Campaign themes


In an interview with Journal News, Weigel stated that "a little new blood is a good thing; new ideas and new perspective. I am running for the community because I care for Hamilton City Schools and I am a product of Hamilton City Schools.”[3]

What was at stake?

Incumbents George N. Jonson, Glenn Stitsinger and Anna Harvey sought re-election to the board. They were will be challenged by newcomers Weigel, Steven Isgro and Arthur Roden. The district was dealing with poor performance in the latest report card issued by the Ohio Department of Education. This report from the 2012-2013 school year indicated that students only met 58.3% of performance indicators and earned an F in terms of annual measurable objectives.[4]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one- or two-tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[7] This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
