Chris Borello of Concerned Citizens of Lake Township has had a devil of a time getting the ear of Stark County elected officials.

Commissioner Tom Harmon hasn't answered her questions nor has Prosecutor John Ferrero as well as a host of others.

But there seems to be a glimmer of hope.

John Boccieri, who currently only represents the eastern slice of Stark County, on September 12th e-mailed Borello letting her know that he has her concerns in mind.

How about Kirk Schuring who actually represents the geographical area that is the focus of Borello's concern?

Schuring and Boccieri are running against each other for Ralph Regula's seat in the U.S. Congress (16th District). Both are currently members of the Ohio Senate. But both have seemed to be unconcerned about the Industrial Excess Landfill (IEL) "Superfund" site located in Uniontown.

Is that changing?

Boccieri seems to understand that this is a problem that is not going away anytime soon. Does Schuring?

In any event, can Kirk Schuring afford to be perceived as a candidate who selectively engages his constituents?

Kirk Schuring, like Regula, is a running-dog for the Timken crowd. So, Schuring may claim to be representing all citizens, but, in reality, he is representing the Hills & Dales / Brookside / Glenmoor Country Club crowd. The Republican Party IS the Ultra-Rich/Power Elite Plutocrats and Schuring will make sure, if elected to Congress, to push their agenda of sucking ever more money out of the Middle-class (think the price of gasoline.)
