At the Canton Regional Chamber, I worked on local business development within the Utica Shale. Our Chamber welcomes the industry to Northeast Ohio. I also worked in public policy, looking out for members' interests when business intersects with government. My past experience includes 33 years of daily newspaper journalism at The Repository in Canton.
