Unofficial election results: Perkins Schools levy fails
Register
Aug 6, 2013

UPDATED 8:20 p.m.:

Unofficial initial results, with all precincts counted, indicate the levy has failed:

Against the tax levy: 2,482 (53.68%)

For the tax levy: 2,142 (46.32%)

* * *

Perkins Schools is proposing a 10-year, 6.73-mill emergency operating levy to voters. 

If approved, the levy would generate about $2.8 million annually for the district, which would stabilize its deficit budget and restore $2 million in costly cuts approved earlier this summer.

It would cost the owner of a $100,000 home an additional $206 in taxes each year

Any update on absentee and early voter results?

Ok Gunner and BOE. Time to implement those Pay to Play fees and sadly lay off the 14 teachers instead of cutting free laptop programs. I don't think you'll do it!!! If you don't, you'll lose even more credibility....and the November attempt!

It will pass. Don't even bother checking.

Updated at 8:30. I stand corrected. Thank you Perkins Voters!

One of the many election laws limit campaigning within a certain distance of a polling place. Signs at the road are far enough away from the polling location/room. Not sure of the true distance, but remember reading that somewhere.

If it passes, I'd be amazed. A lot of people out there are just tired of paying and paying and paying.. I hate to say it, but one group of students one day will have to take one for the team. By that, I mean they must go through a stretch of constant NO votes, just in hopes of forcing our state government to do something that our state Supreme Court told them to do what, 30 years ago?..

By the upcoming November vote, they will register a whole bunch more newly 18 year olds who will vote "Yes" then leave for college, never to pay the tax increase they vote for.

Jesus was for the levy failing?

With all of this passion from this community on yes and no, and moving from a community passionate about yes and no on school levies, when are the people, both yes and no voters going to go after the state of Ohio and press the unconstitutional way of funding schools from the land owners through proper taxation. It seems very cowardly to go after your own community both yes and no voters, but not to go after the people who are actually doing us wrong. When are people really going to man up and take a stand?

God Of Thunder

You think no one has voiced opinions in the past??? Our state reps, if that's what you want to call them, have known about his for many years, and Ohioans elect a nitwit governor who makes it even worse.. I have said for a long time...Anyone who is in there now, needs to be voted out and people need to run who have an agenda to change the way schools are funded.

Good 2 B Me

Nitwit Governor! I love it and share your feelings on him! Time to give him the boot too!

God Of Thunder

I call em as I see em!!

AMEN! We need to hold the state accountable. Instead of stealing funding to stick in the state coiffure, come up with a fair way to put all school systems on equal footing with everyone paying their fair share, not just property owners!

Perkins2060

Thank you Perkins Residents!

So I got to pay over 600 in school fees now?

Yellow Snow

pay it for a few short years, or pass a levy and pay it for life.

God Of Thunder

Yep!!!!!! And I don't have to chuck out another 500 a year for a poorly run school system

The board should vote immediately to remove Gunner.

Curley

I agree with Perkins2060 they should remove Gunner immediately. He has not lived up to his contract by moving to the township. But yet he takes their money and goes home to where he lives and spend it. It should be here in Sandusky and not out of town. Maybe the board better take a good look at Gunner and ask for his two week notice. There should be enough qualified people in Perkins School System that can take over and run the schools. First of all get rid of Gunner, then maybe you will pass levies.

bobshumway92

I agree!

Good 2 B Me

YES! No confidence!

Amen
