City Auditor Jim Stith thought he was simply one of hundreds attending Friday evening’s annual fundraising Lincoln-Reagan dinner put on by Ohio Republicans. The event was at Paul Brown Stadium and featured Minnesota’s Congresswoman Michelle Bachman as the keynote speaker. Without warning, Mr. Stith suddenly found himself being presented with the 2010 Taft-Shuler award by former Congressman Steve Chabot. The award recognized Mr. Stith for “dedication and commitment.” Sources tell us he was both "surprised and honored." Congratulations to our City Auditor!
