I heard some people were not very nice to teachers at the polls today. Just doesn't seem right. Not their fault. They shouldn't be verbally abused. Those working polls are not optimistic based on the folks they ran into.

well then there should be some police reports filed.

Thing is...there were so many people at the polls I can't see how anyone would get away with such an act.

well either that or you just completely made something up from thin air....and we all know that would never happen right Bob?

That was the point because of the above, just say poop with no real proof. I didnt see anyone with bad attitudes at the polls today. In fact I saw a lot of people catching up and laughing allot.

I volunteered (VOTE Yes signs) outside the polls today for 3 1/2 hours in various locations and all voters were very respectful and polite.

For so many people to say signs do not influence their votes, thank you to the ones who stole 21 of them proclaiming Vote No. I am ashamed of you.

If this thing fails, what the heck does that say about us as a community? I'll tell you.....we totally suck. Any community that doesn't support its schools isn't a community that anyone is going to want to live in. Housing values will take yet another nose dive (We've invested a ton of money in our house and the value STILL isn't what it was when we bought it 10 years ago).

I get the economy is tough, and that some mistakes were made in the past, but what is the goal of this negative levy campaign? To punish the school board for the past mistakes? The only people who end up being punished are the kids in the schools, the teachers who have to teach them, and the rest of the community (i.e. ALL of us) whose home values will continue to NOT be what we paid for them over a decade ago. Wake up folks!

Sadly, that says even more about us as a community if only 13% bothered to vote.

I am not 100 percent sure, but I believe that the "13.81%" is based on all three issues (Ross, Middletown, and Monroe) with 5650 votes made out of a potential of 40,779. (that is much more than the total population of Monroe).

Just saying ...

I do wonder what would have been "Achieved" if your no votes win.

there will be another levy....more money spent....so really..what did you achieve?

Sure you would have succeeded in your finger pointing campaign, but your wallet won't end up being any fatter in the long run.

From what I heard it was because they were having financial problems not sure if that is true though, but if it is how ironic for Monroe to be in financial trouble.

As I said not sure if that is why but what I heard.

Demand better what? The state EXPECTS us to pass a levy to get out of fiscal emergency. In the state's eyes, we have failed as a community.

I'm sure you're probably right. I would be interested to know what the actual percentage is, though.

Warren Co reports a whopping 15 voters for the school levy. 8 no, 7 yes.

Mike I have a feeling the Monroe numbers will be closer to 25% but still far to small for such an important issue.

I dont think it means we suck as a community if it fails Active but i understand your position. I didnt end up voting because i understand both sides. I simply didnt feel passionate either way. If it passes i will gladly pay it and hope for more accountability and the best for the kids. If it fails hopefully its a wake up call that these times of the "bailout" are over. Its expensive enough however paying for my own mistakes.
Ive been here for 23 years now and one thing i can guarantee you is that this community doesnt suck regardless of the results of this election.

Of course, the state wants us to pass a levy. They dont want us borrowing their money.

This argument assumes the taxpayers aren't allowed to make a decision, and the proper role of government is to just keep putting levies on the ballot until one passes. That's not very democratic.

The people voted. The levy failed. Elections have consequences. The next step is up to the board (possibly more cuts) and the state (possible consolidation). If the people of Monroe don't want a levy, then they will get something else.

Take a look at how many times they put the levy on the ballot in Little Miami before it passes. Just because it was voted NO didn't make it go away.

the only consequences to this no vote is we will borrow more money from the state which we will eventually have to pay back and we will have to spend another 20K+ to fund the levy in November.

more levy's will continue, unless the state consolidates the district in which case again I ask you what did we accomplish?

The next step isn't up to the board...the board doens't control things anymore. the state is in control. people seem to forget that though.

none the less...I'll stand by and watch my homes value go further down the tubes.

The collective should be careful what is wishes for....it might actually get it. If we get abosrbed by Middletown, your taxes will go up by a lot more than what this levy would have increased. Irony

Well, you can expect all donations to Catnip and Carrots to cease from our family. We have given in the past, but now we cannot. Need to save for private school. Also, while I will continue to vote for fire and police issues if they make sense, no more votes for senior services, or animal issues. I need to make sure the money goes where it is really needed. The seniors can find somewhere else to play bridge and the animals, while I feel sorry for them, are just animals.

Only my husband knows for sure how I voted. Maybe if some people would learn to behave like adults, this type of thing wouldn't happen, since no one would know who was "pro-levy" or "anti-levy". There has been a lot of ugliness and ignorance coming from BOTH sides. Just my opinion, of course.

and we will be right back in a district with the treasurer that put us into this mess.

Oh the irony.

Meanwhile a board member that help get us into this mess pretty much dances on the grave of the district. It's an embarrassing day to live in Monroe.
