WarrenProud you are exactly right- Please tell me what the current mayor has done for this city? Please someone run against Franklin the next election. Warren can't take another 4 years of this administration

I dare say that many, many of the complaints of totally ill-run, run amuck, arrogant and open disregard for the needs and rights of citizens very much revolves around the completely entrenched 1-party system that impedes a healthy opposing viewpoint of issues that matter most to the citizens.

Of course, why do we read and hear about these seemingly attroceous actions by the entrenched party, but we don't hear anything from the opposing seemingly inept party?

This other party, maybe because of the fear of being even more marginalized, seems to act like they have no will, or no fight left at the least, too attempt their duty in protecting the citizens of this area.

It's time the republican party wakes up, takes issue with these concerns and indicate to the citizens what they feel needs to be done to help the citizens.

Almost anyone will tell you that in Trumbull County . . . overall, elections are almost always won or lost in "committees".... long before the citizens get to vote.

Now we can talk about how truly impedant(sp), the republican party has become.

Our last county engineer that hasn't been followed by "real", issues was republican Ed Ryser. This only means that a republican can be as good or as bad as a democrat.

The party of choice for this part of the state is democrat, and that's good, cause that's what the citizens want.

BUT, what's not good is when the party becomes complacent and absolutely entrenched in their elected positions and everything winds up being done with a wink & nod between virtually EVERYONE who in the same political spectrum.

The two party system would be one of the better defenses to what has become the wink & nod syndrome.

The apathetic turn out on election day is because the majority of people in this city, the ones that move in and the ones that stayed over the past twenty years, are transient-type trash who simply don't give a ****.

The ignorant trash masses are teeming into this city have done nothing but drag it down further. What the closing steel mills and fleeing industry did not do to crush this city, bad landlords, cheap rent and worse and cheaper tenants have finished.

And there are way too little of the civic minded folks left who care. This is why you only see the same fifteen people at any political or community minded meetings.

Yes, Warren needs new leadership and Doug Franklin has shown he is not it!
