Typical response for S-U-R-E from the Majority of Losers supporting the OSBA takeover of our Board of Education, under the leadership of Charles Anderson, President and Ron Malone, Vice President.<quoted text>Just not happy are you? Crying about Petrey and what he's doing and how much he makes. The brilliance of the last BOE where the ones who chose him and negotiated his contract, live with it and quit your bitchin.
Whatever happened to School Superintendent, Todd Petrey, under the leadership of this MSA majority?
Under the leadership of our previous Board's hiring of Todd Petrey, less than TWO YEARS AGO, Mr. Petrey commented in the DDN where the board is at right now, fiscal responsibility and highest academic achievement, is what he stood for!
Now it appears that School Superintendent Todd Petrey has lost his "footing" for S-U-R-E, and is rapidly sliding downhill toward the same old failed practices of the past two superintendents.
Perhaps you will recall that both David Baker and Gene Lolli attacked Springboro citizens' constitutional rights of free speech in their efforts to force Springboro Citizens to just shut up and live with it! David Baker filed charges against private citizens; Gene Lolli threatened legal charges against Springboro citizens who brought cameras to Lolli's community-wide public presention promoting Inscreased Taxes school levy campaign.
At April 3 board meeting, School Superintendent Todd Petrey, rallied support for Board Policy changes in First Reading limiting our Springboro citizens free speech rights to publicly address our BOE elected officials during pre-arranged participation and participation on agenda items.
The changes to public participation that Mr. Petrey's District Policy Committee members are bringing up for approval vote would require all citizens attending public meeting to sign in stating our name, address, and what we are going to talk about, before the citizens
recognized! That's the same policy that Gene Lolli tried pushing down our throats when he was running the Board of Education.(Some of those citizens who were stopped at the door of the LGI room by former school treasurer Tracy Jarvis still have a copy of the forms that she handed out to private citizens, collecting names address and subject matter IF we expected our "concerns" to be recognized as "worthy" of being heard by our Board of Education elected officials.
This policy change will be discussed further by Mr. Petrey's District Policy Committee at the next Policy Committee meeting on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9, 2014, at 9:00 a.m. This meeting is OPEN to the public; but our school superintendent knows for S-U-R-E that few concerned citizens from the outside community will have opportunity to attend; and hear first hand Mr. Petrey's attempts, through these proposed policy changes, to SILENCE the voices of any opposition to this MSA/SEA takeover of our Board of Education and violation of our free speech and Constitutional rights.
