Bio: Josh Schaffer has spent nearly his entire adult life with the same company.  Starting in 2006, Josh started a job at Business Research Services, where he continued to be an employee until the owner retired during the pandemic.  While Josh started as a telephone surveyor, he was promoted to management.  There he managed a staff, as well as served as the Director of Political and Government Research.  Josh's educational background is from The University of Akron.  There he earned a B.S. of Political Science and Criminal Justice, a minor in psychology, a minor in criminal justice, and a Certificate of Applied Politics.  This well rounded education makes Josh specially suited to address crime and mental health and addiction in Akron.  During his education, Josh had the university's internship with the highest ranking official of the semester, in DC with Senator Sherrod Brown.  There Josh learned the art of working with other elected officials to make things work.  Today, Josh works as a Retail Store Manager at a retail cell phone store.  Now he is running for mayor.  He believes a government for and by the people means that its time to elect a working class person.  His opponents, a former lawyer turned councilman, councilwoman, and Deputy Mayor are out of touch with the majority of Akron who are working hard for hourly wages, many who still struggle financially.  That's Josh's story.
