Just trying to survive

Letters to the editor

— I’m getting tired of hearing all the sad stories around the county on how we no voters should vote yes on your levies. Can you tell me how we are going to support levies in the county when the higher ups want to make this a tourism county and the average wage is starting at $10 an hour? You don’t buy a new house on that wage. We are tired of hearing that it cost $100,000 to get a master in education. You know if you can’t afford it, don’t go after it. Myself I don’t care if my property values go down because I didn’t put myself in a big hole to buy a house and I don’t run out and buy a new car like some school board members think we do.

You know most no voters are just trying to survive and keep our families fed and put clothes on our backs and keep a roof over our heads. A lot of no voters know what is happening to our country and all the jobs that went overseas and went down south like the company in Ashtabula Township that left at the end of July.

They say that the yes voter is highly educated but for some reason they just don’t understand what “no” means. They think they have to have it their way. They all said jobs would come back if we built new schools. They were wrong. Every time these highly educated people try to tell us “no” voters on how good it’s going to be, they are always wrong.

Just remember no voters that the yes voters are going to say and do everything they can to get their way. Levies are not passing in the state of Ohio. The only way we are going to change things is to keep voting no because we will save our homes. Vote no.
