No Doubt... this MaloneAndersonStuckey flocking together is just a continuation of the March 2012 community-wide protest against putting STUDENTS FIRST; in their misguided efforts to re-instate Malone's status quo union first failed practices for the PAST 13 years.
Why would our community want to go back to those good old boy days of fake budget crisis and a continuous stream of unnecessary levies?
Why would school board candidate, Ron Malone, who has been a SHS principal for 13 years, want to take our school board's new reform-minded, winning philosophy of STUDENTS FIRST/RESPONSIBLE BUDGETING, back to enslavement of the union first/old, outdated collective bargaining rights, that are proven to be WRONG for our school children and community?
Hasn't Mr. Malone proven to our students and community members that his priority in education is increaing the QUANTITY of courses provided by a union teacher in every classroom (no matter how small the enrollment nor high large the tax bill to the community).... instead of increasing opportunities for all students to receive the highest QUALITY education courses, allowing each student to achieve the highest individual academic success? Isn't STUDENTS FIRST/RESPONSIBLE BUDGETING priority in every decision made by the Board of Education the best educational practice that could better help our students in college and beyond?
Why would Mr. Malone want to lead his team-mates, Mr. Stuckey and Mr. Anderson, in undermining the agenda of our current school board, who are successfully doing what's right for our students first, while living within the financial means of our children's first budget?

What are the conflicts of interest for Malone, Stuckey and Anderson?
Voters in this Springboro school district should ask school board candidate, Ron Malone, why he is leading his team of Mr. Stuckey and Mr. Anderson AWAY from the best interests of our STUDENTS FIRST/RESPONSIBILE BUDGETING?

Isn't it true that Mr. Malone has only ONE interest, and that is continuing to work in the best interest of financial gain of the Springboro Education Association (union member school employees)?

I'll vote for parents. I would NEVER vote for the union to control the UNION and never will the UNion put students first. Everyone knows that the union must go in order for education to take priority over itself. The ticket of three will destroy education in Springboro so it Must be Bitner and Vaugn and Vaugh and Bitner only. If the other three take seats we will pull all of our kids out immediately. I will not have my children further threatened, abused and uneducated.

I will mortgage my home to get them an education that works and that is and has never been with Stuckey and Malone.

Voters in this community need to be reminded every day from now till November 5 that union school board candidates, Ron Malone and David Stuckey,
are retired professional educators, with a combined 66 years of work in the government schools of unionism. Springboro families and taxpaying homeowners cannot expect that these two retired educators of collective unionism philosophy have the required WILL to develop the new SKILL of our CURRENT, highly successful
STUDENTS FIRST/RESPONSIBLE BUDGETING Board of Education representaives.

Spread the Good News! Remember in November to VOTE for the ONLY two school board candidates who are already on BOARD with our current board's
Chidren's First budget!

Spread the Good News! Children's First Budget Works... in the best interest of our Students first, our quality classroom teachers, and all community taxpayers!

Why would any "grown up voter" (no matter your age or occupation) not VOTE FOR OUR CONTINUED CHILDREN'S FIRST BUDGETING SUCCESS? If our community is SURE that we care about the future of education in our schools and community....Then Prove it on November 5 and Vote For school board candidates who are PARENTS REPRESENTING PARENTS!

DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN should be our next two elected Students First/Responsible Budgeting Board of Education representatives.
VOTE Responsibly on NOVEMBER 5th!

What can PETRONI-RIGANO do to assure a quality education for our children in a tough economy?

Number One: CHILDREN FIRST. Budget for educational support services for children first. No holding parents hostage over things like busing and classroom fees.

Number Two: REBUILD CONFIDENCE. Petroni-Rigano will make sure the strife and waste caused by FIVE unnecessary levy attempts never occurs again; (and the TV camera will be turned on so that hard working district taxpayers can hold local school government leaders accountable).

Number Three: CONTROL SPENDING. While their opponents were asking for unnecessary taxes, Petroni-Rigano analyzed the budget, presenting Twelve concrete budget saving steps worth over $30 million.

The result: a $6M surplus! lower fees! and restored services for children!(so much more for our school children than just "adequate!")

- EXACTLY two years later, because of a ton of hard work from both the board and administration, the economic outlook of Springboro Schools has never been better.

- EXACTLY two years later, because of a ton of hard work from both the board and administration, Boro's school children now have many items and services that were long overdue due.
Such items and services include:

$1.1 million for an 11 additional new buses bought 10 last year.
$1.5 million in computers, wifi, backbone, which = 350 laptops and 1,000 computers
$3.7 million in capital improvements
$2.4 million in text books and new curriculum and text book adoptions

This level of infrastructure and curriculum support improvement would have been next to impossible with the prior board's history of grievous budget inaccuracies.

- EXACTLY two years later, because of a ton of hard work from both our board and administration, this district's voters are being asked to renew the prior millage, BUT WITH A 15% ROLLBACK TO THE TAXPAYERS!!

- EXACTLY two years later. What ever happened to those summer of 2011 voices who desperately tried to take Petroni apart because he and his wife home schools?
News flash: The shoe is now on the other foot.

How fortunate are we in Springboro to have elected in November 2011, two board representatives, Jim Rigano and David Petroni, who have proven to Voters that every BOE decision made, since January 2012, has been in the best interest of ALL students first, as if ALL students were ONE of their very own! People in this community owe a debt of gratitude and special thanks to our board members (who sacrifice personal time taken from their own family and work responsibilities) using their expertise in leadership, keeping our Springboro schools both safe and affordable, AND a great place to Live, Work, Learn, and Play Sports!

Now ONCE again....
at the polls on November 5, 2013, our Springboro families and our students need ALL voters to elect TWO more parents, as the only TWO board representatives who will continue in the direction of making decisions for ALL students, as if each ONE is their own.
Special Thanks and Appreciation are due our school board candidates, David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn,
(and their family members) for standing with all Springboro families for Students FIRST; and non-union controlled school board candidates, Bitner/Vaughn, should be elected as our next TWO students first school board representatives.

why would anyone who cares about the future of our schools and community not join the celebration of our children's first budget success and look forward to a better harmony in this community?

Black is absolutely apropos for the Malone Stuckey Anderson yard signs. Black represents the color of mourning. No one in town realizes this fact any better than Charles Anderson.

The color black for Malone Stuckey Anderson signs also represent collective community mourning for advancement of Malone-Stuckey Union First initiatives, as well as erasing a great deal of the last two years worth of Petroni-Rigano's Children First common sense budget philosophy.

So long as a former principal finds success at perpetuating this distorted pied-piper legacy as being "insanely popular" with Springboro high school students, why in the world would such a former principal ever have to be concerned about having an image as a board candidate who's a ... "responsible professional"?

Rumor has it that Malone/Stuckey did not force Lisa out of the school board campaign, but coerced Lisa to step down, so as not to divide the votes; rumor has it that Malone/Stuckey/Anderson union controlled school board plans include a big "inside job" for Lisa as a reward for her support.
Could be that Lisa is promised the inside job of a newly formed board committee as head of the citizens advisory financial committee (just like she was for former superintendent David Baker and the good old boys during the bad old days of our previous union controlled school board). This committee would work closely with SEA president, Scott Maney, to recommend to the board all the WANTS of the union adults first; while pushing aside the NEEDS of our STUDENTS FIRST.
Stay Alert Voters-- no matter which way the school board election goes, Ron Malone's campaign to gain control of our school tax dollars for Scott Maney's union financial gain will never end...
No one should be forced to pay tribute to a union in order to get or keep a job...and no school board candidate should be elected on the basis of putting the re-emphasis on the ever-increasing dollar value of a union teacher in every classroom.

Now is the time to remember that approximately 67% of households in our voting district do not have children enrolled in Springboro Schools; AND have no idea that Malone and Stuckey are retired school employees;
........time to get out in your neighborhood and spread the good news that David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn are the only two non-union school board candidates....
and that David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn are PARENTS REPRESENTING PARENTS and should be our next TWO elected board representatives.

VOTE NOVEMBER 5 for the only TWO Students First/Responsible Budgeting school board candidates!
David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn are the only TWO Parents Representing Parents school board candidates that are a good "fit" with our children's first budgeting 21st century education!
