Ted Strickland? LOL: Ex-Gov. Ted Strickland lost his cell phone a while ago. Rather than keep the phone number when he got a new cell, he switched it. Typically, it takes several months for a canceled cell phone number to be given to someone else. But that’s not the case with Strickland’s old phone number. A short time after giving up the number, it went to someone else — a federal agent based in Cincinnati. That guy must get quite a few calls a month from people trying to contact the former governor. Hopefully for him, he has unlimited minutes.
Endorsement: In a close vote, the Mahoning Valley Democrat Club endorsed John A. McNally IV over Jamael Tito Brown in the Youngstown mayoral Democratic primary. The club also endorsed Michael Patrick among the four candidates running for three at-large seats for Struthers City Council. Only Patrick and Milton Gonzalez sought the club’s endorsement.
