DISCUSSION: HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE THE STARK CO STATEHOUSE LEGISLATIVE DELEGATION TO FIGURE OUT HOW MUCH & WHERE THE MONEY GOES IN STARK?

UPDATED: 03/28/2009 AT 8:00 AM. Apparently, Stark's legislative delegation had no say in how much money ou was coming to Stark (which turned out to be 21.5 million, according to a Repository report) and where it would go within the county (just about all to the city of Canton). It would be interesting to know how the governor decided these questions.

For the last couple of days it has been raining in Stark County. It's springtime and that's the way it ought to be.

In coming days Stark should be getting a different kind of rain: green rain. Yes, the governor has gotten his hands on Ohio's share of federal stimulus money and now we will find out if our legislative delegation is going to get Stark County's fair share.

The Report suggests to the delegation that they bring Stark County Democratic Party chairman Johnnie A. Maier, Jr. in as a consultant on this one. After all, he was the first Democratic chairman in all of Ohio to endorse Strickland before it was a sure thing that Strickland was going to be governor.

Don't think the governor has forgotten "good ol' Johnnie," do ya?

In case you have forgotten how close Johnnie and the governor are, here is a video reminder.

What difference does it make how much $$ Stark Co. receives if it ends up in the same deep pockets it historically has? Who is going to shepherd the funds to their final destination to ensure they are spent wisely, ethically, responsibly, and legally? (hint: allowing the Fox to guard the henhouse is NEVER a good idea-unless you are a "in bed with" the Fox).
