Hamilton County GOP endorses city school levy

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The Hamilton County Republican Party on Wednesday endorsed the 6-mill levy requested by Cincinnati Public Schools.

        Party Chairman Joseph Deters said the school district's administration deserved a chance to earn the taxpayer's trust.

        “This is certainly not an approval of past performance by the Cincinnati public school system,” Mr. Deters said.

        “But it is an endorsement of the sweeping changes being implemented.”

        The party cited work led by Superintendent Steven Adamowski in teacher and school accountability as positive steps toward improvement.

        Schools spokeswoman Jan Leslie said the district is very pleased with the endorsement. The Republican Party did not endorse the previous two school levies.

        The levy would generate $35.8 million a year. It is designed to keep the district in the black for at least four years. If the levy passes, it would mean $184 a year in new taxes on a $100,000 home.
