Cleveland teacher’s union president files elections commissions complaint against anti-levy group

Cleveland.com |

The Cleveland teachers’ union president filed a complaint with elections officials that said a mysterious group with support from at least one local real estate developer listed a false address on mailers to discourage voters against a property tax renewal and increase to benefit the city’s public school system.

The group in question aims to sink Issue 68, which would renew a property tax levy that accounts for 12% of Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s budget and add 5 mills to cover expenses.
