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.
Unbelievable!
If this isn't grounds for recalling Anderson's board seat, nothing is!

<quoted text>
Thank you Mr. Anderson for your generous donation! FOR THE CHILDREN!
Quid pro quo ("something for something" in Latin) means an exchange of goods or services, where one transfer is contingent upon the other. English speakers often use the term to mean "a favour for a favour"; phrases with similar meaning include: "give and take", "tit for tat", and "you scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours."

This is not a donation, but the hiring of CHILDREN to further Mr. Anderson's personal business concerns while exploiting school district resources to reach a captive target audience.

If the CHILDREN fail to LIKE Mr. Anderson's funeral home, they will not receive the money. Just as if an employee fails to report for work, said employee will forgo the usual payment for their services.

How many adults are donating their time at work?

After all, isn't Charles Anderson mentored by the former insanely popular SHS principal, who professionally served as role model for the past 13 years, mis-using the trust and influence that he had gained from Springboro families to personally further his political agenda of more financial gains for the SEA/union activists, even to the detriment of our students classroom education?
Weideman posts here, calling out Anderson's blatant hypocrisy in an attempt to bribe Boro students by inticing them go his website to gain a mass number of "LIKE"s for his business, Anderson Funeral Homes. Then what happens next? Weideman's post vanishes.

Never forget the blatant hypocrisy of Springboro BOE President, Charles Anderson, and keep spreading the truth that Mr. Anderson's bad choices have lost in him the citizens' trust that he does have ability to make wise decisions putting our students best interest first.

The original post may have disappeared from Topix; but not a chance that Topix can wipe out the truth that we have learned about Mr. Anderson's greed for the love of Money, which is the root of all evil; using our students for personal financial gain.

As shocking as this is, no one ought to be surprised.
Boro's Union Firsters have a long sordid history of claiming they work to help students.

A few examples of Boro students being manipulated and used:
- Mollygate
- Andersongate
- Boro students being manipulated in masse by NFSS in order to provide a cheerleading section for 5 consecutive ill-conceived, unneeded district levys

Excuse Me, but isn't it true that Becky Iverson ran for election to Springboro City Council in 2011 campaigning as a "Conservative"
and then in 2013 endorsing a 93% fire levy tax hike on Springboro families? How quickly these elected officials get on board the New Taxes train once their ticket into the community of unionism is secured!.

he may have two mouths, but only ONE tunnel VISION of re-instating the insanely popular MoreRON's status quo of past failed practices.

Working together with community organizer Jeff Stec, it appears that Petrey BELIEVES there is no limit to breaking down the defenses of people in this community with Stec's Rationalization Indoctrination program, asking where are the values in the BELIEFS of Springboro taxpayers; and why can't this school district pass a new school tax levy?

news flash(not really)--Hruska is a conservative who works with agenbroad on union business, besides kissing up to him on council. Hruska also backed the fire levy.

Elections come and go, and though we may not know the exact percentage, we do know that every community has "Joe and Jane" do-gooders who vote in support of higher taxes (oops, meant to say in support of bigger government) no matter what the issue is; as well as those who directly will gain financially from the Tax Increase and Bigger Government, such as Vendors, Teachers, Firefighters, Police Officers, and City Workers. These are the base tax hike supporters. On top of this base, are the voters who insanely approach voting as if it were a vote for the high school prom king and queen. These voters are the ones who uncritically accept the messages from the government tax proponent that supporting the levy is really about supporting the kids, or the teachers, or our public safety forces. Emotional blackmail plays its role in pushing uncertain voters over the edge, by hitting many hot button issues for residents. This "hitting many hot buttons" is what the hired facilitator, Jeff Stec, will be doing through his special interest focus groups, pitting neighbor against neighbor.

How can it not be a direct conflict of interest for our board president to request Boro students to 'LIKE" his 2 local businesses (Anderson Funeral Homes), in exchange for up to $1000 of financial assistance in helping to sponsor their afterprom?

Of course it is a direct conflict of interest for our newly elected BOEpres to sell advertisaing to Boro students. This just proves that Charles Anderson is not competent in leading our elected officials to do what's right for our school children and community; but acts only in self-interest and SEA/staff financial gain. For the record, check out the April 3 Board Meeting Minutes, including this important vote to financially benefit the SEA staff.

Yes, I'm certainly not denying that.

However, last November 5th, who in this community could've made a prediction that six months later, Boro's students might be manipulated / used by the board's president in order to bolster internet exposure for their business?

In casting a ballot for Anderson, I'm willing to admit that I made a mistake.

How about YOU?
