It is disgraceful that no one else wants to run for Mayor - however, who wants to buck the Democratic machine to do so? SMH

The more things change the more they stay the same. Outside of Mr. Beachum, who has served the district well and has earned his retirement, there is not one single person who is qualified to oversee a district that is in such terrible educational and financial shape. Of course there must be parent involvement for the students to thrive academically - that is why it is on of the components evaluated for each teacher. I noticed that none of the candidates have a plan to address that - or if they do - it was not shared or published. God help the City of Youngstown - the school district continues to deteriorate.

McNally was never "proven" innocent - the charges were dropped due to lack of cooperation by the FBI.

That section of township road is narrow and can be treacherous. Thank God no one was hurt.

As the story comes out, I have a feeling she is an abused woman - possibly abused by both her husband and son.

I'm pretty sure when the details come out we will find out that this woman has been living a nightmare.

I'm not voting for any of the mayoral candidates.

Unfortunately it is probably going to take someone getting killed to really get a stepped up police presence. This situation certainly will not help YSU's enrollment issues.

This is getting ridiculous. Why should any part of the city be held hostage by thugs? Are the YPD and YSU Police waiting for someone to be killed before they take this seriously? I hope not!

Early retirement is expensive to the institution because it has to pay for the years being granted for early retirement. I know this is tough in a heavily Democratic town but we cannot blame Kasich. All institutions need to live within a budget - and the state does not have the luxury afforded to the federal government of going year to year without a balanced budget. There is no new money - just reallocated money.
