Carl Albright, what a joke. The employees have high morale?? Really?? Its obvious that he is still so out of touch with what the average communicator there experiences on a daily basis.
As for all the "stories" about Infocision, believe them. I know from experience.

Melfi did not negotiate hard, quite the opposite. He knew in late 2008 that annexation of property was part of the deal and neglected to inform council of it until such time the company was up against deadlines, thus putting the expansion in jeapordy. Moreover, Melfi's desire not to negotiate in good faith, prompted council to take action, which ultimately saved the deal.
A 50/50 split of tax revenues was always part of the original agreement, contrary to what Melfi has inferred since the agreement was reached.

Dont be so hasty with giving the Mayor of Girard any credit. He almost singlehandly lost the project for the valley with his obstructionist tactics.
Mayor Williams and Girard City council made this possible in spite of Melfi. Shame is that Melfi will pimp this to further his own political agenda, lets hope the voters dont forget what he really did and what role he really played in all this.

"Part of his record as an elected official" and a testimony to his lack of character and regard for his fellow citizens. One good deed, while a positive sign, does not erase years of misdeeds.
Lets hope the Vindy keeps these comments in mind before they give a blanket endorsement to Melfi before the next mayoral election. Melfi, almost singlehandedly, cost the valley the V&M project with his obstructionist bantering.

"student-athletes did not receive adequate rules education during the time period the violations occurred."
Then Tressel should be fired!!!! The buck stops with him. OSU is a joke of a program and a joke of a university. And people wonder why so many people around here root for other programs.

And this is the same county engineer who wanted to add an additional 5 dollar tax to license plates under the guise of fixing roads. Good thing Trumbull county voters turned him down.

900 new jobs???? Your kidding right?? How many "temporary" employees of that number at Lordstown are being REPLACED by higher wage workers from other states??
I know of a couple people who work there and I can tell you based on their experiences, Lordstown is doomed.
