All North Canton candidates for office were asked to include in their ‘Candidate Statement’ their answer to the question, “How will the city deal with state budget cuts?” There was a reason this same question was posed to each candidate and it would be helpful if each candidate would provide a response to that question. I look forward to hearing your ideas.

Mark is so disengaged in what truly is the backbone of what the city faces, it has caused his committees to review and act without his input.
