About Dustin Nanna

A young man who is anything but typical, Mr. Nanna is passionately involved with politics.  His strong leadership skills are put to use as Vice Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Ohio. Mr. Nanna is a staunch supporter of the idea that government exists by the permission of the people, and is firmly opposed to government overreach.

He describes himself as a “Jeffersonian Republican”.  Inspired and encouraged by Andrew Bush, who set a precedent locally by being elected to city council at the age of 18, Nanna – who is 23 – is making his first bid for public office. His organization of the Central Ohio Region of the Gary Johnson campaign, spearheading petition drives, distributing yard signs and literature, and tireless person-to-person campaigning, exemplify his administration capabilities.

Mr. Nanna works with the developmentally disabled as a Homemaker/Personal Care Professional.  When asked about his profession, Nanna states:

“It’s very rewarding.  It’s the most psychologically and emotionally fulfilling job I’ve ever had.  I think it’s just natural to want to help people.”

Issues

PARKING

PARKING

One of the most pressing issues facing our community is downtown parking. Countless citizens have expressed to me a need to increase the parking space available in Historic Downtown. To do so presents a unique challenge, as I do not wish to see any of our beautiful historic downtown demolished for this purpose. We should explore constructing a multi-level garage on one of the existing public lots. (Winter or near BP) My concern with this is cost. I do not wish to raise taxes for such a project unless it is a targeted ask at the voting booth.

THE POINT

THE POINT

The congestion at the junction of 36/37 on the East side is a major concern. As a former employee in that area I can attest to the fact that it does indeed get very bad during rush hour. At times, I sat in that line of traffic for upwards of 20 minutes. The current Council placed a permanent income tax increase on the ballot last November. It was soundly defeated and for good reason. A permanent tax increase is not the way to address the $6.3 million funding gap the city faces after Federal and State monies. As with parking, I believe that if the City needs money to widen “the point”, that it should come from a targeted ask and for only this project.

DORA

DORA

DORA – Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area – is a boon to our community!  I supported this action and look forward to the economic and cultural benefits.  If the DORA project proves to be a success, we should explore expansion to mimic the implementation in Canton.
