I think the choices should be something on the order of:

Yes
Yes, because I work or have a vested interest in TPS
Yes, because I'm really stupid

No
No, and I'll donate money to any politico who opposes this levy
Hell No!
Hell No! and I'll donate money to any politico who opposes this levy

For those of you who plan on voting, and everyone should vote and vote NO on this, we have some interesting information about TPS and the levy at WrongTaxWrongTime.com.

  • Greater Toledo Urban League recommends NO vote on Issue 3 – TPS 3/4% earned income tax.
  • Your tax dollars used to raise your Taxes.
  • TPS Mailer – does it mislead?

We will be posting more cost savings ideas - the kind that TPS management would rather you not know about so they can make sure the cuts they make hurt the students, parents and community as hard as possible for not voting to raise your taxes because TPS wants you to "Protect the Progress". We ask: What progress and at what cost?

And of course much more at WrongTaxWrongTime.com.

If the Urban League says to vote no, I will definitely vote for it.

There has GOT to be some way to fund schools that is more fair then what is used currently.
For years, it was levy's that taxed homeowners, even though many homeowner might not even have children, and many people with children in schools don't own homes, but rent.
Now they want to make it an income tax. Same problem, many wage earners don't have kids in school, and I wonder how many people with kids in school are living on welfare?

Personally, I don't have a dog in this race as my kids are grown and being retired, I don't pay Toledo tax.

This idiocy has gone on way too long. Shut down the Toledo schools-period. Or keep on with the "more taxes, and more democrats"approach. Maybe THIS time it'll work?
