HEALY: THE "AGENT OF CHANGE" AGAINST THE "ENTRENCHED INTERESTS?"
A prominent theme of Canton Mayor William J. Healy, II this morning on the "Points to Ponder" radio show (WHBC 1480 AM) what that his difficulties stem from the fact he is a "changer" going up against "the way things have always been" in Canton.
Healy cited Albert Einstein's definition of insanity (although he did not attribute the saying to Einstein; one has to wonder why not?) "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" as being an apt description of those opposing him in his administration of Canton city government.
Healy never said specifically identified these "insane" people but by implication of the context of his overall "co-hosting" comments, the STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) inferred the following: Canton City Council, the Canton Law Department, Tom Bernabei and to whet readers' imagination; the biggest bug-a-boo of all, Canton's "Good Ol Boys" network.
Is there something to the Healy take or is he being an example of an embattled mayor who has slipped into conspiratorial thinking?
