Coalitions opposes anti-fracking ballot initiative
The Mahoning Valley Coalition for Job Growth and Investment, a group that helped defeat a Youngstown anti-fracking charter amendment in May, is urging city residents not to sign petitions to place a similar ballot initiative in front of voters in the November election.

City voters in May rejected the charter amendment 56.85 percent to 43.15 percent.
