In Todd Petrey's $12,000 Contract Proposal for Community Engagement presentation, it is stated: Our district is a $50 million organization operating without a vision developed with stakeholders.<quoted text>
This looks like a duck, walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, maybe its a duck. The usual suspects show up for all of these support the schools programs that always seem to turn into another cry for more money to help the kids. If I have learned nothing from watching this hocum go on for many years, it is all a grand setup to justify the unjustifiable. We had a surplus, how fast can they blow through that? Then they will cry poverty. The district did not need $35 million six years ago, as is proven by the surplus we now enjoy off of the same old tax revenues. Shouldn't Neighbors for Springboro Schools be footing this nonsense instead of the taxpayers?
Really, Mr. Petrey? Could it be that some stakeholders see our $130,000 School Superintendent now operating with the same old Tunnel Vision of status quo past failed practices?
Why should we blindly follow Jeff Stec's CREATION of Our identity and our community's "collective philosophy?" As an individual taxpayer and responsible civic minded citizen, I do not have an identity crisis; and I already have a clear Belief in my Mission for eternity.
People in this community should find out more about this community organizer, Jeff Stec, that Mr. Petrey is willing to blindly follow. Mr. Petrey doesn't even live in our community, doesn't pay school taxes in our community, and doesn't prove himself to have sound judgment in choosing leaders, like Stephanie Bindemann for Sure, to shape "Policy" for our school district. It appears to some that Mr. Petrey is the one who has an "identity crisis" since he doesn't know that a School Superintendent is hired by a community of taxpayers to manage our kid's education; not to micro-manage "We the People."
