What a silly battle

What a silly battle

EDITOR:

The possibility of V&M Star Steel pulling out of this area due to two cities fighting over 80 acres of contaminated property that nobody wants is beyond believe. It proves how and why this area never grows.

All of us should join hands, and make this area one, like other cities, yet we still try to hold onto nothing that’s left here.

Girard lost all or most of their industrial land; so did Youngstown.

Here we have the potential of $970 million project coming to this area, 500 jobs at $60,000 average, and we are going to send it down the tubes like Sheet & Tube Co.

So, Girard, will still have Jib-Jab Hot Dogs, Kuzman’s, the Golf Dome and Avon Oaks. Youngstown will have more vacant mills. Seems like a good trade.

It is a silly battle, but let's be clear, whatever jobs and tax money that comes from this will be minuscule in comparison to what's needed in order to truly improve the Mahoning Valley.

Silly is putting it mildly. Moronic would be more like it. This is an absolute no-brainer, which makes it even possible for a clueless mayor and his minions to get it, or get out of the way.

To bastardize George Carlin, they will only "OBSTRUCT".
