I recently read a story about an Akron woman who was charged with a felony and spent nine days in the Summit County Jail. Kelley Willams-Bolar is a single mother and was going to college and working for the Akron School System.[If anyone should know]
She illegally enrolled her two children in the Copley-Fairlawn School District where her father is a resident. There seems to have been a problem with resolving this issue without having to go to court for a felony charge, but that's another story.
Why bring this up here on the Painesville blog.?
Well, it seems to be a known fact that there are many illegal immigrants living in our city who legally send their children to Painesville City Schools. Will someone explain to me why these people are not taken to court and charged with the same statutes as Kelly Williams-Bolar? If you are not a citizen of the United States how can you possible be a resident of Painesville?
To those of you who believe we don't have a major illegal problem here in Painesville, why is it I see HOLA and/or Victoria Dahberg constantly asking for special treatment for people who are caught?
To some of you in the school administration; passing this levy will be harder than you might believe. I have heard a steady chorus from people who privately believe they are being ask to fund a social problem they choose not to be involved with.
