Mr. Malone goes on to say "This changes over time.
I'm not SURE the fit is as good now as when I came to Springboro in 2000. My strengths and the board's expectations of my possition do not match as well asI would like...." You betcha, Mr. Malone is right!...the times they are achanging .... Reforming budgets and levy alternatives, implemented successfully by our reform minded BOE majority representatives, simply is not a good FIT with the high labor cost of forced unionism. Mr. Malone's 40 years of PAST expertise as a professional educator for decades is now ended on a highly successful note; that should bolster his ego enough to go quietly....it's really time to go home! Enjoy!

FYI  Babb is not running for BOE. She withdrew her name.

Doug, have you thought about running? You have obviously done your research and the numbers you have uncovered speak for themselves. The "raise taxes and support any and all levies" crowd are clearly clueless about just everything and anything related to the performance of the school and its administration/staff. They make no compelling arguments at all not to support the current path that Kohls, Petroni and Rigano have implemented.

Of course. Much like former principal Malone, Stuckey is all about reinstalling not only failed policies but also failed personnel. David Stuckey's obvious hardon for the rehiring of Troy Holtrey is but one example.

I don't get by there a whole lot but I'm fairly certain there are sections of pasture land still available along Factory Rd.

Babb hasn't told me that she withdrew her name. Where is the her Public Announcement of withdrawal published? Lisa Babb, as selfappointed Springboro Czar always grandstands to the TV News and DDN; so guess that happened while I was on vacation. Just check the public record and see that Lisa Jo Babb is still listed on the Warren County Board of Elections as Certified Springboro Schools Board of Education candidate; along with her little union buddies Ron Malone, David Stuckey, and Charles Anderson. A recent DDN headline announces big news that: Group seeks control of Springboro board. Two former educators pull petitions to run. Exprincipal, teacher seek to challenge current president. Dave Stuckey says "The bottom line is .... Ron Malone and I are running. We're going to try and find a third person that fits our ideas and what we want to accomplish, Stuckey said. (Charles Anderson is certified as the bottom line....) DDN goes on to report by Lawrence Budd: The ticket would challenge the reelection of Board President Kelly Kohls because only three of the five board seats are up this fall. Election of the three person ticket asalso could end the board majority consisting of Kohls and board members Jim Rigano andDavid Petroni, who were elected two years ago on a ticket that pushed for fiscal reforms in the district and opposed school levies for new money.DDN WOW! with the terrific threesome of Malone/Anderson/Stuckey and their winning campaign agenda of More Increased Taxes for More Tax and Spend on local school government; why would Malone/Anderson/Stuckey need Babbsey hanging around?

This is because it was never meant to happen. Which of the following would be easier?  watching Lisa Babb serve on Boro's BOE for 4 years  mixing oil with water

Just Say No to the UNBRIDLED GREED of Malone/Stuckey/Anderson's bid to gain control of our Children's First Budgeting Success at the polls in November! There is Never a time that our school district leaders need to reemphasis the old Tax and Spend policy of OSBA indoctrination of a continuous stream of new levies!

Just Watching wrote: What is the plan for the union in my humble opinion? 1) Don't negotiate in good faith 2) Attempt to portray the union members as victims of evil BOE 3) Force Strike 4) Create chaos and anxiety for children and families in coming school year 5) Run and elect union members and union sympathizers for BOE as "compromise" candidates (The only ones they will compromise will be the taxpayers) 6) Once union has control of BOE begin negotiations with union friendly BOE 7) Sign new more "FAIR" contract with large increases for union members 8) Inform taxpayers they need to pass massive new levy to "fix" district financial problems. 9) Rinse and repeat

How can you help defeat an indoctrination of liberal ideals sponsored by OSBA in the majority of Ohio's public school districts? Support the alternative! http://osblc.org/

6th Grade OAA Math test PASSING 75% or better  56% FAILING 74% or lower  44% Since the new board and a new administrative team took over and began instituting a program of accountability, the initial results look promising. There is still a long way to go, but it looks like we may have arrested the progressively sinking scores that have plagued our children the past decade. Let us hope that this year continues the reversal and real learning once again takes place.
