DISCUSSION: ANOTHER ARROGANT ACTION, WHO ELSE? WILLIAM J. HEALY, MAYOR OF CANTON - THAT'S WHO
There once was a day that yours truly would get random telephone calls from William J. Healy, II. But no more.
Because if anyone has the audacity to disagree with the Mayor of Canton then that person is taken off the "telephone list" and put on the "_ _ _ _ list."
Well, the STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report/SCPR) is pleased to be on Healy's "_ _ _ _ list." The Repository is on Healy's telephone list. He calls them and asks to come in to talk with the editors so that he can finesse them into writing PR pieces for him. And, they comply. Stark County's ONLY countywide newspaper provides its readers with jaundiced editorials on Healy.
Now a story surfaces where Healy is freezing out someone other than The Report for criticizing him. Namely: Canton City Councilman Greg Hawk who according to a Repository report yesterday that Hawk had disagreed Healy on the budgeting process. Such is Healy tactic #1, if you don't work for him. If you work for him, you get fired!
