Todd, I have a track meet in your beautiful Poland this Saturday, but I may be convinced to help out some. I have done this kind of thing before. How long do you think the FIRST party will last on Saturday?

I am still clueless why people don't want to live in Youngstown...

I often feel I am in a race with the economy while living here. The price keeps going up and the pay either stays the same or in many cases ends. I have curtailed greatly the way that I live. I am not sure what the answer to this problem is as it will not be picked up by growing tax proceeds from younger workers.
With all this population loss, at what time do we have the conversation about re-structuring our government to match the new reality?
Many politicians do not understand the appeal for Trump and Sanders who are candidates that want to totally shake up the current way of doing government business. That is the main point, our current political system is failing us and they are part of it. We want real change, not less for more. Perhaps less for less might be a way to think about future goals.

I work 50-60 hours a week, every week. I write at least 8 checks a month. Pick a charity, like St. Vincent de Paul and get it over with. If he took the time to write a check for $1000, he could have just as easily made it $46,469. The district is obviously better off with an honest dude like John Boccieri in the office. Disclaimer: I do not live in the district and have no ties to Boccieri other than meeting him several times and watching his career. Get something done as your final civil service act Ron! Just do it!

Job loss is rampant in the valley. Cuts are needed to reflect the suffering of the constituents. It is a shame that safety forces are the first on the chopping block. It would be better to break open contracts and save as many jobs as possible by spreading the pain among the union membership and appointed positions. My guess is that the 70 attendees at this meeting supporting the levy were city officials, employees and their families. I really feel for them because this economy truly sucks and is a constant drain on the wealth of this entire nation, However, I would wager that the tax will go down in defeat. So, as well as push the tax, some contingent plans should be developed.

All we need to do to see how illegal this act of skimming money for local projects off the top of water and sewer proceeds is to allow all the water districts along the delivery trail to skim what ever they want off the top of their revenue streams then the people in Liberty township will be paying $100 per gallon of water before you know it.

Did I read that Sean O'Brien also had early knowledge of this Youngstown Plan based on the governor's statements?

I think that the parents and students of Youngstown City Schools should shove it up the Governor's behind by starting to actually take school seriously and learn. That would show him!

I am just so happy that the water customers of Youngstown have that nice new parking deck downtown in order to park to pay their bills. Cause that's what's important. After all drinking our water is equivalent to "drinking soda pop" all day. Nothing new here folks, move along and continue paying your bills in person and parking at your new parking deck.
