Instead of drinking the Betras Kool-Aid maybe we should consider that Judge Evans knows about the investigation into Betras, the Democratic Party and the Board of Elections and that's why he decided to take these unusual steps to retire, the "citizens" weren't going to get a vote anyway.

Discovery Channel called the Mahoning Valley Film Commission when they needed help.
You can find them at www.mv-fc.org if you need help with a project.

Yes Dave you are going to jail, you have fixed multiple elections so "Team Betras" candidates win, you will never be the state party chair, you buy the women surrounding you, the legal community hates you, Republicans laugh at you, and if you are the champion of our Valley we are done and finished.
You could have been a real reformer but instead became just another corrupt lawyer who will have plenty of time to think about all of this while you sit in jail.

Mistake - there is a clear need to start over. Behind closed doors says it all.

The word is Oz helped the producers of this show before they even arrived in Youngstown. The Film Commission should never have been shut down, shame on the lame commissioners.

Tim Ryan is not the answer, and Sarah Lown is certainly not the answer, nor is the Chamber. Politicians, political hacks and people with their hands out need to stay out of the process of creating a new port authority.
The commissioners from both counties need to put together a blue ribbon panel of business CEO's and owners, people that actually know how a business works, and let their only job be to find a new director.
When that task is completed they (the business owners) should be appointed to the new board if they want to continue to serve the community.
We need the port authority to function and attract business here, we have the infrastructure to do anything and we should exploit that.

Local party, local rules. I hope Polivka doesn't cave like Betras did!

Sarah is another political hack and got her job because of her friendship with Bob Hagan. There's not a single "professional" on that board or staff. FIRE THEM ALL!
Time for a "new" port authority.

Both counties need to cut off their funds!
The last time I saw John Moliterno he was drunk and started a fist fight with some guy over a woman.
Is this really the best we can do?
Fire everyone and start over again!!!!

Brilliant thinking again David!
Most likely voters will reject the tax due to many of their elected officials getting indicted and going to jail by the time the election happens.
As far as the Ditz, your friends at the Board of Elections helped him win a race with their help, he's really a 3 time loser running for county office. The Ditz will be out will all the rest of them.
What exactly did you expect from the "Democrats for Change" they never looked up what the word change actually means.
Have another piece of candy David.
