Our local officials, weak as they have been, have done nothing but follow the lead of our federal government. They have learned all too well the "Me first" approach. Too few of our local officials place the well being of our community as their number one priority. There are some signs of change including the election of Mr. Meacham but we're going to have to pay one hell of a price for our indifference in the past before we're put back on a proper track.

Like so many words from politicians, we now see the hollowness of the total transparency that was promised.

I've worked both sides of the fence. In retrospect, it always seemed to me that the labor organizations were demanding more at each juncture of negotiations with little or no concern as to why the corporate side felt unable to meet those demands. Profitability of the corporation, in any amount, seemed to generate new labor demands. Yes, there are two sides to these stories, however, to survive, both sides must listen and use common sense. It looks like those ingredients were missing here.

Like all new ideas; sounds great. Try to apply it in Trumbull County and it will be a failure. Despite laws to correct wrongs and help we citizens, some things never change.

The giving of a bonus in the governmental sector is like a kick in the shins to we the taxpayers. The idea that all budgeted monies must be used each fiscal year so that more can be demanded next year is reprehensible but, somehow, accepted by those in government with access to out tax dollars.

An old but effective management technique, walk into a new position and fire someone within the first day or two. It sure gets everyone's attention and perks up the indifferent employees. Now to find someone who can be totally trusted as 2nd in command. Mr. Meacham is off to a great start.

Mr. Sciortino just proved what a sleaze he is.

Mr Meacham appears to be a highly professional individual who is well motivated. I wish him well in his new position. It appears that we are fortunate to have him in our employ.

The writers seem to forget the situation on our southern border. It remains politically correct to give no mention to the fact that these folks, too, are not vaccinated.

As we approach Valentine's Day, I can only hope no others see Mr. Cutlip's approach to impressing a girlfriend as being proper.
