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.
