The Atlantic Endorses Presidential Candidate for Just 3rd Time in 159 Years – Clinton

The Atlantic Endorses Presidential Candidate for Just 3rd Time in 159 Years – Clinton

Today, our position is similar to the one in which The Atlantic’s editors found themselves in 1964 (when they endorsed Lyndon B. Johnson). We are impressed by many of the qualities of the Democratic Party’s nominee for president, even as we are exasperated by others, but we are mainly concerned with the Republican Party’s nominee, Donald J. Trump, who might be the most ostentatiously unqualified major-party candidate in the 227-year history of the American presidency.

These concerns compel us, for the third time since the magazine’s …

Hillary Clinton makes brief stop in Ashland

Hillary Clinton makes brief stop in Ashland

ASHLAND – Just days after the end of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton made an impromptu stop at Grandpa’s Cheesebarn.

Letter to the Editor: Actions call for rescinding support

Letter to the Editor: Actions call for rescinding support

Editor:

As Chair of the Wayne County Democratic Party, I can say with certainty Stephen Spoonamore isn’t a Democrat.

The facts presented at our April 5th hearing, including testimony about the petition submission advice he received from Board of Elections Director Julie Leathers, convinced me he’s an Independent.

With Jean Mohr, the BOE Chair and other Democratic member, I voted to certify Mr. Spoonamore’s Independent candidacy.

Both Republican members voted against, so the Secretary of State broke the tie, choosing not to certify Mr. Spoonamore’s candidacy.

Judge Wiest agreed with …

Jackson Day 2016: Old Hickory Award goes to Cook

WOOSTER — There’s hardly an area Democratic candidate for office who doesn’t owe something of a debt to Sallie Cook.

And after more than four decades, Cook is still at it, brainstorming with tablemates at Friday’s 161st consecutive annual Jackson Day Dinner over possible recruits for local races coming up in the not too distant future even as her good friend Linda Houston introduced Cook as the party’s recipient of the 2016 Old Hickory Award.

A long-time correspondent for The (Akron) Beacon Journal and a member of …
