Auburn Board & Mr. Bontempo…will you do what is right…or will you continue to waste taxpayer money on lawyers?

By Brian Massie, A Watchman on the Wall

This is part 2 of the unbelievable story of Auburn Career Center’s leadership willing to spend millions to avoid a $144,000 claim that was due. Here is the original article we published:

We attended the Auburn Career Center Board meeting tonight (March 5th) and spoke to the Board members about them wasting taxpayers property taxes.

Brian Massie’s public comments to the Auburn Board members.
Two former Auburn teachers plead with the Board members to do the right thing and pay the employees what is rightfully theirs.

Here is a transcript of what Brian Massie said to the Auburn Board members.

Superintendent Brian Bontempo handed out the following FAW document for anyone that my want additional information about the lawsuit.

We just discovered that the “Learning Center” across from the Auburn main facilities was sold under the guise of needing more classrooms. It turns out that there is no “learning” that goes on in there. Auburn is the landlord for the Educational and Service Center for Geauga and Lake County.

By the way, did you know that the Educational Service Center is the bookkeeper for the property tax levy collected for the “Lake County Financing District”? We will be pulling back the curtain on that financial drain just as soon as we can.

We plan to contact our elected State Representatives about the issue of “taxation without representation” with the appointment of the Auburn Board members by the school districts rather than being elected by the taxpayers that are paying millions in property taxes to fund Auburn. There was a tea party a few years back in Boston that addressed the same problem. Our older readers probably have heard about this event. Unfortunately, the younger readers would not understand the reference since history is not taught in the public schools anymore.

“The Tea Party was the culmination of a resistance movement throughout British America against the Tea Act, a tax passed by the British Parliament in 1773. Colonists objected to the Tea Act believing it violated their rights as Englishmen to “no taxation without representation“, that is, to be taxed only by their own elected representatives and not by a parliament in which they were not represented.”…Wikipedia
