Simply put, lorain hates to spend money on roads.
Lorain refuses to tear down filthy old factories and take out us steel.
Lorain needs better teachers not new buildings.
Lorain is letting the water front go to waste.
Lorain need casinos.
Lorain is letting a young person who has never had a real job hold office.

Born and raised in Lorain and I can agree with most of those (minus the comment I'm guessing about the Mayor).

There is nothing to do in Lorain. I drove through there the other day with a friend who had never been there. I was embarrassed. The roads are beyond deplorable. The old, vacant buildings are an eyesore. The city needs to find grants to tear these down. New businesses are going to come into an area that appears so blighted. I must say downtown looks really nice and the river area is much improved, but the rest of the town is crappy. I have no desire to move back there at all. Out of my closest friends from high school, NONE of us live any closer than 45 minutes away. We all left and none plan to move back.

I can't believe they would spend so much money to redo broadway. When the condition of Kolbe road is just TERRIBLE. I see Amherst is going to resurface their part of Kolbe rd. Lorain should do the same.

They spend who knows how much money on broadway. Yet there are potholes all over the city that need filled.

Everyone is different. Everyone's definition of "real job" is different.

I lived in Cleveland for 25 years. 5 years ago we moved to Lorain. Let me tell you' you can gripe all you want, but Lorain with all it's
faults is still a walk in the park compared to Cleveland.

The reason why lorain sucks is because of no jobs. No jobs, no tax revenue. Almost every job i have had was out of lorain and expect us to pay city taxes for what? So they can slap a coat of paint on Broadway! We really don't even have a highschool. The roads are awful, the jails are over crowded, assault,murder,drug,and human trafficking crimes are all you read about in the papers. This is just a guess but there seems to be more families on public assistance than working families. What used to ne a boom town is now a cesspool of crap. The further from the lake you go, the crappier the town gets. By the time you get to the south side, the more you wish you never came.
