SPRINGBORO, Ohio (WDTN) - New campaign signs are popping up in Springboro ahead of the city's school board elections.
"I keep saying it's disappointing," said Charles Anderson. "But it is."
That was the Anderson had when he saw the new signs popping up in Springboro.
His own name has been added underneath two other candidates for three open school board positions.
"There's just no room for the deception," said Anderson. "This is deceptive."
It is because Anderson already has his name attached to two other candidates that are running as a three-person campaign.
The PAC who created the signs say it is their opinion of who is focused on what is most important.
"When we look at what a role of a school board member is," said David Petroni. "It's strictly to advocate for children."
It is a role Educate Springboro, the PAC who put up the signs, said the three candidates, Charles Anderson, David Bitner, and Kolton Vaugh, bring to the table.
Two of the current board members, however, currently sit on Springboro's school board.
It has Anderson crying foul.
"I think it's pretty unprecedented that two sitting board members take such an active role in future board members," said Anderson.
2 News wanted to know if the decision would already create some division within the school board between the current and newly elected members.
"The interesting thing about this is that I think we are rejecting the contention that one campaign, or one party, has the right to decide who should be elected," said Petroni. "There are five individuals. I believe we bridge that with our recommendations."
Petroni agrees that politics should stay out of it since board members should mainly be focused on the children.
The campaign supporting Anderson said they will be filing a complaint with the Ohio Ethics Commission.
Educate Springboro said there is nothing wrong with what they are doing.
The two other candidates attached to the new ads say they were not part of the new signs. The Bitner/Vaughn campaign did agree that the election should be about students instead of voting for one entire ticket of candidates.
