Columbiana Chevrolet-Buick-Cadillac

This dealership has been the best that I have ever used. There is no pressure to buy. I shop their website found the car I wanted, and then contacted their contact person. I told them where I had to be on price and they worked with me.

I had worked with the following employee’s at Columbiana Chevrolet-Buick-Cadillac. First I worked with Steve Tirabassi the internet rep., he forward me to Mark Williams the Sales Professional and he was that. Then I met the General Manager Nick DiNunzio he was very pleasant to talk to, a down to earth type guy. They were very good on changing over my lift from my old car to the new one Nick no problem.
By the way I got a 2008 Blazer the color per my neighbor Larry SAID; Bing Cherry, the dealer calls it dark Cherry!!!!! THANK YOU Columbiana Chevrolet-Buick-Cadillac

I have set up on the right side of the post Pages, General Info. and What’s happening, just scroll down on the right side and click to get their website.

Seniors Safety

September 11, 2013

Message 9/11/13 from Chief Tisone. Please pass the word and heed the contents.

Make residents aware that a white male was arrested for burglarizing homes by the name of James Larosa. He would ride around the neighborhoods in the areas of Colonial, Mansell, Hadley, Euclid ect. on a bicycle and ask to do yard work. While working at some of the residences, he would go inside the home and remove items. Advise your readers especially the senior citizens not to allow anyone to solicit them for work at their homes. These people prey on the elderly.

Thanks Chief. Please keep us up to date for our safety

2013 General Election

September 9, 2013

2013 General Election
In passing years, the Liberty Business Association partnered with the Liberty Schools Parent & Teacher Association to offer to the public during general election years a Candidates Night. This was a success for many years but became less so do to the news and social media that is available now. We did not offer it one year and we were deluged with complaints and many thought this was an offering that was due them. We explained our position at a Trustee’s Meeting and brought it back for our last election. Unfortunately we had a grand total of 11 people show up. There were more candidates than people. It was embarrassing but we were not the only ones. Cortland had only 7 people show up. The LBA and the LSPTA will no longer offer these forums. Today we have extended voting days, longer absentee voting, early voting and by the time we have the forum, many have already voted. The LBA is exploring other venues and would welcome suggestions as to how we can assist our community to participate in our governing process.
2013 Ballot– There are 2 openings for Trustee and 3 people running for those positions. All three are on the ballot. Jason Rubin, Stan Nudell and Greg Cizmar. There are 3 openings for The Liberty Board of Education. None are on the regular ballot. There are 3 “write In” candidates running for the 3 positions. They are Carmen Faustino, Calvin Jones, and Gloria Lang. There is 1 issue on the ballot for Liberty only. A 1.25 mills additional 5 yr levy to commence in 2013 for the Road Dept.
I, hope to be elected and I look forward to serving on the board with both these gentlemen. Please allow me the privilege of commenting on the candidacy of Carmen Faustino. There have been some comments made that he is too young and inexperienced. First, whatever you think, he had the courage and the desire to better his community and he stepped forward when no one else did. Beyond that, for those of you who have forgotten or who never knew, during the first year of my first election to the BOE, I proposed that we add to our board 2 members of the student body, male and female as honorary members as did many schools such as Warren and Youngstown to give us a new and much needed dimension with regard to the feelings and suggestions of the student body. First, no one on the board believed this was being done by others and after an initial laugh, and it was discovered that this was common practice, it was dismissed. I am delighted to have Carmen in the mix and I look forward to a new outlook, a breath of fresh air and the luxury of having youth represented by someone coming on with no baggage or agenda other than his schools and community. If anything, I wish we had more of him.
