The ineptness of this column is beyond belief, a 10 year old has this understanding of politics in Mahoning County, why don’t you have more Mr. DeSouza? Munroe made his deal long ago with Wasko and Morley, and it continues with Betras, and they ALL want it that way.
I will call it the “lazy syndrome” and it affects not only our politics, it affects every part of life here in the valley including the Vindicator. Most of the government workers and elected officials don’t want to work, just collect a paycheck and most important for the government workers is PERS, but work, no.
I will give Betras credit, he does work, but the problem is he works at continuing the traditional corruptness that has plagued Mahoning County for decades. My understanding is that Betras is under investigation like Belinky it’s just not public yet. Haven’t we had enough wheeling and dealing? How about some new jobs!
For me the real crime is that this is happening right under the noses of you Mr. DeSouza and Mr. Skolnick. Betras should not be the source for your political stories and certainly his facts should be vetted, he is the world’s biggest liar and everyone knows that.
Some weeks ago someone posted on here that they should rename the Board of Elections the Board of Fixed Elections and I would have to agree. Until everyone is satisfied that their house is in order, all elections need to be questioned. All four board members need to resign and the two directors need to be let go. The Sheriff should monitor the board during elections to give the public confidence that the people they voted for are the winners, not the candidates that the board members know would play along with their games.

Sammarone will beat the pants off Belinky. Why is Belinky even running? Has he paid all of his parking tickets yet?
Engler is joking uptowngirl! Does he think we forgot how and why he resigned from the commissioners office (FBI) and then has his law license taken away by the OSC and now wants to be a judge! Only in Mahoning County, what a joke is right.
Very happy to see Carol the dolt will be done in May.
