The STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) could not believe it when a flier arrived which contained this slam (see the accompanying graphic) on Republican commissioner candidate John P. Hagan of Marlboro Township.
John Hagan is Stark County's most marginal public official.
He is easy to ignore in terms of his not having the gravitas to be in on any serious policy discussion and certainly not policy formulation.
Hagan is a follower trough-and-through. Just ask Ohio House Speaker Jon Husted. Hagan has made a career of finding a Husted and holding on for dear life.
Because he does not have creative, innovative and visionary qualities, he is as Ferguson says is the "Wrong Choice / Wrong Time. Wrong Time? That's all the time.
If Ohio Power (American Electric Power) gets its 52% (62% in the case of industrial manufacturers) increase over the next three years, Stark Countians have to look no further than John P. Hagan. He toadied up to the behemoths of the electric power industry and put the shaft to all Ohioans.
But for you folks who know Dr. Peter Ferguson, isn't this hammering uncharacteristic of the man? Isn't Ferguson piling on a testament to what The Report has been saying about Hagan for years?
