One thing I have always loved about living in Wood County is the support for our school system. This levy has been in place for many years. It is a renewal levy. Ask anyone who lives in districts like Marietta, Switzerland of Ohio, etc. and they will tell you that property values are down and schools are a mess. Having a good school system draws people and business. Who wants to move to a school district where the future of the schools is in question? Anyway, I'm voting yes. I don't want to become another district fighting for survival and watching families and businesses move on.

We have a fine school system that serves the students and employees well so hopefully the levy will pass. Many complain about the salary of the supt. or other administrators, but compare those to others in the private sector with the same or less responsibility and you will find they are very underpaid.

The boe really needs cleaned up. You said it best cannibal, to many undeserving raises for those who do the least work. Give it to those who deserve it most. Those actually in the schools busting butt for the kids. Not pencil pushers behind desks thinking of ways to spend taxpayer money. There needs to be some serious house cleaning done starting with this election.

The levy pays for VITAL positions such as nurses and reading teachers. These positions go straight to helping our kids. If you want to know how vital these people are simply ask a parent of a student who has had a seizure while at school, or the parent of a child who received the help needed to get their child's reading on grade level.
