13 years?????? You passed one a month ago! You just aren't satisfied with the one that was passed!

It was a renewal!

A renewal that barely passed. Need to generate more revenue.

These yes people are the ones with houses they can't affors to live in, have all leased vehicles, huge credit card debt, etc. This is hilarious!

Strong Schools ...

Wow Perkins 2060! Now you are attacking us personally. Sounds like you are getting pretty mad. But my husband and I have very successful jobs and live in a beautiful home. But it is good to know you care about the financial situation of the "yes" voters! Stay focused on the schools. Let's keep our conversations based on what the blog is called "Perkins School Board Meeting". Please educate yourself, step away from your computer, and attend a board meeting.

Really? The only debt I have is school loans...

OH!! I'm sorry!!! Ladies and gentleman...it was ONLY a renewal that you graciously granted them! Silly taxpayers!!

"Mom and Dad, can I have 50 bucks"..."No...but here is $20. Go out and spend it responsibly"...(Child screaming, crying, and waling on ground)..."I am your child!! How dare you not give me what I want! Can't you add??? I want these cool NEW shoes, which I put in lay-away in YOUR name! Now I have to come up with the money to pay for them! YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT ME!!!"

People...this excerpt is the equivalent to what we are currently experiencing.

Interesting comment on a month ago. Have you ever attended a board meeting? As a voter you don't know the difference between renewals and new millage. I hoped you read your voter card.. . It did say renewal. That is not new $$ so again Perkins has received no new school money in 13 years.

Perkins2060

Too bad the renewal passed. Morons.

Excuse me? Where do you get off calling people names? And since when did Sandusky Register let 5-year olds on the comments to start name-calling?

I have been to lots of board meetings and stopped because it all came down to the BOE telling us we are wrong and we hired them to make the decisions and so forth. NOT ONCE did the board LISTEN and take into consideration what we are saying and asking. Do they know that residents have the final say?

Strong Schools ...

We passed a renewal. We have not passed any new money for thirteen years. We can't pay the bills now on what we made thirteen years ago. I know I couldn't!

44870 South

You haven't passed any NEW money for 13 years?? Interesting fact...So then why do you build a brand NEW football stadium??? Wouldn't it have been smart to get the NEW money before buying the NEW stuff?

Amen

Our schools have been run into the ground by this regime. I'm voting no in August and looking for another district to send my kids. Edison or Huron are my two choices. I will decide where next month. Bye bye Perkins. I hope the district I choose will spend those state funds wisely and not like Gunner and our school board has spent what they have.

Strong Schools ...

Let me know when you are moving. I have a few friends that want to move to the district because of our awesome teachers and students! We need to keep out Perkins Pride and stand up for our students.

Perkins2060

Who's moving? I'm open enrolling my kids out of this fiasco being orchestrated by Gunner and his board. I'm sending my kids and the state funds out of here and elsewhere. Vote no.

I'm Done

There are plenty of houses for sale that aren't selling.

Yeah move to Huron. . . are you reading the papers. . .they are not far behind with the state cuts imposed upon them. When the state took over Huron years back the community had to pass almost 9 mills to save their schools. This is not just a Perkins issue. . . it is a state issue!

Perkins2060

No one is moving. Only thing moving is the state funds from Perkins to another district.

Señor Clown

Be interesting to see how things work out for Sandusky's new advanced placement school. Could be a good open enrollment option to private school some day?

eriemom

It may put stress on one of Perkin's programs.

Vote Yes!!!

You all are being bullied.
Give in to a bully and guess what? You get bullied worse.
Gunner has bullied staff and now the voters... good luck if you cave in now.
Bullied for a new building that the public doesn't feel is needed or wanted.

Strong Schools ...

No I m not Gunner. But, thanks for asking!

Perkins2060

This is too funny! Gunner and the board must have brought up the Register at their pep rally tonight. I love this!

Vote4Perkins

You wouldn't know because you don't go to the board meetings...

People, please be informed and make your own decisions...don't listen to uninformed bloggers who just sit on their computers all day.

Strong Schools ...

Gunner has not bullied our community at all. If you attend the board meeting you will see he is very open and honest. I believe he has done a good job finding other funding. Our schools have been issued grants due to his efforts.

44870 South

Yippidy-do-dah! So have a lot of other schools received grants! I think SCS and EHOVE get all kinds of grants! A few grants and you think this guy is doing a good job? That's what your using to measure his ability to lead??? Honestly???? You've got to be kidding. He has divided an entire community.

Perkins2060

Gunnet is cutting your jobs. Tell him to move the money back to save your job!
