Unbelievable!For those of you who do not subscribe to the district's emails that describe the goings on within the district, there has emerged a rather interesting tidbit that needs to be shared.
Using the school district's email list and captured audience of 5600 households, our school board president decided to utilize this forum for advertising his funeral home business.
Mr. Anderson has "generously" offered to pledge $1 for every LIKE his funeral home receives on its facebook page for the after prom party up to $1000.
The net effect of this "donation" will be to drive more activity to Mr. Anderson's funeral home website and consequently positively impact more search engine results. Thus for Mr. Anderson's website, when someone in grief is searching for funeral services in Springboro, Anderson Funeral Home will rise towards the top in their google search.
Using our taxpayer funded resources and your position as president of the school board to enrich yourself personally would appear to be a gross misuse of scarce resources and your influence.
Really, you need children to LIKE a funeral home before you will give them the money?
Mr. Anderson, this has a cold, unseemly feel that quite frankly I would not have suspected from you.
If you want to give a donation from your heart, that is all well and good, but this just seems brazen, cold, calculated, and wrong.
Selling death as if it is an ice cream store to children just doesn't quite ring true.
Asking children to partake in your personal enrichment is both odd and troubling.
If this isn't grounds for recalling Anderson's board seat, nothing is!
