               Akron, Ohio (May 19, 2015) - It has come to Mayor Don Plusquellic’s attention that the Akron Beacon Journal has been contacting businesses to solicit ads for a commemorative Section on May 31, 2015 featuring the Mayor.  For purposes of full disclosure and transparency, the Mayor feels it is important for the business community to know that he has not authorized, and in fact, was not asked about this special issue. 

The Mayor appreciates all of the letters of support he has already received, and if businesses wish to donate, he would prefer a donation be made to the Akron Community Foundation, 345 West Cedar Street, Akron, Ohio 44307, or the Donald L. Plusquellic Scholarship Fund c/o Terry Albanese, 2530 Cedar Creek Lane, Akron, Ohio 44312, so that the Akron community benefits from these donations.

            It is worth noting, that Community Leaders have already reached out to the Mayor about having an appreciation dinner later in the year.
