Schools Hiring Pros to Pass Levies…we will expose them

(LFC Comments:  The following is a reply we received from a Lorain Lobbyist to the article on Campaigning rules.

It is such a powerful message, we wanted to be sure that everyone saw it.)

Dear LFC,

Thank you for the informative article and comment thread. Follow the money.

Side note: Bricker & Eckler, Attorneys at law, ( were “Silver” level sponsors of the Ohio School Boards Association’s (OSBA) recent Capital Conference in Columbus.

In the Nov. 11, 2019, OSBA bi-monthly newsletter “Briefcase”, there was a flyer advertising “Levy University” coming up Dec. 13, 2019, in Columbus. It is directed to local school board members and costs $170 to attend. Do you think that school board members pay the $170 personally? If not, then who? PACs or school districts?

The lead speaker at “Levy University” is Jerry Rampelt, founder and executive director of ‘Support Ohio Schools Research and Education Foundation’ and author of ‘The Levy Manual’. The Levy Manual is about how to win school tax campaigns is considered the premier book about school tax issues in Ohio per this webpage:

Updated: 11/26/19 – Here is a link to the “Levy University”, and Mr. Rampelt.

The local board members have experts training them on how to win levies.

Recently, I have heard about the use public relations firms by school districts to handle multiple aspects of communications with local communities and also professional coaching and managing of pro-levy campaigns. That’s another conversation but is related.

(LFC Comments:  Be aware of the professional campaigns to support school levies that price seniors and those living on fixed incomes out of their homes that they have worked all their lives to achieve.

Who do you think is paying for their own demise without realizing it?  THE TAXPAYERS’ MONEY IS BEING USED TO HIRE THESE PROFESSIONALS!

We will have much more on this issue as we continue our research.  This shall not stand, we will expose them.  Public schools get ~70% of all property taxes.)
