July 7, 2013

DEAR EDITOR: Zero. Not a good score on your kid’s algebra test. And if someone refers to you as a “real zero,” they don’t hold you in very high regard....

They may have pledged the money, but I bet they don't have it now.

I am sure all the upstanding citizens will take the matter into their own hands and strip those homes of at least the copper and I am always reading about those houses going up in flames. Let the Fire Dept. light them up and use it for training. They can only wash a truck so many times a day.

Keep re-electing Mayor Franklin and his lazy administration to keep Warren going in the WRONG direction. They receive a million dollars and can't figure out how to spend it in a timely manner to improve this once great city. My only hope is someone like Jim Graham runs against him next election for hope and change, other wise nothing changes, and the city continues it's downhill free fall.

The residents of the areas where houses don't get torn down should file a lawsuit against the city. Their property values and standard of living have suffered due to the city's complete ineptitude.

The only thing not zero is job appointments by this administration. Look at the water dept. Steinbeck and DiVieste given jobs they were not qualified for. Citizens must wake up and DEMAND more from our city officials instead of just taking care of friends. Oh yeah look at how many SFERRAS are on water dept. payroll for hundred of thousands of thousands per year,these are only things that are not ZERO

All that money is too tempting to pass up! I bet the deadline comes, no houses get demo'd and the money disappears...

If the cost of a demolition is substantially more than, say, what Youngstown pays per demo, the people who live in these neighborhoods better speak up and ask why dozens of homes are still standing because someone in the city was pathologically incapable of doing his job.
