What is your dull minded point in continuing to mindlessly repeat of your status quo complaint during the school board campaign that is now in the past?
Exactly WHAT point is yours, other than sounding like a fanatic who can't change the past and won't change the subject?

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.
WE BELIEVE that Springboro Schools Board of Education newly elected officials, Mr. Anderson, Mr Malone, and Mr. Stuckey,
can no longer nit pick words on a campaign sign, nor words on a website, nor can Mr. Malone no longer keep his poor performance job reviews hidden from his constituents "inquiring minds."
WE BELIEVE that Taxpaying Citizens ACTIONS of Voting NO NEW TAXES FIVE TIMES speaks louder for Fiscal Conservative Mindset than the "conservative" word being omitted on the MSA website.
WE BELIEVE that leveraging school fees, services, personnel decisons, safety, orinfrastructure maintenance to threaten famiies in order to influence regular r levy eletions is wrong.
WE BELIEVE CHILDREN'S FIRST BUDGETING WORKS FOR OUR STUDENTS,
QUALITY CLASSROOM TEACHERS, ALL SCHOOL EMPLOYEES and COMMUNITY

I didn't see an answer to the question.
#28928 Nov 7, 2013
SPIN,SPIN,SPIN. Bill would be proud.
Anderson is with Malone and Stuckey.
Please provide where Mr. Anderson supports Children's First Budgeting. He ran with Malone/Stuckey. Their campain was one in the same. He publicly denounced any ties to the B/V campain.
"This, once again, demonstrates that the Bitner/Vaughn Campaign and
Educate Springboro do not follow campaign laws nor do they have ethics.
Mr. Anderson strongly denounces this and has requested that the signs be taken down as he did NOT authorize this in any shape or form.
Furthermore, Mr. Anderson is NOT endorsing the Bitner/Vaughn ticket." - www.msa4springboro.com

This was in response to a poster who was "mindlessly repeating" their point. No hostility toward them?
#28930 Nov 7, 2013
So someone states slurs and waves a flag in a BOE meeting and it's freedom of speech and ok behavior. But if you do it against "student first" supporters the first amendment is out the door?
Guess they should have been waving a confederate flag when they said what they did, maybe it would have been acceptable then.
#28931 Nov 7, 2013
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT B/V WON?
I believe the actions taken by electing in MSA in a LANDSLIDE speaks volumes toward what direction the voters want to take.
#28932 Nov 7, 2013
Bitner and Vaughn were absolutely correct in that they had no business in attending any debate sponsored by the SEA. Our household has children in Springboro's schools and we have witnessed years upon years of manipulation on the part of the teachers union. I pity the blind befuddled parents of district students who supported Malone and Anderson especially. Congratulations! You have just been U-S-E-D!! Be sure you don't forget to give your kids great big union-indoctrinating hugs and kisses before they turn in tonight!

You Are Wrong but I don't find it strange that you are wrong; it's just more of the same old malone status quo, that is all
It's time to forget the MSA campaign; AND the distortion of the campaign flyer that pledges "promoting solidarity" and to "build internal school district unity." The role of the elected BOE
elected official is to consider BOTH the NEEDS of the school district AND the needs of the constituents.
Don't be deceived into thinking that the two retired Educators,
Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey, have the board room power to re-define the role of the BOE elected official to SERVE ONLY the WANTS of the SEA president, Scott Maney.
The Educators Representing Educators newly elected minority are among our FIVE elected officials, and the THREESOME OF MSA CAMPAIGN each have ONE voice in the board room; and that one voice is accountable to the community as a whole; not accountable to only the Wants of the union teachers in our children's classrooms.
It is possible that Sarah Jobe has severely misled Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey in the direction of "union solidarity" in the public business of the Board of Education; but it is also possible that community taxpayers may voice a loud "wake-up" call once our insanely popular retired educator gets into the board room.
The MSA Threesome campaign supporters need to understand that
Mr. Anderson is NOT a retired educator (as Mr.Malone and Mr.Stuckey)and he now stands alone as ONE of the Three elected officials who is NOT an Educators FIRST board representative.
Mr. Anderson's service AND loyalty as an elected official NOW
belongs to ALL Springboro Families and Taxpaying homeowners in the school district; and there is NO OBLIGATION of LOYALTY Or SPECIAL SERVICE to the TWO Educators First board representatives, Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Perhaps you're blinded by MSA Tunnel vision?
Those of us with a broader reform minded vision see
Boro Future Bright clearly.
#28935 Nov 7, 2013
No hostility... just more "no debate means no choice" mindlessly repeating the same old dull minded point, same old status quo fanatic ramblings, complaining about the past that can't be changed and refusing to change the subject.

Public schools serve the community. The community funds and supports public schools. The partnership between our schools and community can be described in many ways. It is a legislated relationship. It is a traditional bonding. It is symbiotic. It is real.
The Springboro school district stands in an almost unheard of position today. Even after plans to invest millions in technology, curriculum, buildings and buses, and even after providing every employee with raises, we are financially prepared to give something back to the taxpayer – to give back to our community by reducing their tax burden. The renewal levy on the ballot in November will be set at a lower millage rate to reduce taxes generated by that levy by nearly 15 percent.
With every step, we are proving that this district with its record of excellence is sustainable with an even lower tax burden. This is almost unheard of in school or local government today. The idea seems so foreign to some that there is even a call in our community to keep the renewal for the full amount.
There is an assumption that if we are cutting the taxes; we must be cutting back in our schools. This is simply FALSE. The following needs are in the current budget through 2017:
• high school busing restored
• over $2 million in text books and new adoptions
• over 2.1 million for new buses
• over $3.7 million in capital needs and deferred maintenance
• over $1.5 million in technology (100% WiFi, 1,000 computers, 350 teacher laptops)
• over $7.5 million for our staff in raises and benefit changes
These are met in the five-year forecast even with the lower renewal levy. This reduction of almost 15 percent millage is equal to $1,353,800 per year that we are giving back to our community.
How is this possible?
• The May 2013 five-year forecast included a surplus of $7.55 million in 2017.
• After the approval of contracts with the teachers, classified and exempt staff, the five-year forecast still reveals a surplus of $7.2 million in 2017.
• Springboro Community City Schools will receive 6.5% more in 2013-2014 than in the previous year from the State of Ohio (approximately $828,000) as well as 10.5% more in 2014-2015 (approximately $1.2 million).
• Since 2012, 2013, the district has received $3.5 million per year as a result of a pipeline that has been completed.
• A second pipeline is possible; however, the district’s current forecast assumptions DO NOT include the additional funding it may bring to the district.
Not only have we proven that we can live within our means, but now every person in this district—our children and families, our staff and teachers, and the taxpayers–will benefit.
This is significant when placed in the context of five failed levies that sought to raise our taxes by up to $45,000,000. Our community sent a clear message again and again that there could be no new taxes. The board—elected by that same community—remembers that we are all on the same side in the pursuit of true educational attainment. As it became clear through our due diligence into the finances of the district that we could meet our needs with less money, the board voted to request lower millage in the renewal levy in November.
If you budget $300 for a monthly car payment but you find the car you need with every option for $250, do you tell the dealer you’d still like to pay more? Of course not. We’re not selling a rundown clunker at the reduced price. We are meeting and exceeding state mandates as well as local expectations. We are building a technology backbone, investing in computers, curriculum, buses and buildings – we are putting children first. Most important, we are being honest about what is needed through 2017. This is reform at the local level, and this is working together toward sustainability.

5 years? MY ARSE!!
MSA get sworn in January 2014. By Labor Day 2014, the new board will have created enough useless "needs" to blow the current budget completely out of the water. Then they'll try to find the gall to approach district voters to ask for additional millage in the form of a spring 2015 levy.
#28938 Nov 7, 2013
Again, how am I wrong? You haven't produced any proof. I produced quotes from the paper while you just bloviate.
#28939 Nov 7, 2013
At least I'm not under the delusion of the outcome of the election. MSA ALL THE WAY!
#28940 Nov 7, 2013
The landslide of MSA mud slingers speaks volumes in the direction of "re-instate Malone's" status quo failed practices; but that dirty business has already been cleaned out of Mr. Malones
"hidden" desk drawer.
I believe the power of indoctrination of minds by the Signs of
Advertising Malone/Stuckey/Anderson speaks volumes in the direction of the success of the big dollar Union Funding
behind that Advertising campaign.
Now that the Big advertising campaign has sold their insanely popular message to the public, union ativists could be heading in the direction of buyer's remorse when they learn that Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey are unable to deliver in the board room what
they promised to the union board.
#28941 Nov 7, 2013
LOL... POT, MEET KETTLE.
#28942 Nov 7, 2013
Let the Union Bring It On!
Practice Makes Perfect and Springboro Taxpayers have Perfected the
the Smart Practice of Voting NO NEW TAXES.
#28943 Nov 7, 2013
Quotes of Mr. Anderson are not proof enough? Show me the quotes where he supports B/V.
LOL, Mr. Kettle
