Chamber does not support Issue 3Written by Kristen Criswell | | firstname.lastname@example.org
The Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce Board of Trustees announced April 30 that it does not support Issue 3.
The chamber chose to not support the Toledo Public Schools levy because if passed it”will not address the systemic financial issues that are currently paging the district and which will continue to affect the district‚s budgets in the future,” according to a press release.
The chamber said the levy will harm the job climate by increasing the overall tax burden.
The chamber is concerned for the difficulties that face the district, but believes the necessary decisions need to be made by TPS to address the growing deficits projected over the next four to five years. The chamber believes further cuts in state funding face TPS and the district should face the reality of their budgetary concerns.
