By Mark Labutis, Newark City Council member 4th ward -

During my campaign for Newark City Council, I spent a lot of time chatting with my neighbors on their front porches. On these porches, we would discuss the issues and I would get the privilege to see a glimpse of our great city through my neighbors’ eyes. Through these initial conversations, I learned that nearly everyone had a different viewpoint, according to their circumstance, about this city we all call home.

After completing my first month of service on City Council, this trend has remained constant: constituents see situations according to their individual circumstance. I’ve enjoyed hearing from my neighbors on various issues and helping them make the connection to the correct person or department to find solutions. From snow removal to noise ordinances, I’ve heard it all and learned that Newark has a great team in place to help all of our residents with their concerns.

I am exceptionally pleased that your Council has been able to help our downtown area by passing legislation that will help enforce our parking laws in that area. A significant amount of time and money has been poured into our downtown to make it more inviting and include more activities for all ages. This legislation should ease the parking issues and allow for more parking spaces to be available for shoppers to visit, patronize and enjoy our downtown area.

My first month on City Council has been rewarding.

I look forward to continuing to understand the needs of my city and my neighbors and will do my part to keep Newark a great place to live, work and worship.

County Commissioners Update – By Tim Bubb, Rick Black, Duane Flowers, County Commissioners

County Commissioners Update – By Tim Bubb, Rick Black, Duane Flowers, County Commissioners

We would like to share some big news for 2018. On February 28th the 13 history-related organizations that host the annual Ohio Statehood Day event at the Ohio Statehouse, Licking County, the City of Newark, and several elected leaders to receive the Ohio History Leadership Award. This statewide recognition of our community includes local strong leadership in advocating for World Heritage status for the Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks, the restoration of the 1876 Licking County Courthouse and for multiple examples of historic preservation initiatives throughout the County.  We look forward to joining a number of others in accepting this special recognition!  So, let’s begin 2018 with a look back at a very productive year in Licking County! Developments at year-end were significant as new investors stepped forward to turn around a couple of well-known and deteriorating properties. 2018 holds new promise for the Longaberger Basket/Office Building in east Newark and the Cherry Valley Lodge on the west side.  In December a developer, whose restoration company has been involved locally in the work on the Historic County Jail, the Penn Station and the NEWork Building all in downtown, and their partner, purchased the Basket.  The Developer says they have a ‘big vision’ for the building which will be announced in the months ahead.  Meanwhile, a new ownership group acquired the Cherry Valley Lodge and Waterpark in west Newark adjacent to Granville. They have plans to spend $13-million for much needed restoration and renovation of the property, which includes some 200 hotel rooms and meeting facilities and a 45-thousand square foot exhibition hall and event center In 2017 your Licking County Commissioners completed a much-needed restoration and renovation of the Historic 1876 Courthouse on the town square. The Courthouse was returned to its previous glory with a seven-phase project. A rededication will be held in the spring.  In addition, the County began a renovation of its East Main Street Annex which houses the Children Support Enforcement Agency CSEA. The project includes the addition of a permanent County Records Center. The combining of these two major projects, on this County owned site, is saving taxpayers some $3-million.  As with the 1876 Courthouse, a spring open house is planned.   This past year saw continued progress in cooperation with our Community Improvement Corporation (CIC) ‘Grow Licking County’ in bringing additional development and jobs to the County.  In 2017, we have seen investments and new opportunities from our existing partners at 1-800 Flowers with new call center positions in Hebron, a major corporate expansion by American Electric Power in New Albany, and new career opportunities at Hebron’s Transcendia.  Pataskala saw the technology firm, TechR2, expand into their community. Heath saw continued growth in the Central Ohio Aerospace & Technology Center with two big wins, Ohio Pack, LLC & GB Foods Incorporated.  And Facebook found a new data center home in New Albany with a project that could see expansion for nearly a decade along Beech Road and north of SR 161. This Economic Development achievement in 2017 adds up to 500 new jobs and over $800 million in private investment for Licking County.

The Licking County Republican Party lost a great woman trailblazer today.

Posted on: February 7th, 2018 by midnet.media

The Licking County Republican Party lost a great woman trailblazer today.  With much sadness, Keith Alexander let us know that his mother, Jane Alexander passed away peacefully this morning.  Republican for… probably 90 years for those who knew Jane that is not a stretch.  Jane was legendary for her unwaivering support of Republican candidates.  Her debates or discussions with fellow republican friends were sometimes the most challenging discussions or debates you would face – even from opposition.  Jane made you think. She made you work hard.  She made you take a stand.  She required everyone in the Licking County Republican Patriots Club to pick a candidate each election and work to elect that candidate.  Being the “foot soldiers” for Republicans was her passion.  Jane always walked and enjoyed walking door to door, registering voters, meeting voters and working the headquarters or various political booths at the strawberry festival, Hartford fair and at most political events.  More than 50+ years involvement with the Republican party.  Jane worked at the Board of Elections, served on Newark City Council, member of the Republican Women’s Club, served as elected long-time member of Republican Central Committee and served on the Republican Party Executive committee up until her passing.  Jane was proceeded in death by her husband, Jim Alexander, (mayor of Newark 1968-1971) passed in 2009.
