Mr Gale was on the board long enough to raise taxes and then says adios! I don't know Mr Hammond but I hope he is as fiscally responsible as I know Mrs French and Mr Wilms to be.

Hammond's wife is a phys. ed. teacher in the district. He forgets to mention that when he talks to the school board.

Guess whose job is one of the first to get cut if the district has a temper tantrum and makes those threatened cuts if/when the levy doesn't pass?

Mrs. Hammond's job is on the line.

Of course Mr. Hammond wants to be on the board!

Now the library wants a 1.2 - mill INCREASE.

STOP STOP STOP!!!!!

How much money would the library save if they join the Columbus (Franklin) area library program?

Wouldn't Hammond as a board member be a conflict of interest when he votes on teacher contracts or any other issue having to do with money for his wife's department? Is there a policy against a scenario like this? Isn't there a policy against this? That means he would have to abstain from voting on many critcal issues.

Hammond remarks at the school board meetings would be a continuation of the same mentality of an over built, over spent, and over compensated union system where the teachers get hijacked with union dues and the cultural diversity agenda from above.

Mike, that's what I thought too with the Library tax levy increase. I am definitely voting no. I would vote on renewal, but not the increase. The library does well. Getting donations from the community.

That's a lot of tax increases. VOTE NO!

Thanks for the info about Mr. Hammond. Definitely not voting for him. We need less of that nepotism.
