Metz,Youngstown is the poorest city in OH, and one of the poorest in the nation. 49.7% poverty rate, 20% unemployment. Poverty and unemployment affect the African American community more than any other demographic group in Youngstown. Most of the supporters of the charter amendment are white suburbanites. They are elitist snobs, and in my opinion racists. They believe they know better about leasing property in Youngstown than the African Americans that live there and own the land. This ill conceived charter amendment takes away the property rights of the African American community in Youngstown. All to promote the radical environmental agenda of the elitist white leftists.
