Malik on His Win: ‘People Responding to Vision’

AKRON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC and ONN) – He looks to be the next mayor of Akron in a race that was supposed to be close.

Ward 8 Councilman Shammas Malik garnered 43-percent of the vote in a crowded field for the Democratic nomination.

Malik believes people were behind his vision of what the city can be.

The 32-year-old would be the youngest-ever mayor of Akron, and its first leader of color.

Only a write-in campaign could produce any opposition in November.
