Thank you for your insight as to the goings on inside the corrupt Springboro city halls of forced unionism. The more that average citizens know, the more we will grow in the direction of common sense, fairness, unity, sustainability, opportunity, excellence, leadership, confidence, trust, balance and the simply truth....<quoted text>
Over the years, even when I was on city council, I was chastised for speaking up against the never ending school levies, and was chastised for supporting Kelly Kohls, who along with Petroni, and Rigano, gave Springboro 4 years without additional school levies. I used to have friends that supported me when I was on council, till that ultimately found out how I feel about the levies. I am sorry about losing those particular friends, but my view hasn't changed. Yes, I leave myself open for people that dislike me, but I can live with myself and have no trouble sleeping at night.
BTW, I lost my reelection by 10 votes, and I am sure those 10 votes against me were school employees. Life goes on and I can live with that.
Ohio in 2013 is not America in 1938! Government workers already have the protection of civil service laws. With the proliferation of wage and hour laws, environmental laws, anti-discrimination laws, and other workplace protections that do, or easily could
protect governments workers...
IS IT REALLY THAT UNREASONABLE TO SUGGEST THAT PERHAPS ADDING UNIONS ON TOP IS UNNECESSARY AND COSTLY?
Did You Know...
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, OHIO can no longer afford the luxury of public sector collective bargaining. From 2000 to today, Ohio's private sector has lost a net of 612,700 jobs. That means there are over 600,000 fewer workers whose activities generated tax revenues to fund government. During that same period of time Ohio lost a net on ONLY 1,600 government jobs. That means 613,000 fewer workers today are paying for roughly the same size government Ohio had ten years ago in terms of employees. From January 1990 ....Ohio netted a mere 102,000 private sector jobs and 62,100 government jobs.
Is it any wonder that the hidden agenda behind the leadership of former SHS principal was to run our high school like a union shop, making up classes with scant demand to ensure employment for those whose skills were not in demand...but ONLY to ensure job security for union employess at the DEMAND of SEA president, Scott Maney?
