A position of leadership does have its rewards but it also carries responsibility. Yes, this does entail more than managing the spending of your salary. The safety of those who you purport to lead is a major priority. Services to achieve that goal must be maintained. Paying for those services does require that jobs be available to generate cash for that purpose.
Generating jobs is an ongoing process that requires constant attention. An atmosphere must be maintained that makes doing business pleasurable. Unhappy businesses leave and go where they are welcome. In todays economy jobs have a very high value. You cannot afford to lose any.
Using available resources to the max should be considered to create new industries. We deal with many countries around the world and those contacts can be used to facilitate trade. Idle hands can be put to use manufacturing goods for export. Lets put an abundance of pride and prosperity back into Youngstown.
