Check out this FD Wall of Same on the ambulance fire levy sprks debate blog...<quoted text>
I don't know who the Tea Party head is of Warren County and quite frankly, don't care. The union leaders have much more power and say over the teachers than one BOE member or group of tea partiers.
You get rid of union control and we'll all be able to deal with this on a local level.
OTOH, I'll be hit by a meteor before that ever happens.
Scott Maney, President, Springboro Education Association, among others, endorsed this CCFD Issue 3 which would increase fire levy taxes 93% on every family in our schools.
Check with Tracy Jarvis, our school treasurer, and you will learn that Springboro families are delinquent in paying classroom fees for their own students classroom education. School superintendent, Mr. Petrey, projects his attitude that we the taxpayers should pay this debt from general fund.
At the last board meeting, a Springboro Parent and school board member, Mrs. Kull, brought this $238,000 debt to the attention of voters, via the TV cameras, and many of those watching feel it is the the school treasurer's job to collect these past due fees from parents. Mrs. Kull also reminded the public that everyone in this school district is not rich.
Now Mrs. Jarvis "projects" into the TV camera that she feels "intimidated" asking parents to Pay up for their own students; BUT Mrs. Jarvis is bold and brave in consistently recommending that Springboro should practice "status quo" doing what other schools do---Just promote a New Levy, and increase TAXES on every FAMILY in the school district! Just Tax and Spend and Tax and Spend...Attacking Springboro Parents and taxpaying homeowners just because an affluent community can be emotinally blackmailed into paying more....Does this sound like responsible spending?
