The Mahoning County Democratic Party voted to endorse the Canfield Schools May levy. Members of the executive committee and central committee of the party who live in the Canfield school district voted on the issue.
Party Chairman David Betras said the motion passed by a vote of 4 to 3 at Monday’s meeting.
“I have always maintained that I will sit neutral on candidates seeking endorsement but I have not maintained a neutral stance on issues. ... Some issues are not Republican or Democratic but rather community issues,” Betras said in a press release.
Betras added that those three who voted against endorsing the levy were not voting against the levy itself but the on the principle of not endorsing issues.
