“Meet the Mayor” with the City of Canton’s New Mayor, Tom Bernabei

On November 3, 2015, residents of the City of Canton elected a new Mayor, Tom Bernabei. At our February Fast Break Breakfast, we are honored to be joined by Mayor Berbabei and invite you to “Meet the Mayor” and learn more about his agenda for the City of Canton.

Whether you live in the City or a surrounding community, the strength of our county seat, Canton, plays an important role in the strength of the larger region. We encourage you to attend what promises to be an insightful morning about Mayor’s plan for the City moving forward.

Fast Break attendees have the opportunity to obtain business leads through enjoyable networking activities at an event that has built a reputation as one of the most energetic lead producing sessions in Stark County. You’ll hear compelling speakers, meet new business contacts and enjoy a delicious breakfast. And, if you bring a door prize valued at $15 or more, you’ll even star in your very own 30 second commercial to promote your business!
