Reason #3 why the Olentangy Levy is not needed

O'Brien, the latest addition to the Olentengy school board, has said that the district has "pledged to pursue budget reductions of about $5.5 million during the next three years.

Why is the district waiting UNTIL a levy passes before enacting the O'Brien reductions?

The current issue is overstated by millions. And O'Brien agrees with at least $5 million of that.

$5.5MM over the next three years, presuming FY's 11, 12, 13...

...that's $5.5MM out of a total of $528MM total, forecasted expenditure which is...1%.

And that $5.5MM is not real, of course. It's more fantasy save.

O'Brien seemed like a serious guy when he arrived on the board (albeit working for an un-serious company), but he folded like a chair at the first push-back from the other members of the board.

O'Brien is a big disappointment. I hope he's not running in November.
