North Royalton Ward 3 & Community E-Newsletter: September 2020 (Volume 1)

Greetings Residents,

As a former North Royalton School Board Member, Cuyahoga Valley Career Center Board Member, North Royalton City Councilman and United States Army Veteran, I truly love serving my country and community through public service.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit our community, our city was already in trouble with the dysfunctional city government leading it.  Serving in the minority of City Council, I began to blow the whistle on these serious issues. I even successfully led a historic community effort against the mayor’s unilateral closure of our city jail and saved it. But the majority did not like that at all. They resorted to grimy politics, deleting public records, trying to get me kicked out of my church, violating my constitutional rights, led a mutiny against me to force me out as a duly elected official and the list goes on.

No doubt politics is a very dirty business, but when they targeted my 13 year old step son’s race and other family members for sport it became very personal. I have taken the time these last few months from it all so my family and I could heal and grow from this horrific experience. I have more desire than ever before to make sure the community has a voice. So many residents like you have contacted me, helped with the healing process, expressed your personal experiences of how you have been hurt by officials in our city government, and urged me to retake my seat on council.

I am ecstatic to announce that I will be re-running to earn back my Ward 3 City Council seat with your vote and support in the November 2021 General Election. I am confident that with an entirely new City Council and majority that we can make North Royalton a better city for all our families.

This is the first volume of my new and improved E-Newsletter to help keep you up to date on what is going on with our City Government, Community, and ways we can work together to advocate for the changes we need to help clean up City Hall.

Please feel free to contact me if I can be any service to you or your family.  I look forward to earning your support so that I can successfully return back to City Council and work even harder for all of you.

Ward 3 Quick Update August 19, 2015

Ward 3 Resident,

Just wanted to give you a quick update on a few things.

Back to School Safety Reminders
The North Royalton City School District is back in session today August 19th. Please be careful driving in school zones. Schools buses will back on the roads and students will be crossing streets throughout Ward 3 to catch those buses. Be mindful of the posted speed limits of 25mph in the residential areas of our ward as well and keeping the appropriate distance away from buses when they stop. Also when parking on city streets to wait for the school bus. Do not park your vehicle within 30 feet in front of a stop sign. You could get cited for being in violation of this particular city parking ordinance. I wish all kids in our ward who are returning back to school a great 2015-2016 school year!

Statement by North Royalton School Board Member Dan Langshaw on Proposed School Improvement Bond Issue at May 10, 2012 Special Board Meeting

Tonight’s vote on a Resolution of Necessity is the first of two resolutions to put a 35 year $54,300,000 School Improvement Bond Issue on the November 6, 2012 General Election Ballot. This vote is not a cause for celebration. As a School Board Member, 2004 North Royalton High School graduate, an older brother of three siblings who have been educated in our school district, and someday in the future have kids who will be in this district; I know there is a necessity to fix our aging buildings to maintain education in the North Royalton City School District.

Beginning in 2003 the district has conducted assessments and reviewed alternatives to address our facilities’ needs. None of the proposed solutions was considered feasible given cost and timing issues. The proposal we are considering now is half the cost of prior proposals and provides a solution for decades. It disturbs me though that school districts like ours are forced to confront our facilities issues with no assistance from the state. Governor Kasich and the Ohio General Assembly have done nothing to channel Ohio School Facilities funds to districts such as ours. We all must continue to voice our concerns to the Governor and our lawmakers in Columbus!

Our economy is still trying to recover, I hear from many constituents that they are just trying to get through these tough times. The timing for a bond issue may not be the best for folks, but we have reached the point where doing nothing is no longer an option. Our students and community deserve a plan on how to fix our school buildings up in a financially responsible manner for our long term future. As a leader it is unacceptable to play politics and kick this problem down the road for another Board to worry about for another decade. A major issue like this Bond Issue should not be decided by a 5 person Board but all the residents of this community.

I will support this first resolution and the second resolution to put this issue on the November Ballot for a vote of the people. No one wants to see a tax increase at any time. But the district cannot make the necessary improvements without any money. If this Bond Issue passes, I want to be on the record to say I plan to thoroughly examine and discuss any expenditure request to use these funds. Fiscal discipline is critical!

As a United States Army Veteran I believe in our American Democracy and the right to vote as citizens. The people need to decide: Is this an investment they can afford? We need to respect whatever they tell us at the polls with their vote in November. I think it is very positive that this Board has a long-term plan and priority list on what needs to be done to bring our buildings up to par. We as Board Members are fulfilling our responsibility to give the people a chance to decide this issue. Let’s not forget we work for them.

In closing I encourage all residents to get engaged in this process. Come to a SCENE Meeting, School Board Meeting, and most importantly JUST VOTE! If you are not registered to vote you can get more information on how to by going on the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections Website at http://boe.cuyahogacounty.us or call 216-443-3200. Your vote matters and it’s up to the people to decide the future of the North Royalton City School District.
