The Republican Party of Richland County held a Corn and Watermelon Festival to raise money for local republican candidates.

"The candidates come, and they help serve the food," said Bob Rodgers, chairman for the RPRC. "They get to meet all the people. We want people to get to know our candidates. They get to know who and what we are."

"I think it's an opportunity to hear what the issues are," said Mark Romanchuk, "And vice-versa, I think it's a great opportunity for some of the candidates to hear what people are thinking."

Romanchuk took the time to point out that the State of Ohio is doing exponentially better than it was four years ago - when the State of Ohio only had 88 cents in the State Savings Account. Today, the State of Ohio has a $1.4 billion surplus in its savings account, a feat made by cutting billions of dollars in taxes throughout the state. 

The festival was a success and attendees were pleased with the event.
