lajoci & billdog,
These two coconuts are the reason people need to vote no on taxes. To them there is no end in taking taxpayers money for themselves and family. They are like parasites and feed off your money. When is enough enough. They take surveys of their family and run with it. So many news agencies, independent studies even this paper has wrote about the difference in health-care contributions between private and public. There's a talk show host in the afternoon who always says his contribution is $600 a month for his family coverage. What do you pay 10 bucks. Again when it comes to taxpayers money they got their hand in your pocket like a common thief.

Is there just one of these school systems where they contribute 25% toward their health-care like the private sector does. Boardman is just now going to 10%. You're 15% off. All these school levies need voted down.

No increase in their health-care contribution. Vote no.

NoBS, Why are you so special? Are you mentally challenged, feeling entitled to taxpayers money or just plain a double dipper that got their hand caught in the cookie jar? Stop with that high almighty attitude. Doesn't work with the taxpayers.

Paying 25% toward one's health-care plan is fair. That's about the average in the state of Ohio and the country. Another solution would be to give the union worker a lump some of whatever they paying now toward health-care. So if they are paying $200 a month give them a lump sum of $2400 instead every year and they could go out and buy there own. This nutty union thug is trying to extort the university for a $6000 stipend. That adds up to $500 a month contribution. I don't think these union people are paying $500 a month now. So the union put that figure out there, YSU should then ask for a $500 monthly contribution.

The county spent millions that they didn't have giving themselves unjustified raises. Some as high as a 40% raise. There should be no support of any part of this tax until they pay the taxpayers back.

We're cool now. "What IRS scandal" just named an Ebola czar. Heard Jay Williams was highly considered but he didn't watch enough episodes of Grey's Anatomy.

The commissioners just gave out millions and millions of taxpayers money in the way of raises to all. Some raises were as high as 40%. With that, they did not ask for any increase in their health-care contribution . The people they are asking more money from pay twice as much. We continue to have corruption and indictments within the county. They get free designated drivers for when they drink too much. There is no accounting on the costs to date for Oakhill. Taxpayers money continues to be plowed into this boondoggle. the commissioners have done absolutely nothing to try and cut costs. Vote no.

Youngstown politicians should consider reducing that ridiculous 2.75 tax to keep people and businesses from moving out. Instead, they are giving out 2.5 to everyone with no increase in their health-care contribution. Also there are 170 upper management personnel employed for the city. Don't you think that's a little high for the population it has. Too many 3 piece J.C. Penney suits wandering around not doing anything. Cut the tax rate.

Your Sheetz coffee club card should be good enough to cast a vote and buy a few guns.
