DISCUSSION: IS THIS HEADLINE WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE?
Appearing on Time Warner's In the Spotlight recently, Canton Mayor William J. Healy, II made a startling statement: Healy, said he was supporting both congressional seat opponents (16th district) - Boccieri and Schuring.
But - for different positions.
Boccieri for Congress; Schuring to remain in the Ohio Senate.
Healy pointed out that it is almost certain that Boccieri will be part of a Democratic-majority House of Representatives where he will be given (in Healy estimate) priority to get things done for the 16th Congressional district to aid him in getting re-elected in 2010.
On the other hand, tongue-in-cheek, Healy observed how, as a part of a Republican majority, Schuring would be most useful for Stark County and Canton by his remaining in the Ohio Senate.
Question: Is Healy making sense in supporting both Boccieri and Healy?
