Am I reading this right? That the Mahoning Democratic Party was going to place the son of a current Common Pleas Judge on the ballot to run for another Common Pleas Judge position?
Thank God one clear thinking mind was able to prevail.

Please explain how you define an exhorbitant salary, and also explain how 15 positions should be preserved because they were low paying jobs.
Taken to the extreme, and I know this will sound silly, but the budget problems of YSU would be resolved by staffing the university with all the low paying jobs.
Please don't waste our time with the nonsense comments.

That would explain how Mr. Williams was elected Mayor of Youngstown over Mr. Hagan.

Mr. Polivka's choice to act against the written rules of the State and National Democratic Party rules regarding "party" related elections brings debate, attorneys, bantering and newspaper coverage.
The real question is why would he risk poor relations with the Ohio Democratic Party for a secret ballot? The offered reason of allowing committee persons to vote without a threat of being bullied is shallow if not completely empty.

In all the points made collectively by ytown37, Antiyoungstown (nice name) and tired2, no one considers that some parents will send their children to Mooney because they want their children to have continued exposure to the Catholic faith, or if not Catholic, the Christian faith, and if not Christian, then a school were moral discussion can take place in the classroom, where life has a higher place in the social order than death, and discussions regarding God can take place freely.
By the way tired2, wake up, you do not have a free public school. You have a very expensive public school, Hope the next time you see a parent sending their child to Mooney, or Ursuline or JFK, thank them for not using up the limited resources of public education.

Ladies and Gentleman:
There is a different between having a right to a particular action, and a particular action being legal.
There are many things that are legal, but are not rights. Driving a car, is legal, provided you meet the requirements of your state of domicile.
Driving a car however is not an "inalienable right" or something that cannot be taken away from the individual.
Be careful how you use the word "right".

The Vindy should not print such simple data from one source. It may well be accurate as well as misunderstood. Vindy, if you want to report the facts, report all the facts, the interpretation of the facts and stop being a mouthpiece for one side or the other.

Hope the developer can spell better than the Vindy.

$250 Billion dollars. That is a lot of money! Construction costs sure have gone up a lot in the Valley.

Honest Abe:You make some good points, not only is it ok to question authority, it is good to question authority, in a rational, logical, thoughtful and measured manner.
There are a lot of details we don't know, and a lot of assumptions that are being made. The end of your previous statement regard Bertram being a "hater" struck me, and caused me to review the previous posts.
Previous comments include the following direct representations of Bertram:
"I wondered for the last couple of days how Bert would put his negative slant to this one."
"It's funny how Bertram has conveniently left out so many details and just blurts out his trash thoughts."
"Bert also conveniently discounts that Tressel went through the same process as all of the other candidates."
"Will the Vindicator ever wake up and relieve its readers of this sarcastic little angry man?"
"Face it deScumbag, despite your ignorant pleas..."
"Because once things start going well, your stupid anti-everything rants will have even less meaning than they do now"
"Your irrelevancy around here just got that much greater."
"You are consumed by negativity "
"You miss the bigger picture all the time because you are so angry!"
You see, not one of the comments in today's posting is about anyone being a "hater". There are a lot of other descriptors like angry, and irrelevancy, but nothing about being a hater.
This is just a guess, but the use of the descriptors, and the motivation behind most of the respondents is not about this commentary, but about the many that have been read over the years.
Maybe this commentary is yet another "tipping point".
