Kettering school levy passes and new member to join incumbents on school board


Voters in the Kettering school district easily renewed a property tax levy Tuesday, according to final, unofficial results from the Montgomery County Board of Elections.

The 4.89-mill renewal levy won 73 percent to 27 percent.

The levy doesn't raise taxes but it does switch the property tax from being a 5-year levy to a continuing one.  

The levy will cost the owner of a $100,000 home $149.76 annually. 

Two incumbent school board members, Jim Ambrose and Julie Gilmore, were re-elected and Edward Breen also won. Gilmore got 31.8 percent, Ambrose received 31.2 percent and Breen received 19.7 percent of the vote. Darren Cooper lost with 17.4 percent..
