Does Sandusky even have a ballot?

Dont Worry Be Happy

Vote YES for the safety of Perkins TWP :-)

I don't think Sandusky needs to go to the polls because there are no issues. I can't believe the Sandusky schools don't have their hand out again. Perkins is overwhelmed with tax levies. If all the tax levies pass, they could end up paying $300 more in property taxes.

No on everything

Please be informed when you vote .

The Perkins Police levy is not a renewal. It has an added $900,000 to the 5.5 mileage.

The Perkins School operating levy has some added manipulation also. The school board moved operating funds to building funds. This was done to take the public vote out of the decision of school buildings. If you vote for the new operating levy you have for all sense and purpose given up your vote for you and your children on any building issues.

As an informed voter you must be aware of all the truth with Perkins levies.

It's your right to vote. Cherish it and protect it.

You're correct...the police levy is not a renewal. BUT the general levy that is expiring at the end of this year is not up for renewal. So not all of your figure of $900,000 is additional. Roughly half of it would be replacing the expiring levy.

As an informed voter you must be aware of all the truth with Perkins levies.

For the sake of the community, please vote no on all levies.

I WILL VOTE NO TO LEVIES BECAUSE I PAY TOO MUCH ALREADY. MY TAXES DIDN'T GO DOWN LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE. MINE WENT UP ABOUT 30% WHILE MY NEIGHBORS WENT DOWN. http://www.electionsonthe.net/oh... READ PEOPLE. THE POLICE LEVY IS IN ADDITION AS DONITSHOP GUY SAID. SINCE I ALREADY PAY A INCREASE OF 30% IN TAXES, I WILL NOT VOTE FOR ANOTHER $400 IN MORE TAXES. MY HOUSE STILL HAS NOT SOLD BECAUSE I WANT WHAT THE TAX MAN SAYS IT IS WORTH. I WILL NOT SELL FOR 2/3 OF ITS VALUE. I AM BEING OVER CHARGED FOR TAXES BY 30%. I HAVE NO MONEY TO GIVE BECAUSE I AM BROKE. I HAD TO STOP BUYING EXPENSIVE MEDICINE AND STOP GOING TO THE DOCTOR JUST SO I CAN BUY FOOD. I KEPT MY HOUSE COLD TO SAVE MONEY FOR FOOD. VOTE NO!

The police levy is replacing the expiring general levy, which is not up for renewal.

Dont Worry Be Happy

If the police levy fails are you going to feel safe living here in the TWP?

On every $100,000 (per your house value) you will pay an additional $7.15 a month. I'm willing to pay that for protection.

My fear is this levy fails the value of everything in the TWP will go down, nobody's house will sell, businesses will move out, it will be a ghost town.

Perkins TWP has grown so much in the last 10 years lets keep it growing, lets move forward together and feel safe.

Vote YES for the safety of our family, our children, our visitors, our buisnesses and our community in whole!!!

SOMETIMES WHEN I GO TO THE STORES ALL OF THE HANDICAP SPACES ARE TAKEN. ON SOME CARS I DONT SEE THE PLACARDS OR THE YOUNG PERSON IS USING A HANDICAP PERSONS PLACARD. THE POLICE SHOULD FINE THE OFFENDERS $250 LIKE THE SIGNS SAY. THOSE FINES COULD HELP FUND THE POLICE.

AGREED!!!!

PerkinsVoter

I HAVE A SHOTGUN AND WILL PROTECT MYSELF. EVERUBODY WHO VOTES YES ON THE TAX LEVY MUST HAVE GOTTEN A DECREASE IN TAXES. I USE CAPS BECAUSE MY GLASSES BROKE AND I NEED A NEW PAOR THAT I CANNOT AFFORD. IT MUST BE NICE TO HAVE LOTS OF MONEY TO SPEND.

I will be voting no on both school levies. Still up in the air on the police levy. But for sure voting no on both school levies.

PerkinsVoter

I BET THAT SOME OF THE POLICE LEVY MONEY WILL GO TO FUND THE NEW HALL AND OTHER EXPENSES. THEY WILL SHIFT MONEY AROUND LIKE THE SCHOOLS DID.

PerkinsVoter

HOW MUCH DID IT COSY TO FUND THE POLICE BEFORE. MAYBE 2 MILLS. WHERE WILL THE OTHER 3 MILLS GO.

bobshumway92

Too bad the school board isn't up for vote. They for sure would be thrown out.

bobshumway92

Gunner needs to go!

PerkinsVoter

5.5 MILLS IS TOO MUCH FOR THE POLICE. WILL THEY BUY A HELICOPER AND ARMY TANK WITH THE EXTRA MONEY.

underthebridge

Predictions?

bobshumway92

School board and Gunner will be back in August with their grubby little hands out.

underthebridge

If both the emergency operating levy and the renewal fail, Gunner will be gone before the next election. I think those are the only circumstances under which he will be gone.

bobshumway92

I don't know of anyone voting yes that isn't affiliated with the school. I hope they both go down and I hope your right underthebridge.

bobshumway92

Double post.
