OK, HERE WE GO AGAIN TOLEDO!

OK, TOLEDO, HERE WE GO AGAIN: Bob Vasquez, sitting school board member, is officially running for the vacant seat on Toledo city council. If he wins and knowing the voting history of Toledoans, he probably will, he will then join Ford, Steel and Sykes who were on the school board and ran TPS into the ground. I guess they will finish off Toledo.

Democratic Party and the Toledo Public School Board

The Democratic party in Toledo has pretty much sounded the death knell for Toledo Public Schools, along with the help of Republican party. For years the Democrats have run candidates for the school board that have no interest in making changes, improving academics, educating the populace or challenging the unions, especially the TFT. The Republicans have never run a credible candidate other than Chris Myers, when he ran with the "Three for Change." That was the closest Toledo came to actually saving TPS.

Wow! Obama as well as the Mayor, Gerken, and the School Board still really don't get it...

Obama still doesn't get it, a Republican 60 seat swing including his previously owned Dem seat in Chicago ,and he gets on TV and says the results of Tuesday election were because we (Obama ) didn’t do enough fast enough. This guy is really out of touch.

Don't Forget To Vote Democrat, And For All The Levies, So They Can Keep Stealing Our Money......

For those of you who see the corruption in Toledo, make the change and don't fall for this crap oh! its for the children, or we won't have any transportation (Tarta) or any other idol threat to get your money....... Send a message Tue, the buck stops with the people....

Toledo Public School's Actions Over the Past 15 Years Have Had a Chilling Effect on the Black Community.

September 30, 2010

Press Release:

Toledo Public Schools actions over the past 15 years have had a chilling effect on Toledo's black community.

TPS Pulls A Carty..Oh Look We Found 824,000 Dollars...

Toledo Public Schools says we found 824,000 dollars that wasn't recorded. Hell no it wasn't recorded until they heard about an audit. But wait lets here what McCaskey, Purhrt, Pinkslip, and Wolfie have to say before they vote for the 7.8 million dollar levy that the TPS wants so they can continue to have accounting irregularities..

Does It Really Matter Who is the TPS Superintendent?

It really does not matter who is the superintendent of the Toledo Public School System as long as none is willing to stand up against the TFT and the Lawrences. None of the entities that could make a difference in the school system is willing to engage the TFT in a battle to make any changes benefiting students or even their own rank and file.

They would rather lay off fellow union brother's and sister's than take a larger paycut that would not impact them any more than people working in the private sector have been impacted.

Larry Sykes on the Board dysfunction, Larry Sykes off the Board cooperation, Larry Sykes on the Board dysfunction

Anybody notice a pattern here?

Toledo Public School Board Meeting-Transparency Where?

I witnessed the Toledo Public School Board of Education meeting tonight and it was a barrel of laughs, around the "horseshoe" many concerns by myself and other spectators and maybe violations of the sunshine laws, by the board members. But then what do you expect, that was how Three for Children was born, Larry Sykes (he's baacck), Deborah Barnett and Steve Steel.

Current theft from TPS almost 700k

Remember this theft happened while Larry Sykes and Eugene Sanders stood up with their financial oversight committees and said everything is good, trust us. TPS continued to say trust us, then Dan Burns gets caught in Cleveland. TPS scrambled saying we have no clue how much he took from us. Well now we trust you never will look after our money even when you tell us to trust us. For many years, board members including Larry Sykes said that the rest of the State looks up to us. Well I don't know how may districts had 700k stolen from them right under their noses.

Former TPS business manager Burns mysteriously becomes very corrupt in Cleveland - is indicted - hints TPS situation is worse

Wow, who would have thought Dan Burns would be indicted for stealing money in Cleveland. What could have caused such a praised man here in Toledo to mysteriously become corrupt. Larry Sykes, when he was on the board before, said everyone looks up to TPS and had nothing but praise for Dan Burns. One has to wonder why he went to the dark side so quickly or was it quick????

From the Plain Dealer, the only newspaper to follow this story.

Larry Sykes in his own words

The following quotes came from the City Papers' April 6, 2005 edition in an article titled, "The harried citizen’s guide to Toledo Board of Education President Larry Sykes"

"She got caught like Janet Jackson, with her [profanity filter won't let it be posted] out." talking about Francine Lawrence

"She reminds me of a dog that can’t pass a fire hydrant without urinating on it." referring to Anita Lopez

"She has gotten those jobs not on her ability but basically because she’s a Mexican with a law degree and a female." referring to Anita Lopez

Scary Larry - it's a sign

Larry Sykes, most likely the dumbest person to have ever held elected office in the area as well as one of the biggest racists in Lucas County, has ticked off a lot of people. He has ticked off so many people that one person took his/her time to create a sign highlighting Larry's comments using one of Ben Konop's large signs, and then nailed it up on at least one telephone pole (in the Broadway/Segur area to be specific). A user on this site had the opportunity to see it and grabbed it for me. I really wish I knew about this before the election because I would be happy to have posted this before. The poster, which you can see a larger version of by clicking on the attachment below, details Larry's wonderful remarks about Anita Lopez, calling her a Mexican and only able to get jobs because she was a Mexican and a female (again those are Larry's words not mine). Anyway, now that he is back on the school board, for the next 4 years he will be sure to cause much embarrassment and humiliation to the board and the district given his past antics. Everyone have your cameras ready because Larry Sykes is a viral video waiting to happen.
