Campbell advances plan for clinic to be run by convicted dentist

City council advanced an ordinance that would allow it to give 3.6 acres of city-owned land to a company that wants to build a dental clinic.

Council passed to a second of three required readings the ordinance, which would allow the transfer of land at Woodland Avenue and McCartney Road to United Dental Group LLC. The land used to be the site of a nightclub called Sharkey’s, then later the Essence Lounge. The building has been torn down.

Robert Maruschak, a retired dentist from Poland, and Alvin G. Sullivan, who owns a financial consulting business in Girard, gave council a letter last month that indicates a plan to develop a nine- to 12-chair dental clinic that would offer all phases of dentistry in a 4,000-square-foot, $1.2 million building.

The letter was on paper with the letterhead Dental Products and Services Inc. It refers to “our company” and is signed by Maruschak and Sullivan.

Maruschak told The Vindicator last month that he did not want to discuss specifics about the company that would be building the dental clinic.

Sullivan referred questions to Maruschak.

Maruschak, who pleaded guilty to felony drug charges in 2006, said he is not an owner of the company but is the “project manager” and will be the clinic director.

He said he would not practice dentistry there.

The Ohio State Dental Board notified him he was under review after his drug conviction, and he voluntarily surrendered his license in 2007. He is not allowed to practice in Ohio.

According to Vindicator files, Maruschak pleaded guilty to selling or trying to sell Vicodin and writing, selling or knowingly possessing false or forged prescriptions for that drug. He was sentenced to three years’ probation.

City Administrator Jack Dill said city officials still are investigating whether to enter into an agreement with the company for the land.

Mayor Bill VanSuch said he sponsored the legislation to “get it started.”

“There’s nothing that’s going to be in [Maruschak’s] name,” he said.

Really you idiots there are more than drug dealers and addicts in Campbell please. I have lived therefor close to 50 years and have never been more proud to live there. If you do not like us stay the hell out. Stay in your communities where your kids are drinking and driving and being charged with Vehicular homicide. Stay in your places where children are shooting each other. Crawl under the same rock in the communities where your children are ganging up and beating other kids for no reason at all. Just do me a favor stay the hell out of my city and shut the heck out.

No saying we do not have issues but you show me 1 community in this state that hasn't had problems and I will call you a liar.

EXCUSE ME, IT'S CAMPBELL WHAT DO YOU EXPECT.

And where are you from mrblue I hide behind a screen name? TELL ME THE NAME OF THE CITY IN MAHONING COUNTY OR TRUMBULL OR COLUMBIANNA FOR ALL THAT MATTER THAT HAS NO DRUG DEALERS NO CRIME NO BURGLARIES.

You are a total and complete MORON incapable of reasonable thinking. I think the reason why Campbell has been singled out a lot over the years is you always have to point the finger at the best to make the worst look better.

Lets not forget it was the YS&T, especially the CAMPBELL WORKS that built your fricken country. You think Boardman and Poland has some Campbell Ohio steel up somewhere, you bet your ass they do.

So because we were prosperous, popular, fun, exciting and vibrant as a community, we attracted the same problems that Vegas, Atlantic City and other great cities attract when the are Making progress. Drug Dealers, Users, prostitutes WHATEVER flock to where the action is.

When the mills closed however much of the good left and most of the bad stayed. WELL PAY ATTENTION CAUSE THE GOOD IS COMING BACK AND THE BAD IS GOING OUT. Its a new year for our city and a lot of new people with new ideas and a solid plan of action intend on putting our little gem of a city back into the gold setting it belongs in.
