Facts over misinformation.The pro-charter amendment folks thought the voters of Youngstown weren't smart enough to see through their misinformation.For a second time I congratulate the voters of Youngstown.

They are changing their tone because they have always been irrelevant to the discussion.

Typical liberal nonsense expressed by 76.No ome has ever said everyone in Youngstown will get rich. But I am sure that those that are struggling could use $500 - $600 dollars. Of course to snobs such as yourself that have plenty of money $500 is just a night out drinking.But to those in need that five hundred dollars could mean paying the heating bill this winter or food for the kids.You and your elitist friends would deny this help to those in need.I for one want those in need to get that help.Look at this elitist - 76 wants to deny you the benefits of your property and deny you your pleasures.Defeat the elitist snobs register to vote and vote NO on Nov 5th.Protect your rights from elitist snobs like 76.

The charter amendment is a lie.The supporters will tell you it will protect your drinking water, a lie. They say it will protect the air, a lie. Finally they say it protects the democratic process, the biggest lie.You could drill hundreds of wells in the city and the water would not be affected. City water comes from Meander Reservoir and this amendment has no effect in the townships around the reservoir.Study after study has shown no effect to air quality from shale development.The true democratic process is to work through our elected officials. This amendment ignores them and the true democratic process of representative government. The amendment also claims to supercede our federal and state Constitutions. You can't get more un-democratic than that.Vote against the lies Nov 5th, vote no on the charter amendment.

The charter amendment will go down to defeat again in November.The supporters used false information to gain petition signatures and use the same mis- information to promote it.The voters saw through the lies in May and will vote against the amendment again in November.Hopefully no will mean no in November.

Ytown20,You make my point perfectly. You just spew uneducated misinformation.
timOthy,If they do give 100 - 200 make sure the rest of the ROW agreement has terms that protect your property. Otherwise it isn't worth any amount of money.

Water is not finite.For every molecule of natural gas burned two molecules of water are created. Burn more natural gas create more water.
A horizontal well will create twice as much water as the water used for the frac job.
76, you are amazing. You continue to spew your misinformation even though the facts stare you in the face.
This is why the charter amendment will lose again. The facts are against you.

All this talk about protests etc.Take responsibility for yourselves and get informed.Eminent Domain actions with regard to pipelines is rare. All you have to do is ask for the copies of the documents from the FEC that allows eminent domain.If a contractor came to your door and said they had the right to put a road through your property would you just say ok?No! You would ask for proof.Just because you don't understand oil and gas leases and right of ways doesn't relieve you of personal responsibility, get informed.
