Why does it take the Boardman News to uncover another fleesing of Mahoning County.
The commisioners, who fired the old Convention Bureau (but let them take $400,000 in cash with them) decided that they know more about how to fill up motels than motel owners and felt that giving $65,000 to Richard Ouzounian for his self-proclaimed "Western Reserve Film Commission."
The commisioners granted the $65,000 without knowing who is on the commission other than OZ without a even a budget request. The agreement of course was intentionally written to have little accountablity for the spending of the money.
What did this bag of wind, OZ, do with money (SURPRISE) in 5 months
Paid himseld $40,000
Office supplies for his own office $15,000 where only him and his wife work
Who signs the checks? His wife of course.
Who does he use to subcontract work for marketing? MediaTech, the next office where he and his family are the only workers and owners.
Guess who is MediaTech's big client? Chevrolet Center!!!!
And officials wonder why the people in this town are sick of their leadership and the Vindicator. Where is the Vindicator on this fleecing?
PS. Although this guy takes credit for the bringing in Home MakeOver, he in fact was thrown off the set many times which he cried to his buds the commissioners about but of course later denied.
MAKE OZ GIVE BACK THE MONEY AND RUN HIM OUT OF TOWN.
HERE IT IS WILLIAMS. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT SOMEONE LIKE THIS WORKING AT THE CHEVY CENTER. GIVE HIM MORE MONEY LIKE THE COMMISSIONERS? (They paln to give him $150,000 more!!!) Jay, please don't let us down, here is an opprotunity. Do something. Somebody show some leadership
