EDUCATE SPRINGBORO ENDORSES CHARLES ANDERSON

http://educatespringboro.org/

Educate Springboro supports a slate of three candidates, Charles Anderson, David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn for Springboro Board of Education. David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn bring their perspective as parents, taxpayers and concerned citizens to provide more balance in board perspectives. We are also confident that with the addition of the business acumen Charles Anderson has accumulated in his many years of service to the community, our district can continue to be sustainable. Keeping our students as the first priority, supporting our teachers, and being the voice of the community in public education is our goal. The addition of Anderson, Bitner, and Vaughn aid us all in accomplishing that goal.

Educate Springboro is also FOR the renewal. Issue 14 is a reduced renewal levy. In good faith, we’ve balanced the budget and met our obligations. When it became clear that the district could meet its needs with less money, the board voted to request lower millage in the renewal levy in November. Not only have we proven that we can live within our means, but now every stakeholder in this district—our students and families, our staff and teachers, and the taxpayers--will benefit.

Please join Educate Springboro in voting

FOR DAVID BITNER for School Board, and

FOR KOLTON VAUGHN for School Board, and

FOR CHARLES ANDERSON for School Board, and

FOR ISSUE 14 for our school district.

Wiedeman's got a very valid point. You're very confident of what Bitner and Vaughn stand for and of what they oppose. Please tell us what you know about Charles Anderson and his background in the funeral home business. Have you ever met Charles Anderson? If you did, what questions did you ask? What kind of person is he? Do you know what Charles Anderson stands for? Do you know what Charles Anderson opposes?
If you're completely dead-set on an exclusive Bitner/Vaughn ticket, then Malone Stuckey and Charles Anderson individually had to have smacked your croquet ball into the tall weeds. It makes absolutely no sense to allow chips to be left on the table just to be grabbed up by the opposition.
In any multi-seat election, vote for those who will do the best job in your opinion. Then fill out the remainder of the ballot with those you believe will likely do the least amount of damage.
Let's stay focused on the issues here... not personal sarcasms and possible what you good old boys think to be clever wit.

The hour is late, and our message is urgent!

Each voter has a valid point, and that is to be respected!

Each voter has the privilege of voting our own conscience of individual responsibility, based on our own value system and beliefs; and No individual is REQUIRED to join a voting block of three, whether it is endorsed by the SEA or the ES, and neither should a private citizen be badgered and harrassed on this blog for exercising free speech. We all have more in common, than we
have differences, and we all go into battle with our own armour,
.. in the direction of November 5th VICTORY for fiscal responsibility and highest academic achievement! That's what
I stand for, and that's why I choose to exercise my right to vote for David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn as our next TWO elected school board representatives!
God Bless America, the land of the free, the good, the bad, and
the ugly! And God Bless You, and Your Family, Too!

Now that's scary!

Not sure what that means, but sure sounds like a

"don't vote for the fearful threesome of Malone/Stuckey/Anderson who are running a dark and angry campaign against Springboro families and taxpaying homeowners."

Most discussion on this blog deals with opinions on unions and taxes/spending. There is little talk about a couple of other key issues that are important aspects of this election. For anyone that has spoken with Vaughn and Bitner, where do they stand on:

- partnering with the Liberty Institute as previously outlined by the BOE and
- the inclusion of controversial subjects in the classroom such as climate change and Creatiionism?

I appreciate any factual knowledge anyone has.

District voters are going to the polls to fill three vacating school board seats. Among Anderson Bitner Malone Stuckey and Vaughn, three candidates will be chosen. Three candidates are going to be elected to Springboro school board regardless of whether the average Mr. & Mrs. Joe Boro make a conscious decision to fill in one, two or (the maximum of) three ballot slots. To leave ANY ballot slots open is akin to leaving chips lying atop the poker table for the opposition to grab up. Obviously, you have no love lost for SEA agenda. If this is true, use your 3rd vote to help bolster the BEST remaining candidate.

As a taxpaying homeowner and school district voter, I keep up
as best as possible on what's going on inside our schools and exactly how my hard earned tax dollars are being spent on education. However, it appears that you are way ahead of the education facts with your severely-misguided opinions.

There is no talk about your stated "concerns" because neither of
these distorted issues "have a place in our November 5th school board electtion, nor do these distorted issues have a place in
neither our "students first" quality classroom education; nor in
our common core standard curriculum. So why in the world would
our TWO Parents Representing Parents school board candidates, David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn waste their valuable time away from
their personal work and family responsibilities addressing
your petty "issues" of politics of personal destruction?

Why not spread the great news thatDavid Bitner and Kolton Vaughn
fully SUPPORT:

*The Amazingly Awesome progress made in the past two years
*Renewal levy that saves taxpayers $6.5 million! Hooray for Us!
*Reduced school fees, lower pay to participate fees, as well as restored busing, and building maintenance.
*Money and resources to the gifted and early intervention programs.
*RAISING THE BAR FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS.
*Adding ACT/College Essentials class, emphasing early college credit programs through the high school, Post Secondary Enrollment Optins (PSEO) Advanced Placement, and Dual Credit courses.
*Balancing class sizes, and strengthening our curriculum.
*Technology plan with 1,100 new computers, wireless access for every building, and laptops to every teacher.

State test results show after 8 years in our district's educational system, only 32% of our children were able to score 75% or better on Ohio Achievement Assessment math tests.

We believe over taxation of the taxpayers is wrong!

We believe in supporting the amount of necessary taxation required to do the job correctly.

We believe that excess tax money in any government body tends to inspire creative ways to spend that money.

We believe transparency, from budgeting to policy formulation to meetings, leads to good governance in all levels of government.

If YOU believe in parents representing parents, putting all students first, ensuring a quality
classroom education while living within the framework of the school district's budget;

I was told Bitner doesn't have a college degree. Is this true?

Please tell me our community really wouldn't elect someone to serve on a board of a $50,000,000 a year business that educates our kids and he doesn't have a college degree?

Clarification please?

Having advanced degrees is no guarantee of intelligence or wisdom, as some running for this office have oft demonstrated in public.

unlike your side that likes to put levies on the ballot every chance they got. Education is no guarantee of having common sense.
