The school system has suffered through "lean times," Geary told board members.....

Where has this guy been? LEAN TIMES????? Come out of the classroom and look around Mr. Geary to what the taxpayers provide this schools, new buses, up-to-date textbooks, supplies, over priced administrators, made up high paying positions at the county office for good old boys and girls.....lean times??? Is this guy for real? 100 plus staff over the state formula and we have went through lean times? Don't think so!

Let's hope that the Marshall County voters remember who voted to keep the levy rate at 98% when election time comes for these board members. Apparently John Miller is the only one that can't be bought. They're keeping the high levy rate to fund the high administrator raises.

It's so good to see that tax payers are waking up to the fact that they have been taken on a long. long ride on school funding & SPENDING. We have been subjected to a bunch of beggers who keep feathering their nests.

Mr. "Gary" is a mouthpiece for Fast Freddy. If you notice, he is always Freddies biggest supporter. Funny thing is though, while Freddy is handing out free car seats and diaper bags to teen mothers, Mr. Geary's AP program has to hold fundraisers! Geary and his wife are both teachers, so I guess they don't need any tax breaks.

These females and males on the board who permitted this travesty to happen are the lowest form of public servants one can have in office. They could have easily made a symbolic gesture and thrown the TAXPAYERS a bone. I applaud Mr. Kessler for fighting the good fight and showing the public "the emperor has no clothes". Unfortunately Mr. Lewicki will probably not run again and the ignorant masses will probably forget by the next election.

Hey "Karen Sue", I don't suppose you are the same person that stole about $25K from the JMHS yearbook about 10 years ago? Looks like you got your levy tax money all in advance! Keep that RV you bought for retirement all clean and spiffy!
