Why can’t Mahoning roads be kept up?


I recently drove from Salamanca, N.Y., to my home in Boardman. What a pleasure to drive on smooth, beautiful roads with medians and roadsides maintained.

It was this way in northern Pennsylvania and driving south on state Route 11.

Then came the Mahoning County line — rough roads, overgrown weeds in the median and on the roadside. Why?

Market Street (a major artery to downtown Youngstown) looks like a war zone. Why?

There are some streets in Boardman that look like third world countries. Why?

No politician will give me a good answer.
