DISCUSSION: HAGAN BULLYING HIMSELF RIGHT OUT OF THE STARK COUNTY COMMISSIONER RACE
Yesterday Paul Koystu The Repository's Columbus Bureau Chief reported what yours truly (before the days of the STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT) has been saying about John Hagan for years.
Hagan is the Republican candidate for the seat being vacated by Jane Vignos. His opponent is Democrat Peter Ferguson. The election is this November.
In my days of writing comments in the Comment section of The Rep, I repeatedly observed how this guy was not representing the interests of the 50th House District and Stark County, but was a consummate "suck up" to House Speaker Jon Husted.
In the work up to putting together an energy bill Husted and his accolyte Hagan were fronting for First Energy and other big business and in the process attempted to have you and I pay much higher small business and residential electricity bills. Governor Ted Strickland stepped in with the threat of a veto to prevent Husted and Hagan from pummeling the people.
Why, I ask, would a representative for a largely rural district be so hooked into the interests of big business?
