The intention of this letter is to urge the citizens of the Otsego Local School District to vote for the following three candidates for the Otsego School Board: Brad Anderson, Judith Snyder and Mark Tolles. These persons are eminently qualified and will provide the educational and fiscal guidance so sorely needed by the board.
The Otsego District is facing onerous financial difficulties that will be increased if current board policies are continued. For instance, the present board has rigidly maintained the plan set forth with the Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC), which, if followed, will over-extend our resources as well as destroy any possibility of the persistence of elementary buildings in Grand Rapids, Haskins and Weston. Furthermore, the board has attempted to fund a portion of Otsego's OSFC share without seeking voter approval! Additionally, it seems financially irresponsible to assume more debt when other government funding sources are both transient and unstable. Other options exist and should be considered.
Voting for Anderson, Snyder and Tolles will ensure the board's actions of the future will be tempered by the will of our citizens.
