Vote early vote no on all tax issues. If a school is asking for your money the answer should always No.

Make schools a Tuition funded not theft funded institution.

Voters defeated the levy in November and now they are trying again only 5 months later. Property taxes are running our seniors out of Westerville. A home costing just over $220,000 just 5 years ago is now paying almost $6000.00 in property taxes, the bulk of which goes to the schools to pay for salary, health, dental, vision and retirement benefits that are more than double the highest rate of social security the rest of us can collect. Until the teachers take a meaningful cut we should all vote no on new taxes.
