Bob Dean has done much for community

April 14, 2013

DEAR EDITOR: I take umbrage on your editorial (April 9) about what choice to make for Warren City Council president, Robert Dean, whom I grew up with, and Jim Graham....

It's too bad the quality of candidates running for office in this area is so poor. It's to the point that you have to pick one who has the least dirt

Oldgranddad they don't deserve that money that money was meant for their burials that is IT. IF friends wanted certain families to have a certain amount then guess what they should have gave it to them personally. I am so sick of the entitled attitude.

Bob Dean was 100% correct when he said the families were not getting that money. Those families should be greatful he did anything for them. They would have been S.O.L. if Bob Dean did not set up that fund. I AM SO SICK OF THE ENTITLED MENTALITY THAT SOME PEOPLE HAVE. That money went to their burials people who donated money worked for what they donated. They did not donate that money so they could buy a new car or TV.

I see that on April 20th, Bob Dean was given an "onion" for a negative comment he made to a news outlet. He and the eight(8?) member pastoral board were being criticized for not giving the rest of the money to the families (they rightly chose to save the rest for the next tragedy), once the funerals were paid. Did the Tribune give an "Orchid" to Mr. Dean for initially setting up the fund and to the community for covering the funeral costs?

Look's like Bob Dean showed us where the money didn't go. To the drug infested thug families.

WarrenP, why on earth should ANY of the families receive a dime that was collected, that money was donated for FUNERAL EXPENSES ONLY. These families should all be grateful that money was donated so their children could have a proper burial, from what I understand only one family had the insurance to bury their own, so any extra money should be retained for any possible future tragedy, NOT to further enrich the families in question.

Bob Dean needs to show where the $61,000 went that he collected for the teens killed in the SUV accident funeral expenses. I understand the families have not received the funds and where they have gone is unaccounted for. So Bob - how about showing us where they have gone?

Many of these other communities the same. If you want change, be a part of it and quit your constant crying like little middle school girls. IT'S YOUR CITY. IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, DO SOMETHING BESIDES BLAME OTHERS.

Dang all the negativity about Bobby. Bobby isn't the street cleaner, can't fix roads with money the city doesn't have and all the haters that complain of paying the nearly nothing taxes that Warren properties are charged. I guess so many of you could do more with the nothing Mr. Dean has to work with. I don't live in Warren, thank God, but also know that there is a reality to trying to run a city on no money. I'm sure Mr. Dean does more than any of the complainers here do. I wonder when was the last time one of you took your mower and cut an empty lot, when was the last time one you helped clean one of the city playgrounds (parks) on your own time with your own money and equipment. If you want to see change, be a part of it. When you compare your sh!thole to Cortland, Howland, Champion, etc... remember these people volunteer for the lot of the NICE things they have. Howland Park was created mostly by contributions and volunteers,

Dean, you ought to be ashamed of the filthy streets in downtown Warren! Gravel, paper, cigarette butts on ever curb! Why not use prisoners or people who collect welfare filing them brooms and have them clean up this filth? It's a shame and it falls in your lap Franklin! Get busy and clean up the city! You just might get more people to go down town! Get it done! Go For It! Dean!

I believe the endorsement said that Mr. Dean did not seek the newspaper's endorsement. Wonder why?

I am not a friend of Bob's but I have spoken to him several times. The man cares about Warren and he cares about people. He steps up when others do nothing.

Just drive around Warren and you can see what Bob Dean has not done for Warren. How many times a year do you take your car into the shop for a wheel alignment? Too many and the roads are getting worse with Bob Dean on the job. Let's talk about the empty and boarded up abandoned houses in our blighted neighborhoods,.......and it goes on and on. The Trib is right we need new politicians in Warren because those we got are not doing their job.
