Preface: This commentary is in regards to comments made in regards to the city school system administration in Toledo, Ohio.
Maggie Thurber in a comment introducing a photo that she placed on Facebook stated, "Toledo Public Schools blatantly violating the law by putting levy signs on school property... Even after I called the Superintendent's to warn them they were violating the law."
In that same message thread, she further wrote, "I gave them more than 3 weeks to get the signs down, which is plenty of time considering they shouldn't have been put up in the first place."
Then she wrote a bit more to which I responded, "I agree with the statement about Toledo Public Schools (Toledo Board of Education) made by Maggie Thurber, i.e. 'When an organization wants us to give them more money, they should play by the rules in that endeavor. It's against the law to use any public resources to promote a ballot issue. They were told in previous campaigns that it was illegal. They were told three weeks ago it was illegal and I was assured they would remove the signs. If they can't keep their word on such a basic issue, it raises issues of trust for everything else.' "
Here, in that the message thread is posted as public, you may read the entire thing for yourself; just open this embedded link:

I would really like to see Maggie Thurber (former member of the Board of Lucas County Commisioners and former Toledo Municipal Clerk of Court) write about that issue over on her blog, Thurber's Thoughts.
