Name: Daniel "Jeff" Peters
Occupation: Territory sales manager
Education: , the University of Akron
Political Affiliation: Republican
Office Sought: North Canton Council (Ward 2)
Office Held: Council at Large, 2003-2005; Councilman Ward 2, 2009-present
Candidate Statement: I look forward to serving the residents of North Canton, and in particular, the people in the second ward.
As chairman of the Personnel and Safety Committee, I will continue to work to seek savings for the taxpayers, in regard to salaries and benefits. We need to continue to be fiscally conservative, and with the impending cuts in funding to local municipalities, this is very important to me.
I will also continue to work to bring jobs to North Canton and ensure revenue generated through income tax be used to address our aging infrastructure.
I take great pride in being active for and accessible to my neighbors of the second ward, and if you have any concerns you wish to discuss with me personally, please feel free to reach out to me 330-806-0695. Take care and God bless!
