Joe Paloski, who is challenging Mahoning County Commissioner Carol Rimedio-Righetti in May’s primary, said his solution to provide housing for the Mahoning Valley’s women veterans is more cost effective than his opponent’s.

Paloski criticized Rimedio-Righetti’s plan to open a 21-bed facility for homeless veterans in Oakhill Renaissance Place as costly and ill-advised.

Palsoki suggested working with the Mahoning County Land Bank to find houses where female veterans can live, citing the Cleveland nonprofit group Women of Hope Inc. as an inspiration.
