Recalling the fuss that a Beacon Journal columnist made over the costs of President Obama'a campaign stop in the Akron area that fell into the laps of local taxpayers, it only seems fair to refer to an article in the Canton Repository that told of a similar free ride by Mitt Romney for his rally at Hoover High school on Oct. 26.
The paper reported that local requests by Canton and Stark County for reimbursement of $l4,500 have been rejected by Team Romney. An additional $600 bill for Paul Ryan's visit to North Canton wasn't paid. Mayor David Held said he s was "disappointed".
Probably not as much as all of the Republicans in Stark County who voted for Mitt , a Red County that supported him in a losing cause.
