If It Were Up to North Canton, Mitt Romney Would be President

Each precinct in town voted Republican — all 13 of them

Barack Obama won the national vote and he won in Ohio.

But, if North Canton alone decided the next president of the United States, Mitt Romney would be the winner.

According to unofficial results from the Stark County Board of Elections, 1,266 more North Canton voters picked Romney over President Barack Obama.

In North Canton, 3,979 voted for Obama and 5,245 voted for Romney.

In fact, Romney came out ahead in every single precinct in North Canton. 

Also, more North Canton residents gave money to the Obama Campaign than to the Romney Campaign this year, but Romeny supporters gave more in general, according to campaign contribution reports.

So, North Canton is a Republican town that loves to vote up their property taxes when ever they get the chance. Strange breed of voter.

Yes North Canton citizens just love to pass these levies. I heard that the North Canton School administrator said that they will need a levy sooner than later and it going to be sooner than later. And this Stark Parks levy is nothing but a waste of taxpayers money. Heard that it was for more park rangers and a raise for their employees. It is never ending and soon my property taxes will be more than my house payment. What a shame!!!

Right on Ann Marie. The park levy was not needed but if people will give you the $ what the heck. My source also said that the extra $ will end up on more icing for county employees while the general public (that has seen their earning take a huge hit and not come back) continue to bleed. I am getting to hate elections because I will be poorer the day after. My taxes are more than the gas, electric water and sewer bills combined. We will never own our homes. We will just rent them from the county auditor.
