Despite a terrible year and a rough-and-tumble, often violent political era, the elections of 2020 are behind us. It is likely that marches will still happen, police departments will be defunded and large cities will suffer under riot and destruction. We are fortunate, however, that Barberton does not operate under big city politics. Our police department is intact and our city, uniformly across parties, supports law and order. The Magic City remains a refuge for its citizens, despite the unrest and pressures of the outside world.

A major positive for Barberton and the southern district of Summit County, was the re-election of Bethany McKenney. An indefatigable fighter, full of fresh ideas, energy, and love for people, Bethany will remain our advocate, as voted upon overwhelmingly, by the the people. Bethany won over longtime political figure, Bob Genet, by a 20 point margin, in bipartisan voting. This was not a referendum against Mr. Genet, who is well-known and loved in the city, but was a vote for the ceaseless work that Bethany has executed day-in and day-out, during her freshman term as County Council member. It didn’t seem that a day went by that Bethany wasn’t spotted, expending her time and effort helping the varied needs of the people and businesses of her district.

Congratulations is due Bethany for a successful run, and a thanks to her for the work she has already done in her efforts to directly improve the lives of her constituents. So, thank you, Bethany, for all you do, and thanks, in advance, for the hard work that will be done, as we face challenges going forward.
