This goes to show everyone how uneducated and unprofessional are the people that Gov. Kasich has put in charge in Columbus. Everyone in the State except this guy knows what is wrong with all inner city schools. It is the parents and community. Nothing to do with the schools. Struthers and Boardman schools are almost identical to the Youngstown schools in terms of what they teach and how educated and experienced the staff is. The difference in the schools is the kids. The difference in the kids is the parents. Stop waisting everyone's time pretending that the schools can perform miracles. Stop blaming the wrong people for political points. The only inner city program that ever worked was the one in New York City that took the kids away from the parents and community and put them in boarding schools. Then they did as well in school as kids in the suburbs.

It is time that people demand that companies stop being allowed to commit crimes that we would go to jail for. If I dumped poisons into the drinking water of thousands of people, I would be tried to attempted murder and go to jail for years. Perhaps the pitch forks of the French revolution were not such a bad thing after all. It did stop the tyranny of the rich.

And the price of our natural gas in our homes went up 50% this year. More local dollars going out of the country to foreign owned gas companies.

You have to be kidding me. They spend millions closing down buildings and then spend a million dollars re-opening it. These guys must be the most incompetent administrators on earth.

Another corporate welfare scam. Every business that goes downtown is there to rob the taxpayers so the rich owners can get richer. Guaranteed this hotel will last until the tax welfare runs out, and then the city will be left with another empty building. If the hotel can not exist on it's own, like all the ones in Boardman and Austintown, then it should not exhist at all.

They are not joining forces to serve the students. They are joining forces to harrass the students. To try to push their personal religious views on those who are not interested in hearing them. They should be isolated to a corner of the campus so they do not become pests.

Best of luck in your retirement.

I hope he does well. In reality, I won't be mentioning I live in Youngstown even when I visit my friends in Columbus. They threw him out as a crook. Now he adds to the reputation of Youngstown being run by crooks. Every since the Dann fiasco, politicians will not touch Youngstown politicians. Now academics will be avoiding YSU. Good bye to better professors. Good bye to better students. Plan on another scandal involving YSU to hit the newspapers in a couple of years.

It's time every severance package for a city employee be published in the paper so we can see where our money is being wasted.

One more humiliation for residents of Youngstown area. An unqualified, crooked person being considered for YSU President. So the mob owns him for all the payments they made to buy his winning teams at YSU. So he will never be an equal to the other college presidents. He fits the Youngstown profile: he will sell out for anything.
