Willoughby-Eastlake Schools…looks like an uprising taking place

A response to our article on the Willoughby-Eastlake special school levy deserves its own article…….We love the “Power to the People” slogan…

Note to Mr. Steve Thompson, Superintendent and his board – looks like citizens are not too happy with your actions.  We know of other groups marshaling forces to defeat your levy.

The placement of a school levy on the ballot is not done without a lot of thought, and analysis of what has the best chance of being accepted by the voters. The State’s databases on prior school levies, no doubt, influences when to place a levy on the ballot.

Here is an excerpt from page 31 of the “Ohio School Finance Blue Book” that proves our point:

“Past Election Results”
“The Ohio Department of Education, Division of School Finance, keeps excellent records of school election results. You can access these records on their website.”

“These ODE records will show you what types of issues have the best passing percentages, in the last election and in the past 5 years.  The data also show the winning percentages of all issues voted on in May, August, and November.  These data may help in the selection of the type of funding issue for your district and also in the timing of your issue.”

Here is the article from a disgruntled citizen:

OH, WHAT A TANGLED WEB WE WEAVE, WHEN FIRST WE PRACTICE TO DECEIVE”. Shame on you, super Thompson and your “board of bandits”.

“We the people……” need to contact our State Representative to make it mandatory that ALL registered voters in the school district receive notification of any election to allow ample time to obtain absentee ballots and to be informed. Also, there should be a minimum turnout requirement to legitimize the election with fairness and transparency. Change can only be initiated through the State legislature. This is OUR $$$ that is being mismanaged.

The only public notice appeared in the April 9 edition of the “News Herald” which has a TOTAL circulation of approximately 26,000. There are at least approximately 22,769 residents in Willoughby alone and approximately 18,134 in Eastlake. A selective mailer, however was sent to the Willoughby Hills alumna encouraging a yes vote — very very devious.

A filing has already been done with the Board of Elections for the November ballot in case this Special Election fails — at present over $100,000 spent.
