Good work NO voters and responsible citizens!
Don't jump the gun here. There are still some Montgomery Co votes to count. Since they are Settlers Walk expect most to be YES.

I'd like to thank everyone who helped defeat this levy! It was only a 249 vote difference so I'm sure we'll see it again in August. Keep up the fight!

The next step we need to do is an immediate court injunction against them to stop removal of busing due to public safety issues and to demand their cuts elsewhere. This I think we can get majority support for. I am reviewing this currently with my legal counsel and will get back with more detail. Great job everyone. Please stay in touch and remember we must get all new board members to make real permanent change.

There probably aren't 250 YES votes in Mont Co. so I expect it has failed, but just be aware there are more votes to be counted.

No, Old Croney is correct. There is 1 precinct in Montgomery County and it hasn't been reported yet.

If you're a mom, how can you vote no on the levy meaning bussing is cut and classroom size will increase to maximum levels?

Did anyone really think it would not be close? You need to have confidence though and saying things like the other side is going to win is not productive. And I can practically guarantee that this blog brought in 250 new No votes. Good job everyone.

Well, you make another false statement. This system started the idiocy of building stadiums with medicalk dollars. We even have a Super who gave a talk about it.(Free stadium renovations and more!!!)

So your keeping up with the Jones just sank. They are copying our stupidity. If you need to be educated more on the subject there are plenty of articles here: http://www.topix.com/forum/city/springboro-oh...
My facts are backed up.....what about yours???
Your links provide no "facts" to back up your point of view so I don't understand the reason behind your post. I am done trying to have an honest debate with you.

Old Croney IS correct - Montgomery County is not counted. :( Larry Budd just wrote an article saying they are cautiously optimistic.

Final results from Montgomery county. If I did my math right it narrowed the margined down to 137 vote difference.

Well, did you? Hmmmm? DO YOU PEOPLE REALLY CARE ABOUT YOUR KIDS EDUCATION AT ALL....or just that they are in sports? It is comical what you post about! ALWAYS ABOUT PAY FOR PLAY. Upset that you have to pay a couple of hundred of dollars for your kids extra-curricular activities. It is like you are all thirty something year olds trying to relive your high school sports years.
And sometimes you post about that you may not be able to sell your house when you move on with your job transfer in a couple of years. All about money then. You have absolutely NO compassion for others in this community who have no children in the system and want to see the waste cut out.
Get over it and get on with the job of getting behind us and making sure this school system is financial sound and makes prudent decisions.
I happened to watch the track practice at the high school yesterday. I must have seen six men standing around barely able to bend over because of their fat bellies doing "some kind" of coaching to kids that looked like they really needed some. Have you ever bothered to check out the HALF A MILLION of dollars spent a year on assistant track coaches and other waste??? If they get their acts together and cut where they need to, they may get my vote in the future BUT NOT NOW. Quit your complaining and belly-aching about paying sports fees and losing value on your homes. Your obsession with this makes you look idiotic!
I do care about education only, not sports. It just seems that many no voters bring up that they do not want to pay for someone elses kids playing sports. That the stadium is extravagent etc. I'm concerned about acedemics and classroom size and loosing good teachers who's pay may fall behind other schools. The stadium is done, it's over. Let's concentrate on acedemics.
