Contrary to your point of view, I saw it differently.Wasn't the first board meeting of 2014 AMAZING?! No Kelly Kohls up there and the pizza guys as the minority. Completely different vibe. So relaxed. GLORIIOUS! Thank you, God, for the change!
There was no Change, Because there was no Progress made in Putting Our Students First while maintaining fiscal integrity; What I saw was the Division between the School Community of Employees and the Community of School Taxpayers greatly broadened by Mr. Anderson and Mr. Malone, who voted the Board members representing the community as a whole out of elected office of President and Vice President, as the normal orderly process of transferring school board elected officials should be done, in order to meet the needs of ALL Constituents.
I don't know what you see as "Glorious" in a Three member panel of board members who are willing to represent only the 400 or so union member "Educators."
Our school staff simply cannot Vote themselves Increased Taxes at the polls; and the
direction that Mr. Anderson is headed is “no where but failure” IF he allows Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey to "push" him into promoting a New Tax Increase on the ballot for increased teacher wages and compensation/benefits.
I do join you in Thanking God for America, the land of the free and home of the brave; and the orderly transition of power, based on our free elections for the people, by the people, and of the people. I was expecting nothing less than the Professional Service of Respectful behavior, which was certainly delivered by our board members David Petroni and Jim Rigano.
Special Thanks are due to both Mr. Petroni and Mr. Rigano for Standing Up For Kids First, Standing with Springboro Families and Taxpaying Homeowners doing the Right Thing for our school children and community; even though doing the Right Thing, being Honest about what is needed through 2017, is not the Popular Thing with our Board members Mr. Anderson, Mr. Malone, Mr. Stuckey, and our 400 or so SEA school employees.
I do agree with you that this orderly transition of our locals school government's elected officials was a "Completely different vibe" from the election of board members David Petroni and Jim Rigano. There were no TV broadcasts of our public school board meetings during the time of Ron Malone's protest of Board authority to remove an under-performing high school principal out of his "comfort zone" (of low principles dumbing down our kids' curriculum) by providing opportunity for Mr. Malone to improve his skill set by accepting greater responsibility.(Did you ever read the letter of Professional recommendation of Mr. Malone's promotion to this great new job in District Office that was written by our board? Did you know that this job was such a great opportunity that Mr. Malone had second thoughts about what he had missed out on, and then Applied for the same job that he had thrown in the board members face, AFTER the job had already been filled?)
Yes, that's just another example of the stinking success of former princiPal Ron, who has now made good on his March 2012 promise of voting for revenge against our children first budget reform minded school board representatives.
By the way, Did YOU notice how RELAXED was the Presentation of our high school
students "Program of Studies" (check the school website for full details)?
What a "Gloriously Professional" presentation Compared to former principal,
Ron Malone, Program of Studies presented in 2012! we did not have TV broadcasts of board meetings then; There's NO way the community as a whole could know the True History of Ron's past failed practices NOR his 2012 Vote for Revenge against Springboro parent, Kelly Kohls,( the first parent to get "behind the scenes; questioning why Ron Malone, as SHS principal, was running our high school like a union shop.) Not a chance that taxpayers are going to forget Ron Malone's lies!
