To the Editor: Weston man criticizes Otsego decision

The action taken last week by the Otsego School Board proves once again they could care less about the will of the people.
 It really bothers me that we have a board that changes their mind with whatever the direction the wind is going. I am tired of them talking out of both sides of their mouths.
We were told we would have our own community schools if we passed the high school bond issue. Now a new superintendent that was pro central campus and look what we have today. We have a very divided school district.
They are borrowing money knowing that the people will not pass another levy. How can we afford this while we are facing the highest unemployment numbers since the depression?
When they realize that they cannot pay their bond payments, we will have a complex in Tontogany that no one can use because the doors will be padlocked. We will not be able to use our existing buildings because they will already been torn down. Where will our children go school then? Bowling Green?
Maybe having the state of Ohio taking over our district will be a good thing. At least the present leadership will be gone.
We that are opposed to the way the board is behaving are not against giving the best to our children. We are also using our wonderful Otsego education to see that things are done right and people are held accountable. People vote their wallets and with their brain not their hearts.
