Group Spends Under $300 On Pettisville School Levy Campaign

Citizens For Pettisville Schools, a campaign committee that supported a 3.5-mill permanent improvement levy, spent $291.91 on the campaign.

That was just part of the information gleaned from the committee’s campaign finance report, filed with the Fulton County Board of Elections.

In the May 4 primary election, voters in the Pettisville School District were asked to approve a continuing 3.5-mill permanent improvement levy. Voters had approved the levy every five years.

The May 4 vote converted the levy so it will be collected on a continuing basis. It will be collected without requiring a renewal vote.

The campaign committee paid $173.20 to Steve Switzer, district superintendent, for paper, postage, and mailing labels; and $110.79 to the school district for envelopes, labels, and copies.

Brent King, rural Wauseon, the treasurer of the Citizens for Pettisville Schools committee, received a reimbursement of $7.92, which was listed as postage for returned mailers.

Contributions to the campaign came from the members of the Pettisville School Board. John King, Dan Bruner, Dan Sauder, rural Wauseon, and Tom Beck, rural Archbold, each gave $58.38 to the campaign.

Loren Roth, rural Wauseon, donated $58.39.

Voters approved the levy, 226 to 158. The cost per vote for each yes vote was about $1.29.
