springboro supports Charles Anderson because of his business acumen" $ but don't support 2 men who have given lives to the education of our children. "Children first"? Bittner, Vaughn, and Petroni. Don't make me laugh. So much for full public disclosure when the candidate in question wasn't even informed.
Wendy why don't you run for this office since you are queen of all that is perfect in Springboro?

If the board could prevent someone from speaking it should be that Bindaman B she curses almost every sentence and OMG here she is on Facebook as her premier performance as the President of Housewives of Springboro. What a foul mouthed person she is and yet they keep inviting her back to speak at almost every meeting.
Look at these last names
Lynn Keen Greenberg He's too busy on Topix!
Bethe Goldenfield He's got too much baggage that could be brought out against him in a campaign, so he sponsors his surrogates. Kind of like KK.
LisaandSteve Morrison Have you done a background check on him ? Interesting...
Stephanie Young Bindemann Yep, not a stellar reputation...
Lynn Keen Greenberg Google is an amazing thing.
Karleen Materne Bc he's a wussy!
Afsoon Khatibloo-Mcclellan He likes to be seen as some huge benefactor around here. I do not believe for a minute that he does any of it from some altruistic POV. He is just as manipulative as the stooges, he's just not as smart. Honest to God, my blood pressure is off the charts every time one of their names comes up. Seriously.
These housewives can speak all day and night yet, say nothing of value.
"Look at these last names"?? Are you kidding? I'm not sure I should expect anything more from someone who doesn't have the cajones to own their opinion. And yet you claim the "Housewives" have nothing of value to say. Yup, you're right...because you bring SO MUCH VALUE to the table. I try not to stoop to name-calling, but anything more complicated may elude your understanding. So I'll keep it simple for you...you're a dumb ass.

PS - these "Housewives" just schooled you and your type...check out the election results.

telling community members what a hypocrite the Great Bloviater,paid for by private citizen, really is .... leading with the ES endorsement of Anderson... in the direction of deceit and manipulating Springboro voters.

MSA will listen, the question is: will the current board finally wake up and see the direction the voters have chosen.

First, as already stated, the fact that many people (you included) kept stumping for Anderson explains this difference. Notice that the number is only 400 more than Malone. One would conclude that out of the 2300 people that voted for V/B, only 400 were moved to also vote for Anderson. Seems like the signs put up Saturday along with your V/B/A drum beating had very little influence.

Second, if people were only interested in having their taxes reduced they would have voted NO for the levy (a move that would have reduced them more than voting yes) as almost 25% of the people did.

Was the decision to stay away from the public debates a factor? I think it's safe to say it wouldn't have made the numbers any worse. No debate means No choice

The one take away should be that ES put alot of money as well as their backing which was just wasted money. Not very good budgeting if you ask me. Their little stunt on Saturday was seen for as what it was. A desperate attempt by a desperate organization.

The people of Springboro have spoken loudly and clearly.

A love song dedicated to MSA...this is getting CREEPY/WIERD!

First the song is Every Breath You Take (off the album Synchronicity)

Second, you forgot:

"Since you've gone I been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but it's you I can't replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby please"

CREEPY!!!

With all the fear mongering and doom and gloom before the election, what did you expect?

One needs to only look at the guiding principals of MSA:
"Promote School-Community Unity
Re-Define the Role of a School Board Member
Promote Internal School District Unity
Promote a Variety of Educational Opportunities for All Students
Make Balanced, Fiscally Responsible Decisions
Make Decisions Considering the Needs, Interests, and Concerns of
the Community as a Whole"

In those guiding principals the word "unity" is used twice. Not ONCE is it used on the B/V site.

Maybe "Unity" just isn't their thing....

CELEBRATE OUR SUCCESS

Springboro, OH

#28831 Nov 6, 2013
It's the BIG DAY AFTER, or THE NEXT DAY, whichever side you are on in the direction of fair balanced! As in all elections, there are winners and losers; with all sides getting something they want; but none taking it all!

Our schools and community WON BIG with the approval of the REDUCED renewal levy that saves taxpayers $6.5 million! Hooray for Us!

Now that our school's financial success is stable for many years to come... with no NEW money needed for year...there will be no fear in our school district leaders' commitment to ensure that the children of the Springboro community receive an excellent education while keeping the costs of that education affordable, by carefully adhering to responsible spending!

Our Paid for by Educate Springboro endorsement of former BOE Member and 2013 school board candidate, Charles Anderson, brought victory to Educate Springboro's choice of candidates, as their call to endorse Anderson as the third candidate influenced voters to push Anderson into First Place, with the pro-union retired educators Ron Malone and David Stuckey, trailing behind the successful businessman, Charles Anderson, as our FIRST elected board representative! HOORAY FOR EDUCATE SPRINGBORO!

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. We can now move ahead for the next two years with a fair and balanced school board; TWO board members supporting using our school tax dollars to deliver the highest level of education by raising the bar well past the state minimums, striving to challenge our children, parents, and staff to reach higher....

And we now have elected TWO board members who are former school employees, who want to change the Students First direction in which our current board is successfully leading, pledging to re-define the role of a school board member, putting the re-emphasis on the value of the adult educators first. And that's a re-instate Malone's status quo thing.... And a detriment to our Students first 21st century quality classroom education.

Mr. Anderson, who was projected during the campaign to be the Third wheel, easily rolled into FIRST place winner with the ES endorsement.
Now, as ONE individual among the FIVE individual
board members, Mr.Anderson will be the odd man out, OR,
the swing vote in every decision that our "Students First VS Adult Educators First" board representatives will consider in the best interest of our Students First! And that's going to be a very divisive thing for our schools and community!

So, we've only just begun the big controversial issues that will be dealt with in our Springboro
School Board of Education regular business meetings, conducted in an open and transparent
way in front of the TV cameras!

Threats? Please provide some evidence and don't just make innuendo's.

Are you really disappointed??

Were you also disappointed over the threats and harassment by MSA fans when Kelly Kohls was on the board?
