In the Best interest of our Children First 21st Century education, and the future of our school children and community, it is not best to just settle for Good teachers. Now is the time for all good men, women, and children to Rally for TRUE role models of those who hold Legal and Moral Authority over our school children and community members.
How can we know that Charles Anderson and Ron Malone for S-U-R-E are not the best role models; but only the most popular two by "vote" in last election? Why both Charles Anderson and Ron Malone may be good for the best interests of the Springboro Education Association; only the TRUE teacher/leader role model is good enough for our Children First.
"The true teacher defends his pupils against his own personal influence. He inspires self-trust. He guides their eyes from himself to the spirit that quickens him. He will have no disciple." - Amos Bronson Alcott
Did you know that under the leadership of Springboro School Board President and Vice President, Charles Anderson and Ron Malone, that our Board representatives voted to "change" the 2013 Teachers Contract, putting the "re-emphasis on the Value of Increased benefits of Union First? Our union first BOE elected officials argued that the SEA negotiating team made a Mistake in coming to terms with the Children First BOE majority during the teacher contract negotiations last year. And that's just insanely hypocritical!

Now that we know a Big Mistake was made in January 2014 by our BOE elected officials in voting for Charles Anderson and Ron Malone for President and Vice President, shouldn't people in the community protest for Correction of this Big Mistake, and for the Sake of Our Children First, vote our more experienced Board Members, Jim Rigano and David Petroni, into leadership positions of President and Vice President?

Why do I plan not to attend any of Stec's meetings? I'm offended that Springboro school board had the GAUL to vote to use taxpayer money out of the general fund to hire Petrey's buddy to act as pro-levy community activist.
Even more insanely "GAULish" is the waste of thousands of dollars of our hard earned school taxes on these 10,000 big ole expensive post cards mailed out by our school superintendent, with the "many voices" of Todd Petrey's representation of Union First Solidarity AGAINST any ONE community member's ONE voice representing our Children First.

What a Waste! Shame on You, Todd Petrey!

Why not check out the website www.ohea.org/this-is-what-solidarity-looks-li... for
S-U-R-E? Are you sure this SEA Maney-Act/Bindeman Board Policy is what you want for our community?
Why not use YOUR one voice to tell our School Superintendent Todd Petrey:
One District, Many Voices, One Future with a shared sense of direction toward Union First in our children's 21st century education is just heading down the wrong highway. Time to turn "Right" putting the re-emphasis on Children First best interest of highest academic achievement and fiscal responsibility.
Let's face it, we don't always agree on every decision for our schools; so let's cancel this nonsense of your Superstec Man meetings saying "we want to hear from you".... but ONLY at a cost of $12,000 to Springboro taxpayers? Get Real Mr. Petrey! No more waiting for "superstec man!" It's time to open up that board room and handle important school district issues in the same open and transparent way as done during the past two years.
The new community engagement committee is so desperate to have anyone from the common sense citizens attend their phony vision and mission committee so they can say "see we had people of all sides participate in this committee". The problem is that we all know we will be used to sell their agenda. He-- no you will not use our good names and you are all phonies. How do we know? Stephanie Bindeman on Policy committee????? Lisa Babb, David Bowman, and all of the committees you set up are phony agenda, driven drunk on socialism political activists. Your levy loving, socialists, anti Christian, teacher union thugs are very telling of your agenda. Really, Lisa Babb and David Bowman Sarah Jobe are angry, mean people that caused the chaos over the last 4 years in full compliance of the union agenda. Ask the people that attended the "workshops" put on by Becky Vilimagna where she told them of the Sal Alenski Rules for Radicals ways to create chaos. Now everyone you have invited to be on these committees are union thugs, socialists participating in the socialist agenda. Really, Petrey do you think we are so stupid we will play in your sick little game of extortion. This whole community activism is a hoax and we know it. We are not going to help you continue to harm these kids by convincing everyone that what everyone wants is more money, larger govt. more socialist schools controlled by union thugs. You lose because you are not smarter than Springboro citizens.

I do not trust this public education system to teach christian values if they can't even teach the science and beliefs of creationism.

We don't fear you union bullies anymore. You shut up and sit down and listen to us.

Shame on you.
This DDN October 17, 2013 article also states:

"Stuckey brings the perspective of a former coach and teacher and is the only candidate who was part of the Springboro Education Association, the local teachers union that sponsored a candidates forum......

Stuckey, along with Malone and Anderson, told the forum audience, they would be primarily focused on what was best for the students, rather than the teachers."

Contrary to that statement, actions speak louder than words. Just check out the Board Room Votes of the MSA threesome since January 2014 when they were sworn into office to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States;

and just see for yourselves that now "it is written" in the public records of our Springboro Board of Education meeting minutes that "primarily" Charles Anderson, Ron Malone, and David Stuckey are overwhelmingly focused on upholding and protecting Union First Springboro Education Assoication Solidarity AGAINST our Children First.

Springboro Education Association president Scott Maney launched this Union First Solidarity AGAINST our Children First in January 2012, after the defeat of Union First school board candidates-- the three BEG Ladies for Increased School Taxes--Babb/Ellis/Gregg.

In March 2012, Mr. Malone and our SHS Union Activists, joined Mr. Maney in the SEA's community wide rally of politics of personal destruction against the THREE Children First Springboro School Board Members; leading our SHS Union Activists to interrogate the Children First Board members, asking "which one is lying" regarding why they did not attend the Special Called Board Meeting held by Scott Anderson and Don Miller, which violated Board policy of special meeting being called with only Two Board members.

During this March 2012 Protest Against Children First, Principal Ron's Kids showed up in their black tee shirts Voicing a dark shawdow cast upon a brighter future for Our Children First in Springboro schools, by vowing revenge for the Union First SEA against the Children First BOE elected officials, with their threats to Vote the Children First influence out of the board room just as soon as the SHS union activists were old enough to vote.

Now, with the help of union classroom teacher Molly Wray's violation of our SHS students privacy rights, these Boro Alumni have made good their threats in the November 2013 election of Charles Anderson and the two retired educators, Ron Malone and David Stuckey. We now understand that Charles Anderson, Ron Malone and David Stuckey have the board majority authority to Rule our Board room for SEA Union First Solidarity AGAINST our Children First; but just because this MSA Union First Solidarity is Insanely Popular with the SEA President Scott Maney, and Springboro Parent Stephanie Bindemann for S-U-R-E,
to the detriment of our Children First, doesn't make it right for our schools and community.

There is no place in our Springboro Board of Education public business meetings for
Anonymous. Yet, in recent public board meetings, SchoolBoardPresident Charles Anderson voiced Ron Malone's politics of personal destruction against a fellow board member, who dared to expect the courtesy of student identification in an email sent by Anonymous Panther to a Board of Education elected official. Where's the respect in that, Mr.SchoolBoardVicePresidentRon Malone?
And, Mr.SchoolBoardPresidentCharles Anderson, where is your "backbone in leadership" that you would weaken yourself as role model for students, staff, and citizens, allowing yourself to be folded into Ron Malone's politics of personal destruction against your fellow board members, who were voted into elected office "by the people-for the-people-of the people two years ago, November 2011, just as you, Ron Malone and David Stuckey were voted into elected office in November 2013?
I was at that board meeting where Malone, the biggest coward and hypocrite had Mr. Anderson read his comments and I was absolutely appalled at the ridiculous rant that this tyrant, and chief idiot went on. Does he not know we have his number, we know he cheated these Springboro kids of a real education. He ruined students OGT scores by letting his wife run through the hallways screaming during testing. All thge hysteria was because the board asked him to move to central office. We the public did not know yet that it was due to his inept leadership. His wife and he did know that his leadership resulted in students being held back. They knew about the horrible reports from the federal audit of the high school and the Warren County ESC showed that his performance was poor at best and unethical. Malone slept through meetings and teacher evaluations. They knew he was having many problems and the school ran itself-not really well. They did not care about the kids they only care about themselves, their money and their power. How unbelievable that this unethical phony elitist ridicule a board member for telling an adult pretending to be a student (it was likely Malone himself) to man up and message using their real name. I agree with Petroni. If you have something you want people to take seriously be brave enough to put your name on it. Shame on a stupid board and Super for publishing and anonymous message. Why would they do this--because it was one of them. There, can you publish this?

OK OK she may be phony but mostly she is a vessel, a tool for evil otherwise a useful idiot. Since she is a teacher she thinks she is doing the work of her kind but, in fact, she is simply an airhead. Now Stephanie Bindeman and David Bowman and Sarah Jobe are truly evil. These three are liberal communists, masquerading as "good". Open your eyes everybody. Wake up and see who the enemy really is. Lisa is a tool that maybe a exorcism will cure but there are many that are the evil that fills the vessels. Fools, when will you wake up?

When the school administrator's solution for spending more money than they took in for sports was to raise the amount of money the district would kick in, Mr. Petroni asked that they also afford the academic side of things the same courtesy by waiving student fees by a like amount.

He naturally felt the wrath of Mr. Petrey and Mr. Malone for his suggestion and the request to aid in the academic venue was derided and declined..

The thing about the sports program was that we knew a year ago they were going to spend way more than they were going to bring home in revenue. Not once did I hear anyone from the Superintendent Petrey to the business manager to the treasurer suggest that perhaps we need to reign in our expenses. The only thing I heard in concert from the members of the administration in the Budget and Finance committee was to run another levy and charge families more money.

How many of our sports programs reigned in their spending when they knew they were spending too much?

None?

How many coaches recognize they are part of an overall program not just a single sport empire?

None?

How much did our administration do to inform those coaches that the salad days of taking as much as you wanted had come to an accountable end?

None?

Why did our able superintendent Mr. Petrey, codify the illegal taking of sports camp monies by the coaches to provide them legal cover?

(Mr Petrey gave them an 80% commission for selling to a captive audience or as we like to say in business, taking orders from the call in house accounts)

If one goes through the records they will find NO documents that say the coaches were ever allowed unfettered use of our school name and reputation, facilities, and staff to run private businesses for the coaches personal gain. No coaching contract exists that states such, no board resolution states such, and certainly no taxpayer mandate allows this giant transfer of funds away from our children and to the coaching staff.

Mr. Holtrey conspired to organize this shift of funds at taxpayer expense when he was the athletic director according to testimony given by various coaches and himself to the Ohio State Audit investigators.

For years and to this day unsuspecting parents are duped into believing this somehow benefits the sports programs and the children as opposed to merely enriching the coaching staff.

There exists plenty of money to support very well our sports programs if the financial controls are in place and respected by the coaches. If the boosters and all the money they raise are to support the entire program rather than just the "fun" stuff.

Did you notice the Shadowy Figures in the front page picture of the May 15 Star Press article "School Distrct launches community meetings program".....?

Reading between the lines "One Boro Community Many Voices One Future" those shadowy figures with many voices are representing Jeff Stec's ONE future of Union First Solidarity AGAINST our Children First Boro Brighter Future, doing what's right for our school children and community.

You can learn more about the man who has been hired by our school superintendent and majority board members at his website:
www.citizensforcivicrenewal.org/

If you would like to peer into the "One Future" that Mr. Stec's Civic Renewal program has in store for our Springboro Schools and Community, then check out the OEA website and find the article written by Springboro Education Association President, Scott Maney,
"This Is What Solidarity Looks Like."

People in this community should ask themselves, IF Jeff Stec is representing Todd Petrey, and Todd Petrey is representing Scott Maney, and Scott Maney is representing Union First Solidarity,
THEN, who is Representing Our Children First?
