I will automatically and arbitrarily vote NO on ANY AND ALL continuing levies, taxes, etc in Youngstown city and Mahoning county.
And I will encourage others to do the same.

Given that county commissioners just issued a tax abatement for a new hotel and banquet facilities to be built across the street, this place was toast anyhow.

I hope that the unions are prepared for ugly negotiations this summer, since Dunn will be leaving just as the contracts settle. His replacement will try to say it's all in the past and let's be positive and move forward, but the harm will be Dunn.

I am sure that a lame duck president being involved with negotiations will work out well for the employees. Totally sure of it.

I will vote and work against any continuing tax in Youngstown or Mahoning County. Having to come back to taxpayers periodically to ask enforces some accountability - which is clearly lacking.

I will vote against any continuing levy or tax in Mahoning County or the city of Youngstown. Period. Put a date on it and come back to me.

While the numbers speak, except for the president the upper administration hasn't changed. How much of this is to prepare for upcoming negotiations with two bargaining units?

Most likely, the Wick Pollock was remodeled with capital funds, not operating funds (where tuition comes from). Separate budgets, separate sources, and you can't mingle them.
That doesn't mean that there aren't issues. Two union contracts come up next summer.

Hold the full trial and record the evidence and testimonies. Lock him up as long as he's "insane". If he ever becomes sane, then he gets an automatic life sentence.
I'm sure there's some way to do this legally.

I expected Dr Anderson to stay perhaps five-six years, but her sudden departure surprised me.I'm ambivalent about Jim Tressel - I would hope that there are other candidates with at least the same qualifications and less baggage.
