Vote “NO” On All County Tax Issues November 2

Nov. 2, 2021 the politicians are trying to screw us over again after we voted many of these issues down in May. Inflation is rising at dangerous rates: gasoline is up over 50%. What will propane cost this winter to heat our homes? Don’t give these self-serving lowlifes another penny of your money. Some have the nerve to run two issues at the same time.

Chardon schools is trying to screw us again. Enrollment is dropping and teachers have been on a paid vacation for the past year. They have all the money they need. No more raises for administrators.

We are in the process of getting it stuck to us over the “white elephant” $40+ million administration building that is in litigation and the legal fees will be incredibly high. Why would anyone even attempt to put all these taxes on the backs of Geauga residents when some were out of work for more than a year and businesses had to shut down? And the county has just reevaluated the values of properties so your taxes will go up even if none of these pass.

The politicians in this county should be ashamed but to feel shame first you have to have integrity.

IT’S TIME TO SAY “NO MORE!”

  1. Chardon Twp. is trying to pull a fast one again with its road levy that we voted down in May. We are not responsible for the most used roads in out township. Those include Mentor Rd., Chardon Rd., Thwing Rd. or Auburn Rd. Those are all county roads and the responsibility of the county. They are tryng to run a scam on us.

    Since when does Chardon Twp. have its own fire and EMS? I have never seen a vehicle with that on it but there is a levy. More fake hustle.

  2. WHAT THE HECK IS GOINING ON? THEY ARE TAXING US OUT OF OUR HOMES!!!

    Chardon those snakes aren’t talking about this school Bond at all! That’s how they passed the Kenston levy, they kept it quiet and slithered around the issue. VOTE NO ON THE CHARDON SCHOOL BOND LEVY

    What a bunch of snakes!!!

    CALL YOUR NEIGHBORS, TELL THEM TO VOTE NO!

    I have to say that the Chardon School Board is the creepiest bunch of people I have ever seen. They are so slippery and slimy. Just a bunch of big ass kissers.

  3. How dare you complain about taxes. This is your duty as Americans. Shame on all of you skinflints.
    I”m voting yes on the Chardon School Bond Levy. We need a new campus and if you don’t like it, you can home school. Our administrative staff and our teachers are underpaid, they are struggling financially and all you can do is complain about a few extra dollars.
    Vote yes on all of the levies, support your community!

  4. The Chardon School Board members and Bond Levy Committee supporters are taking a page out of the Kenston’s 2004 playbook (9.4 mils) and the May 2015 Operating (4 Mill) and Bond Issue (10 Mill). In collusion with the local newspapers, they kept the levy and bond issue on the “down low” and unsuspecting residents failed to come out and vote against one of the highest tax levies in Kenston history.

    Our local papers are not writing about these enormous potential tax increases. Why? We have no local papers that look out for the residents.

    Chardon administrative staff and teachers are desperate to pad their private pockets and are reaching out to supporters only.

    The Superintendent is such a snake, when they wanted to hear from the community about the proposed new campus, they hid the survey on some private site that was shared amongst supporters ONLY. And guess how they responded?

    If we residents do not get out and vote against this insulting tax grab, then it’s our own fault.

    Get out and vote NO on the Chardon Schools 15-year, $7.2 million Bond Levy!

  5. To: Democrats are saving this country: KISS MY ASS.

    I am 80 years old and still working to make ends meet. The Chardon teachers and administrators have all worked part-time since March 2020 but got their full pay. Let them struggle just like all of us.

    VOTE “NO” ON EVERYTHING.

  6. Hooraaaay!! Glad to see there were enough people in Chardon having some common sense, sending a decisive message to Ph.D. Dummy Hanlon and the “yes” people on the Chardon school board that they need to get off their lazy asses to think and work smarter instead of always having their hands out. Do a better job or get out! No thanks to any of you!!

    This race was by no means close. The school board and their supporters got trounced good. They lost by 1034 votes. 3514 votes “for” and 4548 votes “against”. The scary thing is, there are 3514 misguided, ignorant Chardon people out there who are willing to give Hanlon and the school board anything they want, at our expense, sweat, and labor. We know how they operate, that they will be back some time later for another money grab. WE WILL BE WAITING!

    WE WILL VOTE IT DOWN AGAIN.

  7. There is no place now for the football team to play according to a story in the Maple Leaf:

    “This is the second time the field turf is being replaced at Memorial Field, which was built in 2000 mostly by community donations and volunteer expertise from longtime community members like Tim Smith, whose four sons played football as Hilltoppers. The first turf replacement, in 2009, was funded by the school’s permanent improvement levy.

    Smith, who has worked in excavating for 40 years, helped build both Memorial Field and the high school track next to it.

    “This field was in top condition,” said Smith, who blamed the contractor, subcontractors and school’s administration for the current situation, at the board meeting. “Heavy trucks continued to run on the existing stone base, crushing and tearing up valuable stone and drainage systems that are critical to the use of this field.”

    He continued: “The main issue is this was all witnessed by, and allowed to continue all day, by our superintendent and operations manager … neither of whom has the knowledge or experience to be in charge of a project of this magnitude.”

  8. Sleeping lion, the 3,514 number includes the staff and their families who live in Chardon. I can’t imagine that others would be voting to pay more for the bloated, highly over staffed payroll of the Chardon Schools. Remember, they have a Superintendent, assistant superintendents, assistants to the assistants, and so on.

    Yes, 3,514 people voted for this, many of whom are voting to line their own pockets.

  9. The students in the Chardon School district are struggling to read and write. Maybe football is not a priority at this time.

  10. Anything “commencing” in 2021 will show up on your tax bill in Jan. 2022. Scamming the residents right from the start.
