April 9, 2008 could go down in the annals of Stark County history as the most significant date in modern times.
Because on April 9th, a collection of northeast Ohio mayors, trustees, councilpersons, and county commissioners together with key unelected officials and business planners voted to proceed to Phase II of the Regional Economic Revenue Study (RERS).
RERS is dedicated to “planning and sharing for regional growth.”
Stark County’s own Canton Mayor William Healy, II is an integral part of this study. Healy has picked up where his predecessor Janet Creighton left off. As the study moves on, other Stark Countians (commissioners, councilpersons, trustees, other mayors, et cetera) will be joining the group according to an email exchange between RERS spokesman Kerry Smith and the STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report).
The Report believes that the mayor of Canton should be the lead-person in economic development for Stark County because as Canton goes so goes the rest of Stark County.
Over the ensuring months The Report will be following developments with RERS and reporting at least weekly on aspects of the effort including any new developments.

After reading the study, shouldn’t Stark Countians at every turn be asking Mayor Healy for updates on RERS?
By doing so, you can participate in revitalizing Stark County.
