Am I the only one that thinks that Diane Miller-Dawson is clueless? Is the mayor afraid to fire her for fear she would move and Akron would be without a village idiot? Will the mayor wait until the City is completely bankrupt before Ms Miller-Dawson hits the bricks? Why does he keep her on?

Diane Miller-Dawson is actually a meteorologist. Her financial figures change as often as the weather does in NE Ohio.
Maybe if the Mayor didn't stonewall the EPA on the sewer fiasco for 15-20 years and incur the multi million dollars in fines we wouldn't be having a triple rate hike on our bills. Here's one time Da Don wasn't able to force someone else to do it his way. And the taxpayers have to pay for his ego trip. And the "Sewers for Scholarships" was going to work. How much more baloney are the citizens of
Akron going to take before they barf the don out of office ?????
