Very strange USB accused blacks of being mindless bots who fall in to support candidates based on their race... Well Bob Dean is black, Jim Graham is white and I'm voting for Graham, explain that USB!

The reasons are many why Jim Graham is NOT the right person for the job of President of Council.

1. He has ZERO political experience. 2. He has ZERO business experience. 3. He has ZERO experience enticing business to want to be in Warren. Quite the contrary! 4. He has ZERO image to attract REAL business leaders to help Warren. 6. He displayed ZERO respect for the Delphi retirees (fellow citizens of Warren) when he himself vowed to assist them in their plight, then the hypocrite did NOTHING.

Say NO to Graham in May! His image is NOT what Warren needs!

It is pretty easy to figure out why itisnteasybeingfree is supporting Mr. Dean. Bob Dean has a record to run on. itisnteasybeingfree has a record too.

Crap - Dean spoke out against the drug culture. Shame on YOU for calling it a race issue. Residents of Warren, WHITE AND BLACK, are sick of the drugs and the culture that it breeds. And it is time for families, white & black, to raise their children to have values. Your using the race card is a continued EXCUSE for not taking RESPONSIBILITY.

Looks like Bob Dean supporters are also responsible for having pro-Graham comments deleted. Guess they're afraid if an opposing view is heard the truth will begin to resonate with citizens who believe we need new faces to replace the career Politicians who have guided Warren to ruins!

!!REMOVED FROM SITE!! I'd rather give the job to someone who is not part of the disaster that has become Warren. We've already experienced what Bob Deans leadership will provide citizens. Furthermore he has such little respect for black folks to believe we're all interested with "big rims & dope". After that, no self respecting black person should ever vote for Dean! It's simply time to send all these career politicians home so that new people can come in and be given the opportunity that these career politicians have squandered...

That's what makes him the best candidate, he's not part of the status quo or the disaster that has become Warren Ohio...

And then there's the other trustworthy thug who messed up public trust on school board!

The only thing he will be running for is the gates when the flames and pitchforks are chasing after him in the near future!

Jim Graham certainly has my vote. His years with the UAW has provided him with plenty of trustworthy experience.

Trustworthy experience? Lol! Are people really that stupid???

I'm sure "DelphiRetiree" is just a random informed citizen who retired from Delphi and just happens to reeeeeallly thing Bob Dean should be the council president and reeeeeally think Jim Graham shouldn't. Well, either that or a Trib handle is an inexpensive auxiliary campaign tool. Who do you think you're fooling?

Hey, Pure Country, check out the description of Council President job. Run meetings, communicate between committees, and act to organize. Same as UAW pres. I would say the skill set transfers well. Check out Doby Doobie's job description in Cleveland....he ran a parking lot for the Port Authority. He fought hard to bring that worthless Rose Ann Deleon from Cleve to run Port Authority here. She was the highest paid person in Trum or Mah county govt with NOTHING to show for it. Do it again Doobie!

DelphiRetiree, I could not of said it any better. Being President of the local UAW, is just a goodwill position with the surrounding communities. They have no say in the contract talks or negotiations, so their experience in making things happen is zero. Being a UAW retiree and being involved in the political arena, I know what I'm talking about. Most of the time its not based on what you know, its based on popularity. Which is a far cry from leadership skills. Graham likes to have people believe that he done so much, keeping the auto industry here in the valley. When in fact it was the elected bargaining officers and the membership that was responsible. The president over sees the daily operations of the executive committees and running the local union office. So don't be fooled by the title of local President of the UAW.
