Original post, Sept. 18:
Only five Cuyahoga Falls residents gave more than $1,000 to presidential candidates in this election cycle—and four of those residents gave their money to Mitt Romney.
Of the 110 donations given so far, 83 went to President Barack Obama's campaign and 27 went to Romney's.
However, Romney's donations totaled $12,750, while Obama's only added up tp $8,819.
Here's the Romney donations that made a difference:
- Mark Grdina, Vice President of the Great Lakes Construction Co., $2,500
