PRESS RELEASE: Summit County Executive Ilene Shapiro Delivers State of the County Address and Announces New Initiatives
On October 25, 2017, Summit County Executive Ilene Shapiro delivered her State of the County Address to a crowd of more than 700 people at the John S. Knight Center. Focusing on the topics of public safety, the opiate crisis, and jobs, Executive Shapiro introduced bold new initiatives and projects.
Annually, the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) trustees spend days upon days fundraising, but the most important responsibility the trustees have is evaluating the many candidates in Cuyahoga and Summit Counties to determine whether or not they (the candidates) are REALTOR® Party champions worthy of RPAC support. Recently, the trustees of ACAR’s RPAC met over the course of 3 days to review a plethora of General Election campaigns in both Summit County and Cuyahoga County.
Voters in the November 7th General Election will elect municipal candidates for mayor, city council and judicial seats. There will also be ballot issues for voters in Cuyahoga and Summit counties, including state, county, school and library issues.
