  Rusu, Meacham, Robb Clearly The Best Candidates  
  October 23, 2014 Edition  
     On Tues., Nov. 4, voters will cast their ballots in the general elections.
      In this election, three races draw particular interest---those for the Mahoning County Probate Court, Mahoning County Auditor and Seventh District Court of Appeals.
      Seeking to retain the seat he was appointed to by Gov. John Kasich is Judge Robert Rusu. He is opposed by Democrat Susan Maruca, former law office partner with County Dem Chair Dave Betras, who last week found a suspected pipe bomb outside a window of his Canfield law office.

     After winning four national titles as head coach of the Youngstown State Penguins, current YSU President Jim Tressel left the Mahoning Valley for 14 years, winning an NCAA national football championship at The Ohio State University and then serving as a vice-president at Akron University.
      He returned to the Valley earlier this year to become the ninth president in the history of YSU, and last Friday he was the featured speaker at a Good Morning Boardman breakfast held at the Community Center in Boardman Park. About 200 persons attended the event.
      “It is great to be back in the Mahoning Valley,” Tressel observed, noting “What has been done here in the last 14 years is extraordinary.”
