Cuyahoga Falls Councilman Enters Mayoral Race Against Robart

Things could get interesting in local politics this September.

Cuyahoga Falls Mayor Don Robart offers city councilman Don Walters, Ward 6, a handshke after swearing him in as council president in January.

It appears Cuyahoga Falls Mayor Don Robart has a challenger in the 2013 November General election, according to the Falls News-Press. 

information released Wednesday by the Summit County Board of Elections indicates Cuyahoga Falls City Council President Don Walters, Ward 6, is running on the Democratic ticket. 

Since no other candidates filed for the Sept. 10 primary, there will be no primary in the mayor’s race.

A Republican primary election for Ward 1 Council could be held between Anthony George Karam Jr. and Lynne Weihe. The victor would face Democratic incumbent Vince Rubino for the council seat.

There will be a pair of primaries for the Ward 3 seat. Republican incumbent Vic Pallotta Jr., recently picked by the Summit County Republican Central Committee for Ward 3, will likely face Arden Barnhart in September. 

Ward 3 Democratic primary candidates are Michael Michelli and Mike Penta.

Yellow Freight Dock workers have a LOT of management experience. Isn't that what Mayors are supposed to be - managers? Isn't he the guy that once said that he checks the party of his constituent before he helps them? If they are Republican, he sends them to a Republican Council at Large person and ignores their problem.

Define management skills.

To: The candidates for Mayor, What is one indicator that you will use during your tenure to measure your performance?

Presidents are limited to 2 terms and so should Governors,Mayors and other politicians. New blood is always a welcome change most of the time

To: The Nostic Sag, Why are you unwilling to use your real name? Based on your writing, we can see that you attend many City Council Meetings. That fact tells us that you can only be one of a few people. And, you are highly likely to be male. Your writing tells us that you care about our community. At the same time, your attacks on the people in our community will cost your Republican Party votes. Meanwhile, many others of us in these local public forums hope that the quality of our comments will be read by highly qualified professional people who will be attracted to our community. Professionals ask a lot of questions. And, they expect answers. Professionals respect the process of problem solving. Please consider what you write very carefully. The Internet has a perfect memory.

To: Lou Schott: Please if you are going to slam someone, at least get their name right!! It is Gnostic Sage!! Please use the brain God gave you but then you seem to not be able to use what you have read!!

We need new blood in as a mayor here in the Falls. Robart has run this city into the ground and has tried to take credit for all the good that Quirk did when he was around. Remember when we had all the beautiful flowers all over? Now we have weed beds!! This used to be rated as a great city with fine schools. Now we are dragging our butts in the dirt because of Robart!!

We, the residents of Cuyahoga Falls, are sick and tired of the SAME people in charge!

So you judge a mayor based on city landscaping? You also take offense to people spelling another posters screen name incorrectly? Hope you're a non-voter! You base your opinions on senseless items.

Time for a new mayor!
