Kettering School Levy Campaign Had Impressive Mailings

In the campaign to persuade Kettering voters to approve a new 6.9 mill property tax for Kettering Schools, I received six pieces of literature through the mail urging a “Yes” vote — all of impressive professional quality.  I’m on the list to receive all of the information sent to board members.  Most Kettering voters did not receive all six pieces of literature, but were targeted with specific literature according to a marketing strategy based on voter demographics. This was an expensive campaign.  As of early April, almost $19,000 was spent by the Political Action Committee, “Citizens for Kettering Schools.”  The levy request failed, but received 48% “Yes” votes.  A new levy campaign is planned for November.
