Not that Mr. Villamagna or Ms. Hines need someone to speak on their behalf, I do feel the need to address Ms. Hines' quote in this article. At the meeting she was specifically addressing his decision to publically disclose the phone numbers in question. She applauded the level of dedication and work by the Councilman, but felt that the topic could have been addressed publically without telling the numbers to all in attendance. While you may know who Mr. Villamagna is and not Ms. Hines, many of us at the meeting know Ms. Hines is a strong supporter of the city and volunteers her time to many projects that are aimed at uplifting the city and its residents. So remember, sometimes you only get a part of what someone says and often an article doesn't allude to what SPECIFICALLY they may have been referring to.

Keep up the good work Mr. Villamagna!! As for Ms. Hines, transparency is always the best policy unless there's something to hide. If there's nothing to hide then no one should have an issue with transparency. Why is a city cell phone being used to make or receive calls from the Caribbean to begin with? I assume those cell phones are not for personal use and only for matters pertaining to the city. If Steubenville is having financial problems start making employees pay for all personal calls made on city cell phones.

looks like the "dirty Laundry" will finally be taken to the laundry mat. TY Mr.Vilamagna for wanting answers to questions we have asked . As for Ms. Hines, why do you not want discretion? We just want the truth. Can you not handle the truth?

I respectfully, but vehemently disagree with Ms. Hines. Things have been done behind the scenes for far to long in this city. I want to thank Councilman Villamagna for bringing things to light and I hope he will continue to do so. He specifically said that he made attempts to resolve the issue without going public and he hit a brick wall. When that happens, you have to yell this*****from the mountaintops. Keep up the good work Bob.

I personally want to see everything come out in a Council Meeting! Air out our dirty laundry, so that it will be taken care of, and not swept under the rug, or, be relegated to the back room, where the boys smoke big cigars and eat steak at our expense.

I hope that Bob Vilamagna will keep questioning everything that goes on, and, keep doing his job that he was hired for, to be a thron in everyones side, and find the answers that no one wants to hear the questions for.

Shame, every Council man or woman wont take it upon themselves to do this very same thing, but, the 'good ol boys' routine is always a factor.

Its a good thing that a lot of the Council People meet at a local resturant to hash out what they are going to say in Council Meetings, so they wont get caught with thier pants down LOL... Maybe they should invite Mr. Villamagna to join them, so he wont be an embarrassment to them all ROTFLOL :) I wish you all well...
