Looks like you've been brainwashed by the pea-brains otherwise known as the Pickerington Patriots.

And yet I don't get to vote "yes" for billions upon billions for NCLB, search for WMD in Irag that cost hundreds of billions, space travel in the billions. BLah blah blah.

Go move out of state. There are about 43 other states where you get NO say in whether your taxes go up for school purposes.

Right you are joke, I did mis-speak about the PEA, it'll be the NEA that keep it from being on the ballot.
It won't be the NEA either. We are only one of about 8 or 9 states that allow citizens to vote on these issues. You people believe these local unions control everything and they don't. Get a clue.

I believe in strong schools and a strong community. The schools have received less revenue from the state and they have already cut spending. If you want to destroy the schools and call that being patriotic, you are a nut.
Who's destroying the schools, me? How about the PLSB/D wasting our money? A union that does everything "for the kids". My NO vote tells them we are tired for them being fiscally irresponsible.

Now if you want to talk about your enabling them to do so...we can.

You are preaching the same stuff as the other pitiful little whiners, who are twisting figures around to suit their arguments. Here are the facts. The teachers took 3 years of base salary freezes, 1 year step freeze, and tripled the amount they pay for health insurance. This resulted in $6.2 million of savings for the district and for the taxpayers. So you are just a complainer who is a tightwad. Just move away.

Then why the need for more money? Did I hear someone say future pay raises? How dare you call a working class taxpaying citizen a "tightwad" you ungrateful, callous and uncaring miscreant.

Glad it passed. The Board needs to stretch this out as long as possible. As long as our boneheaded President and moron Governor don't continue shredding funding to Ohio and the PLSD from the state level, maybe they can keep this going for at least 4 years. Prudent is the word. I still think the pay to play should stay. Many more sports and activities offered than there were 20 years ago. They need to be funded by the individuals participating. And if they can't afford them??? I can't afford to live in a 3000 sq ft home and drive a Mercedes. It is a life lesson to work to pay for those for the kids.
congrats

Apparently so, because you just enabled the PLSD to go after more money... enjoy your victory but you come back and justify the next levy that they need money for...the cycle starts again....
tightwad really

Better than drinking the "it's for the kids" kool-aid you've been downing, at least I know that I tried to make the PLSD responsible in the way they spend my money, you just gave it to them and said there's more where that came from....

The teachers took that so that the union could say see we did something, don't make them out to be heroes. Everyone else has been a victim of pay freezes, no cola and yearly 13-15% health insurance increases…so cry me a river you…(I can't even come up with a good metaphor for you)

Let's see how your ilk justify next years levy, that's for the kids.
ROTFLMAO life lesson

No, the life lesson is that you just taught is if you live outside your means (PLSD) tax everyone to death, because that makes the problem go away...
tightwad right

Maybe I should quit my job and live off of the community, I think that would solve all my problems...after all it works for you and this school district.

BTW, get your facts right, they did not triple the health care, they went from 10 to 5.7 to 15 percent. Why did it go down to 5.7 percent, because last years rate increase went straight to the PLSD, because the all caring union wouldn't absorb the cost...so get and check your facts before spouting your kool-aid ddrinking misinformation.
