TPS Board Members lack of public communication

Just got off the phone with TPS board member Bob Vasquez. We (family, friends, block) have been trying to have communication with the TPS board since November 2009 having sent some 153 e-mail messages and well over 30 phone calls. After some 6 months and after the levy failed then they want to finally meet with us. Can you belive that? We begged for communication and a meeting long before the levy vote and they wait until after the levy fails to see that we did have power and now they want to meet with us.

Exclusive: TPS's first TV income tax levy commercial titled "It will get ugly"

Given this was sent to me from someone at the production house, it is missing the disclaimers, the intro and the ending. I am told the intro segment will say, "Don't let things get ugly." Then the normal exit segment, "Vote for the Toledo Public School levy in May" with the normal campaign committee disclaimers at the end. Makes the point doesn't it?

TPS says cuts to be "ugly", help make TPS beautiful again

This past week, I threatened to bring http://ideasfortps.com back to life after the host switchover this past summer and make it safer from spammers and now the Toledo Public Schools needs it more than ever especially trying to toss an almost 1% income tax increase on all of us. I uploaded some of the older ideas. I was not able to recover anything, but it is now open for business for you to submit your own idea and vote and comment on the ideas that are posted on there. If you have a great idea, you can now submit it there.
