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?

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!.
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.

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.
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?

Who in this community could have predicted that just three months after Anderson was sworn into office, swearing to protect our Constitution, that he would lead our school district to reward a teacher that broke student privacy laws? But that's exactly what happened in the board room, under the leadership of Anderson/Petrey on April 3, 2014, when union classroom teacher (and family member of the politically-influential CC Township Trustee Wade) was awarded a supplemental teaching contract as mentor to our students!

Guess Anderson was so focused on counting the Likes for his funeral home website that Petrey forget to mention that Molly Wray used protected private student information for personal use last August. Favorite union classroom teacher, Molly Wray got a letter of understanding placed in her file, and instead of being suspended for her actions, she is protected by the union employment security plan, and rewarded for bad behavior?

What's the reason Ron Malone is next to useless on this BOE?
Because Malone was selected not because of his platform, but rather because Ron's everybody's best pal; he's "insanely popular". But how effective can such a popuality contest winner be if Malone continues to insist on wearing blinders as to our students' educational priorities?

Why is Charles Anderson ineffective on the BOE?
Because his actions over the last six months have proven Anderson's there not so much to support Boro's schools and our students. On the contrary, evidence of the past few months has added creedence to Charles Anderson, himself, being the primary reason Charles Anderson pursued candidacy for the Springboro school board.

This community should demand a recall of these two!

Wouldn't it be great IF elected officials could be "recalled" just like our automobiles are recalled, once the public learns their "services" are doing harm to others, in best interest only of financial gain for their "business" profits?

Our Public Schools are Springboro's biggest business; but under the leadership of community business man, Charles Anderson, only he and the SEA staff appear to be making a Profit, on the backs of Springboro Taxpayers, and to the detriment of our Springboro students.

1) Molly Wray's violation of state and Federal student privacy laws

The following is a slice of a Springboro schools document which is available to the general public...
"...Ms. Wray unfortunately decided to use protected student information under R.C.3319.321 and FERPA 20 USC 1232g for personal use. The Administration of the Springboro Community City School District discussed this matter with Ms. Wray and disciplined Ms. Wray in the matter they believed was appropriate..."
Terrah Floyd, Treasurer

So what was the manner of discipline Todd Petrey and Lee Vincent believed was "appropriate" for Molly Wray's violation of state and federal student privacy laws? A verbal lecture and a "letter of understanding" in Molly Wray's personnel file, to be removed after six months? For a flagrant offense involving a health teacher who lured recent Boro alumni to go to her personal website by informing them about a.... "really important election for the school board".... only to have web-browsers discover her personal endorsement of Malone Stuckey & Anderson....... UNBELIEVABLE!
I requested a copy of Ms Wray's personnel file, as well as all other files pertaining to her employment with the district, and found nothing in its content regarding this incident.

Between these separate scenarios, what factor makes the key difference? Springboro Community City Schools' administration is dominated by former educators who predominately lean extemely hard to the Left. Malone and Stuckey, especially, lean extremely hard to the Left. If liberals are really good at one thing they're really good at covering the backs of their fellow liberals.

I've got a bridge to sell you if you honestly believe Boro's superintendent and HR mgr, in any effective way, imposed discipline on Molly Wray for her violation of student privacy laws.

I've got a 2nd bridge to sell you if you believe Boro's superintendent & HR mgr's letter of understanding (which apparently no longer exists in Wray's file) set any sort of effective precedent for helping to curtail student information privacy breaches in the future.

don't need a bridge; and why does anyone think that wasting $12,000 of taxpayers money for Petrey's community engagement program can "sell" the values of beliefs in this school district that "we need a new levy tax increase" just because our community of unionism thinks our professional educators are wonderful?

Ad hominem attacks like this are what many pro-union liberals lower themselves to when they lack an ability to conjur a debate counterpoint.
