FAKE ROBO CALL ALERT: On Tuesday night, August 7, I learned that a childish and cowardice person(s) is utilizing robo calls from a Macon, Georgia phone number claiming that Wayne County Executive, Robert Ficano has endorsed me. I am a Republican and never asked nor do I want Ficano's endorsement. Some people have too much time on their hands. Gregory Demopoulos Canton Trustee
