The STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) recently learned that Ohio House - 50th district candidate Democrat Celeste M. DeHoff (until four years ago a registered Republican) complained to a Massillon City Councilperson because the city of Massillon recently hired Michael D. Stevens "knowing he ran against her in the [Democratic primary] election."

Stevens was recently hired to be the superintendent of the Massillon Street Department.

We all know about "sore losers." But a "sore winner?"

Yep, that's what we have in Celeste DeHoff.

Apparently, DeHoff doesn't understand that when the word gets out on her complaint, voters will wonder whether or not she has the maturity to be state representative.

The Report thinks DeHoff has learned "political comeuppance" well from her political mentor, advisor and model - Johnnie A. Maier, Jr. (chairman of the Stark County Democratic Party).

Readers will recall that The Report described in a previous report a Johnnie A. Maier, Jr. post-election diatribe against the person who had the audacity to run against him in his last successful to remain clerk of courts in Massillon.

Question: If DeHoff were to be elected, what retribution would DeHoff visit on a constituent who publicly embarrasses her in a public exchange? Is this candidate mature enough to be elected as state representative?

Hello, I went to Canton Civic Ctr. yesterday for the Obama rally. I gave my seat up for a lady that did not have one. So throughout Obama's speech I kneeled down in the aisle trying to take pics until a sweet soul offered me her seat so I could take better pics to get off my knees. I am here to tell you after learning who she was and thanking her numerous times- Celeste DeHoff was that person. So bless her heart!
