YOUNGSTOWN — In Ohio's most recent $2.6-billion capital budget, nearly $6 million was slotted for community projects in the Mahoning Valley.
The City Club of the Mahoning Valley invited Mahoning Matters reporter Justin Dennis to moderate the club's "Views and Brews" public forum Monday at Suzie's Dogs and Drafts in downtown Youngstown.
The forum's four panelists -- State Sen. Sean O'Brien of Bazetta, D-32nd; Nick Santucci, director of government and public affairs for the Youngstown-Warren Regional Chamber; Matt Bowen, superintendent of Campbell City Schools; and Wendy Patton, senior project manager of Policy Matters Ohio's State Fiscal Project -- discussed how the state's biennial capital budget is created and how those state dollars impact local communities.
The City Club broadcast the forum on Facebook Live. You can watch the full feed below:
