Please consider contacting your OH State Rep and ask them to support HB597 that is coming out of committee for a vote to repeal Common Core. 


A legislative committee has signed off on a bill that would repeal Common Core standards in use in Ohio.

On a party-line vote with Democrats opposing, the Ohio House's Rules and Reference Committee gave its OK Nov. 5 to HB 597, setting the stage for vote of the full chamber. . .

Please also consider contacting Gov Kasich and encourage him to get on the "repeal Common Core" band wagon.  As a reminder, this is what Kasich said about CC back in Sept of this year: 

“Until somebody can show me we’re eroding local control, I see no reason to do anything. And I don’t think they’re (the House) going to do anything, to tell you the truth,” Kasich said. “In my judgment, it isn’t going to get to me, and if it does, it isn’t going to look anything like it is.” - See more at:

Here's the link to his online contact form:

Remind him that just because he won by an overwhelming majority doesn't mean we aren't going back to sleep (so to speak).  Demand that he support the repeal of Common Core NOW--thanks!

Many of you have probably received an oversized postcard in the mail listing on one side the "2014 Official Republican Slate Card" for the State of OH and on the flip side, would be the GOP's recommended candidates for local/county offices as well.

I can't help but wonder, how many folks across our state will receive this and simply take it with them to the polls and vote for the candidates on the card without doing any homework into exactly who these candidates are (for many, the simple fact that they are a Republican will be enough, but should it be?)

Please check your card to see if you live in the 5th District for the "State Board of Education". . .It includes the following counties: Ashland, Medina, Richland, Wayne plus Cuyahoga County outside of the city of Cleveland, Summit County outside of Akron, the northwestern corner of Holmes county and a small part of western Stark county. For map of State School Board Districts click here.

If you do live/vote in the 5th District, you will see that the GOP is encouraging you to vote for "Brad Lamb" for OH School Board. 

Mr. Lamb is a former Cuy. Cty bailiff and "former executive director of the county Republican Party." Last Fall, he ran (unsuccessfully) for Westlake City School Board (after resigning as the President of Fairview Park School Board because he and his family moved to Westlake)--he was defeated by 2 candidates who do support Common Core.  Last year, when he was running for WCSB, he gave voters the impression that he was against Common Core: 

. . ."Lamb has expressed caution in the past over the Common Core education standards, which Ohio is implementing this year."

"This is how Lamb answered the question for's voter gu...:"

The Common Core standards continue to be implemented in the State of Ohio. I support the need for consistent standards, however I am concerned with losing local control of the education of our students in an effort to teach to a test.  


In the October 16th issue of West Life, school board member Barb Leszynski and school board candidate John Finucane expressed their support for the Common Core State Standards.   Brad Lamb, the third candidate for school board, expressed concern over the Common Core. 

The article states that Finucane was surprised at Lamb's concern and is quoted as having said "He (Lamb) didn't seem to have as much background on it as he should have”.  

Leszynski said that Lamb's criticism of the Core Standards caused her to question his understanding of the Standards. 


During the October 1, 2013 League of Women Voters forum, school board candidate John Finucane made the point of stating that he would not use the school board seat as a "political stepping stone" and offered up fellow school board candidate Brad Lamb as "being on a political path”.

Earlier this year, Mr. Lamb was appointed by Gov. Kasich to fill a vacancy on the OH School Board (gee, did it have anything to do with him formerly being the head of the Cuy. Cty GOP???). Now that he is on the Kasich team, he supports Common Core: 

. . .Pushed for clarification this evening, Lamb said he now supports the Common Core.

"I was concerned about losing control over the education of our kids," Lamb said. He said he now thinks school boards have ways to opt out of the standards or set their own curriculum . . .

For those of you in the 5th District who will be voting for OH School Board, please know that there are a total of 4 candidates running for that seat; 2 Republians (Mr. Lamb and Brad Sawicki), 1 Independent (Michael J. Grusenmeyer); 1 Democrat (Roslyn Painter-Goffi)

Here are a few articles to get you started learning about these other 3 candidates:

Bottom line of my lengthy post is that just because the GOP endorses a candidate, doesn't that mean they are the best qualified candidate. Ask yourself, does that candidate represent what you want from your Ohio State School Board? Thanks for reading this long post—sorry for the length but just had to get this info out to you and hope that you will pass it along to your family and friends before we vote in November!

What do you all think about this? 

Bottle deposit petition approved by Ohio attorney general

. . .The constitutional amendment would require state lawmakers to pass a law establishing a 5- to 10-cent refundable deposit on all glass, metal and plastic containers sold at retail. Consumers could return the containers at refund centers to receive cash back. Businesses could also return containers, but would be required to give 80 percent back to the state to lower medical and automobile insurance costs for residents, according to the amendment language. . .

Just a reminder--you can go online to your County Board of Elections and print out a sample ballot for November's election. 

We always print it out in advance to (1) makes voting easier and (2) allows us to do a bit of research in advance, for example on the issues and the judges (usually, the Judges do not have a party affiliation listed on the ballot, but, we feel that their party is important as to how they may/maynot adjudicate).  

Just checked the Cuyahoga County BOE and am able to get my local ballot (city/district); I'm guessing that if it's available for one country, all counties should be available.

Remember how, despite the majority of Ohioans being against it, Kasich expanded Medicaid--guess he must have been talking to BHO and bought into his assertion: 

"Obama: Expanding Medicaid Under Obamacare Doesn't Cost You a Dime"

They both must have taken the same creative accounting class IMO!

Question for you good folks in SoOH. . .how come he isn't in his district campaigning?  Does he figure he's a shoo-in and not worried about his Dem challenger?
