Hagan to run for state board of education

Published: Thu, July 24, 2014 @ 9:33 a.m.

State Representative Robert F. Hagan (D-58, Youngstown) today announced that he will seek the Eighth District seat on the Ohio State Board of Education. Representative Hagan, who is leaving the General Assembly due to term limits, said he is seeking the post because it will enable him to continue working to improve primary and secondary education in the state of Ohio.

Bob Hagan has bragged publicly for years that he graduated at the bottom of his class at Ursuline. He did not attend college. He has no noteworthy achievements relating to education (or anything else for that matter) after decades in the state legislature, both as a Representative and Senator.

What are his qualifications to advise on education policy? None.

Will local voters elect him? Probably.

WillyP, It appears that Bobby has done okay for a guy that finished at the bottom of his class and didn't attend college. Not endorse him, but hard to criticize one achievements with the kind of reasoning your giving.

I considered correcting your grammar, above, but considered it a lost cause.

Getting elected and then accomplishing nothing thereafter is not a record of achievement.

As long as Youngstown continues to elect non-performers like this, Youngstown will get what it deserves.

Hagan is a complete and total waste.

He has absolutely no credentials to serve on the board. I hope that the voters are not baffled by his BS ( I do not mean the degree he is lacking) and kick his butt to the curb.

Willy somethings are done to intentionally provoke others to believe what isn't. You do realize we have a republican state that every city within the state is economically trudging to get by. Like I've said in other stories, this isn't one party or the other. It's both. Both parties put their own self preservation before the vary people they are suppose to be representing. I just find it amusing that anybody would believe one man and or party is responsible for our local, state or federal debacle. Look to the deeply republican states (not localities) and their record across the board as to their education system, metal health services, crime rates, and poverty rates. I have family and friends that live in Texas, AZ, FL, AK, AL, and none have it any better than I have it here. They all do have a higher cost of living with similar paying jobs, despite all having the minimum of BS/BA. None of this started six years ago.

Another "do nothing career politician" looking for another public paycheck and as always, this area will vote for the name and/or party. Just as they did when his unqualified wife ran for office.

According to an article from the Vindicator, Bob Hagan only recently received an "Honorary Diploma" from Ursuline High School a few years ago. He did not graduate with his class, this was well into his second decade of public service. Billdog, WilliamP has a VALID point. Most jobs in the United States require at least the minimum of a high school education. Isn't it ridiculous that someone with a complete lack of formal education (Republican or Democrat, what's the difference?) would run for the highest school board in the state? Think about it. What kind of an example does that show? A person voted into an office pertaining to educational matters should have an education. This is by far the most ludicrous thing that family has announced all year... and as we all know, they've been throwing out some serious amounts of crazy.
