Republicans believe corporations are citizens - maybe some of the corporations can form a "citizens group" to focus on education and prevention of heroin addiction.

Jamael "Tito" Brown represented the 3rd Ward not the 2nd. I guess all of Youngstown's wards look the same to some people.

Townships are a level of taxation that is not necessary. Their entire function can be turned over to the County. They are a drain on the economy of the entire state.

Cities are incorporated and stand on their own legally & fiscally. Townships were created when the area was densely forested and the main form of transportation was walking, they depend on others (state & county) for their existence. Townships are a redundant and unnecessary taxing body. A city should never give up services for a project in a township. It makes no sense on any level.

This whole scenario demonstrates the problems we have in the Mahoning Valley. It is urban sprawl no matter how you look at it but it is made worse by the commissioners cow-towing to the developer and the township. Township government is a rip-off. This property should be annexed to the City of Canfield if it is developed. Canfield (city)should hold its ground and see how badly Windsor House, Inc. wants this project.

In many states there is only one school district per county. Maryland, Virginia and Florida are a few of them. Imagine how much they save in superintendent salaries....It would also eliminate the confusion of so many school boards.

There are 29 local governments in the county - no two zoning ordinances are completely alike.
