Neither is Bob Dean the proper image for Warren. His record speaks louder than your zero's Delphi. Bob Dean has collected paychecks from our tax dollars while watching & helping Warren deteriorate!

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!

Everyone should be suspicious of a zealot who only has bull crap reasons why Graham shouldn't be elected, but has NO RATIONAL REASON WHY DEAN SHOULD GET ANOTHER CHANCE TO BANKRUPT WARREN!!!

Businesses & homeowners are taking a financial beating with Bob Deans idiotic leadership. Furthermore Delphi he doesn't like whites, how can you support that?

Everyone is sick to death of Delphi stalking every article trying to promote Bob Dean. You can't be a sane or rational citizen exhibiting this extreme troll behavior. Your zeal is borderline psychotic and you're obviously very angry & disturbed to go to such extremes.

If you're not Bob Dean and have nothing to gain with him as Council President you should get back on your meds. Instead of repeating the same tired rant against Graham, explain exactly why Dean is faultless in the disaster Warren has become.

You can't be a business or property owner wanting to elect Dean. I'm both and he is bad for the City!!! You're simply a retired factory worker begging for a handout, home owners & business owners want a new face...

Graham = union goon = more of the same (failures) for Warren... wash, rinse, and repeat the insanity? Things will not change until the voters of Warren have a paradigm shift. The bigger problem is a lack of qualified quality candidates to begin with. Most of the elections around Warren, if contested, are choices between dumb and dumber...

ZERO political experience shouldn't be a disadvantage to the citizens of Warren.

Otherwise, if he can't perform, vote him out.

If the citizens of Warren want to move forward, they need to learn to take over the city government through the power invested in them.

Let politicians know that if a politician does not "own", his/her position. The "citizens", own these positions and the politicians only "occupy", the positions at the whim of the citizens.

Learn to turn the doors into city(and county), government into revolving doors until someone finally decides that the people's interest comes before their own.

Delphiretire says " Graham's leadership at Lordstown amounted to being SMART enough to realize that he had no choice but to accept what GM told him".

YOU should be that smart and realize that what GM told you is correct, YOU don't have a top up agreement.

Daniel those families do not need that money and they have no right to it. Their burials were taken care off and the rest was put in a trust fund. They are lucky dean set up that fund or they would have been S.O.L. I am sick and tired of the you owe me mentality. The people who donated that money for their burials not to buy a new car or tv .

Mr. Graham you need to get Dan Crouse off your campaign trail or you will loose another election again.Step up and be the leader you are and not the follower Mr. Crouse is.Stick with promoting the future of Warren and do not ridicule mistakes from the past.

I agree. But we all see how EVERY ward but one overwhelmingly defeated him in that miserable effort.

Graham wants to be Mayor. He's not running against Dean, he running against Franklin.

Graham's "leadership" at Lordstown amounted to being smart enough to realize that he had NO choice but to accept what GM told him. It was going to be GM's way at Lordstown, or Lordstown would be gone, plain & simple.

Results really tell the tale,Lordstown is one of the most productive car plants in the world going from the most militant plant to one of company labor cooperation.Yes it's called LEADERSHIP! We need that on council instead of making a big deal out of a Xmas gift.Do you agree Featherstone?

Under Jim Graham's tenure as UAW president, the public image of union/mgmt relations went from that of antagonism and aggression to that of cooperation. I would not classify him as a "union thug." I would say he is a person who knows how to cooperate, how to compromise, how to get things done without threatening or bullying.

I've never met him but I have met his son on several occasions. He is one of the nicest, most respectful people I've ever met. I'm guessing that was taught to him from his father.

I think Jim Graham would be a good person for the job.
