In a presidential election year, it can be hard to feel a sense of national unity in light of the intensive campaigning. We often adopt an “us versus them” mentality, emphasizing differences of opinion rather than embracing any shared convictions.
Summit County offers a number of different holiday events within the 41st House District and the neighboring areas. Come out to Fairlawn Town Center and participate in a Fourth of July parade or head to downtown Akron on July 2nd, 3rd or 4th to enjoy the Rib, White and Blue Festival at Lock 3. However you choose to celebrate, I wish you a safe and joyous Independence Day.
