Crucial levies for E. Guernsey, Switzerland of Ohio schools voted down

CINCINNATI (AP) - About 60 percent of Ohio school issues on this week's ballots have been approved.
The Ohio School Boards Association says unofficial results indicate 116 of 192 issues passed Tuesday. The overall approval rate is higher than last year's 55 percent. Of school issues on ballots for the first time, only 36 percent passed. That's a rate of rejection for first-time issues similar to the November 2012 election.
Voters in Columbus on Tuesday soundly rejected a proposed tax hike for city schools.
In our area, voters rejected two school levy proposals that were on the ballot, one for the East Guernsey School District, the other for the Switzerland of Ohio School District.
