What does one get for ‘F’?

My opponent’s background is 12 years on Euclid School Board.  Let’s take a look at it.
The status of compensation in Euclid schools: elevated.
Please note, the compensation is shown in parts due to different assignments.

Daniel Esquevel made $165,000 last year.  Among other things he is a chef:  http://euclidschools.org/our-district/euclid-culinary-bistro
How many people in NEO Media Group or in Euclid make more than $165,000?  Got openings in cafeteria?

Four years ago Lincoln Elementary in Euclid sported an average salary over $75,000.  http://buckeyeinstitute.org/school-data  
That’s with summers off, significant benefits, sizable pensions, etc.  Although this particular school closed, the compensation kept getting more elevated via contracts with automatic pay raises.

How many tax levies has Euclid in 12 years had to pay for this?  By my count there were 7 attempts with 3 passing.  There may be more, it’s getting harder to count.  This is not going to stop: there is one more levy coming very shortly:

I understand North East Ohio Media Group has a lot to cover and it probably didn’t look into Euclid compensation or tax levy trends.  Did anyone at North East Ohio Media Group look into Euclid school performance?  Maybe all that money is worth it?

F.  That’s the grade for Euclid City schools on the report card done by Ohio Department of Education.  There is now too little difference between Euclid and East Cleveland.  The number of six figure salaries in Euclid schools is revolting.  Again, that’s with summers off, significant benefits, sizable pensions, etc.

Who presided over this disaster?  My opponent, Kent Smith.  12 years on school board, the entire time, the longest serving member.  He even got awards for such failure.  Awards from the very interest groups that lobby for elevated compensation.
There is at least one October surprise coming.  We have had very strong suspicions that a person with such awful performance running for public office probably has other problems to be exposed.  We are preparing press releases.



The main reason why Kent Smith never missed a school board meeting: he gets paid for each meeting.  Take a look at his lack of steady job, business, or address.


Just like the case with Fitzgerald, the Democratic Party didn’t vet Kent Smith either.
