DISCUSSION: TODAY AT CANTON CITY HALL - HEALY TRIES TO FIRE POLICE CHIEF MCKIMM?
The STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) has learned that the beleaguered and besieged Mayor William J. Healy, II of Canton tried to fire Canton Chief of Police Dean L. McKimm today.
Canton Law Director Joseph Martuccio stepped in and stopped the firing.
It appears that Mayor Healy is coming unglued.
The Repository today reported that the mayor issued a directive to city workers not to talk to recently fired service director and chief of staff Tom Bernabei. Why would he need to do that. Probably because Healy put Bernabei in a position in which city workers saw Bernabei functioning as the mayor.
Further evidence that the mayor may not see himself as being in control.
The Report also has an observation of a city hall observer that Safety Director Tom Nesbitt may not last the week.
What news will be coming out of city hall tomorrow?
