Cleveland Taxpayers - Why has Issue 107 been crafted top down - by the GCP, the Cleveland Foundation etc - excluding you?

 When I read today's Dirty Dealer Editorial endorsing Issue 107, one paragraph stuck me in the eye like a sharp stick:

"The reforms were crafted with all of the key players involved -- Mayor Frank Jackson, Gordon, Cleveland Teachers Union President David Quolke, business leaders, foundations and a bipartisan Ohio General Assembly."

The Dirty Dealer Editorial board missed mentioning PARENTS.    

IMHO, the CMSD has the best chance of improvement in student outcomes if it is  taken over by the State. 

And,  I must add, that the Editorial is the weakest, most unconvincing, un-rationalized piece of writing I have read in a long time.  Long time.... Advance Publications is barely crawling now.... not much longer..   Hey Roldo - will you give the eulogy!?

Roldo doesn't care...

Thanks Jeff--I agree.  Unfortunately, Roldo has some serious blinders when it comes to the players at CMSD and the Land Bank.  Both controlled by the same folks who like to use other peoples' money to make $$$. Tax dollars.

Media spin is their specialty...paying taxes...not so much:
