In the early days of our nation, the majority of Americans received their education at home. Teaching was done by the parents or a private tutor if they were fortunate enough to afford one. The Puritans were the first to identify the need for a public education and established schools across New England. After the American Revolution, Thomas Jefferson argued to build an educational system funded by taxpayer dollars, but it wasn’t until 1852 when the first compulsory education laws were passed in Massachusetts, which by 1918 lead to every American child being required to attend public schools.

The responsibility of governing public schools was separated from the city council early on in the history of education. As the demand for public education began to increase, selectmen separated educational governance from city governance and appointed committees in each town to govern local school systems. In 1837, Massachusetts established the first State Board of Education, though the authority remained at the local level as many were distrustful of the state’s ability to represent local interests. The Massachusetts model of governing education spread throughout the colonies and its separation from city council has persisted into the present day.

On the surface this would seem to be an ideal model for many of the challenges we face as a nation (including the compulsory healthcare laws which coincidentally originated in Massachusetts). A National Network of State Boards of Education whose authority rests in the hands of local School Boards elected by the community. But when you dig a little deeper into the disconnect between the city and the schools, you see more than a separation of governance. You see the silos which Lori Kershner identified on her website which calls for “better cooperation between the city and the schools.”

Yes, I support any politician who openly collaborates with their constituents, including Lori Kershner. Once we manage to pry open the doors of our government they'll have a hard time locking us out.

I'm voting for Lori as well, but for a different reason. I do like council people that don't return phone calls. That's rude and irresponsible.

Voters who are for electing local government officials who are responsible spenders of our hard-earned money should look carefully beyond the symbolism of "Conservative Republican" claim of township trustee candidate, Dale Lamb.

Shouldn't local government leaders have only the best interest of serving their constituents, regardless of political party interest? Shouldn't our local government leaders be Independent Thinkers, instead of flocking together to protect party politics for the Union?

Vote to Re-Elect the Township Trustee that has a proven record of putting Springboro Families best interest first, keeping our family homes both safe and affordable! It is a Good Thing!

Remember on November 5, 2013, to vote for the re-election of Cathy Anspach, the only Township Trustee that voted against putting the May 2013 fire levy tax increase of 93% on the ballot!

Remember ONLY re-electing Cathy Anspach will ensure protection of Township homeowners against a status-quo business as usual pro-union controlled Clearcreek Township local government.

Vote to Re-Elect Cathy Anspach on November 5, 2013!

All I can say is that I have known LAMB & WADE for a long time and their goal is to get as much out of the taxpayers as they can while saying things like "I am there for you." I am sorry but they BOTH are sheep is WOLFS clothing and they need to leave. Look at the facts.

In the past year, WADE & LAMB allowed the fire chief to place a 4.5 mil levy to the voters of Springboro and Clearcreek Township – this with a reserve of seven million dollars in the bank. In my opinion, the trustees, administrators, and fire chief act as charlatans. Their demeanor is palter. They fabricate to save their own careers and this behavior must end.

Over the past few years, Clearcreek Township has made the headlines, and not in a positive manner. Issues of a trustee selling insurance to the township employees,(a OHIO ETHICS VIOLATION), WADE purchasing property with TAXPAYERS money for a new park, while lining his friends pocket with over a million dollars of TAXPAYERS money and not completing the Patricia Allen Park, a police officer fired for following orders and the trustees paying over $90,000 for their defense to fire him, failed policies in the fire department and even closing a fire station, an assistant fire chief accused of identity theft,(A FELONY) and the trustees being charged with violating the Ohio Open Public Meeting act, which they are currently having to defend with taxpayers funds.

It is time to do some real soul searching and look past the LAMB & WADEs pseudo platform. Cathy Anspach is the ONLY trustee who took the HIGH ROAD, is ethical, and has used SOUND JUDGMENT.

You have to ask yourself – has WADE & LAMB lost their moral compass? Are they really looking out for your best interest? The citizens of both SPRINGBORO & CLEARCREEK vote this November on the Clearcreek Township Trustees. Please consider voting for Steve Muterspaw & Cathy Anspach. They WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN – as WADE & LAMB has.

I see Lairson, with the help of Vomacka has started their smear campaign against Lorie Kershner, who hopefully will defeat Lairson and her lackluster performance on council, much like the bully, Vomacka. VOTE for Kershner for ward #1 council person !

odd that VOMACKA is supporting LAIRSON after it became obvious that AGENBROAD was throwing his support (and union money) behind Lairson...Vomacka is a bigger fool than I thought.

Vomacka is a waste of space, time, energy, and money. He should be REMOVED from the City Council.

Already done, along with Lairson, another deadbeat. But, the good old boys are still in charge, unfortunately.
