Statutorily the number of Democrats and Republicans at local Boards of Elections must be even. I do believe the IT Director at the local Board is registered Republican so they in fact may have an additional spot.

Probably should apologize to both of them. You are one of the most sound thinking posters on this Board --emotion gets to all of us..

Hey Kurt W-are we all wrong here or are we truly missing some type of journalistic brilliance? This guy is LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME

Kdubs-Beauty on the Terrapenis-most interesting comment you have come up with yet. You totally disregard the statements I've made so the following: In your opinion do you feel Bertram is objective. Do you not agree that his repetitions of dead stories shows a lack of initiative? Do you not see how a reasonable paper might want to have another journalist who has not disregarded public safety and traffic violations 2x handle DUI matters. Do you not see the almost personal disdain for certain public officials and unabashed commitment to others-He continually bashes long-time trough feeding politicians-However folks like the double-dipping Tablack, Sammarone, Wellington-they were idealized. Do you feel he has been equal in his treatment of the Oakhill money pit? You don't have to answer, just curious. Oh finally, do you support his continued bashing of people who again have done wrong, and many paid dearly, in an almost juvenile, redundant way-even those who are now DEAD? Is that at least a little distasteful to you, I mean any of those things less than above-board?

Oh yeah Ytown the fault in this matter has been squarely placed on Dellick and his parents which is most likely accurate. My aforementioned description would have been SOCIETY'S fault right??? Not single parent homes, absent gaurdians or the behavior of most example setting role models......Wise up.

Yogi my comment was this: He has not been convicted of anything so really what do you truly know about it. Again, innocent until proven guilty. I justified none of his behavior, however should it be determined that he does suffer from emotional disorders those of course DO mitigate the matter. Finally, his behavior as your hate is not justified.
Ytown Parent-You're right despite his 2,000.00 rims, gold chain, pockets full of cash and reefer he would be granted an attorney we pay for. His name would have never been introduced to the newspapers decreasing his chance for a fair trial would have had his girl come down, post bond and not need any continuances because he would not have appeared for his court date and a CAPIAS would have been issued and he would be arrested again while driving under suspension. How would he have not had a grand jury/Secret indictment-usually only used on pretty significant drug dealers. Remember there's only 1 John Dellick there's about 10 arrests per day with the description I gave being accurate of most. What do you think is worse for our community?

Other than the "One Comment" you obviously agree with everything else, so you defend someone who is therefore guilty of the aforementioned making you, again, the dick your drunken posts show you to be.

My God-it is unimaginable to me that people have such hate for a person they do not know nor have ever met. I understand his behavior appears (innocent until proven guilty) ugly, but man the ugliness of these posts for a 19 year old kid who is obviously a mess. His life is RUINED hopefully that is enough for everyone's satisfaction. If he was a 19 year old unknown thug from the south-side of Youngstown he'd have never gotten charged like this. He is being punished, not helped, because of who he is.

He KDubs I' ve shut you down before and left you apologizing so here I go. 1. The Vindicator is unfortunately the only print piece in Youngstown related to local news so here's the logic while do not like paying for my water, if I want to drink, I have very few options-get it? 2. My utter hate of deSouza lies in multiple areas-Completely un-objective-has selected a group of public officials he personally despises who never leaked him confidential information and bashes them without ever having the journalistic integrity to present the other side. His column has been a political advertisement for the likes of Tablack, Traficanti, Gains, Wellington and anyone who opposes his enemies. Why has the disgusting cost of Oakhill or the political intentions of its supporters been discussed by a man who claims to be concerned about the area's high cost of government? 3.He is classless. Despite several of the people who have exercised poor judgment and paid for it dearly, he continually uses them and bashes them for fodder as opposed to working and providing new information. Even people who have died in ruin-To me that's a pig-maybe your Mom said that was okay-mine didn't. 4. He is a hypocrite-Bert deSouza writes continually about a recent DUI story-ask Bert if he has any personal familiarity with that mistake or if he got full punishment for such a charge. Finally he's a lousy writer, just simply not good at it-These are my opinions-they are founded in fact-and they are indisputable.
