2017 marks the twentieth anniversary of Canal Park and the Akron baseball franchise. A major figure in getting the baseball team into downtown Akron was former mayor Don Plusquellic.

It has been two full years since Plusquellic stepped down as mayor, and he gave an update on his life on the Ray Horner Morning Show. Plusquellic talked about the impact Canal Park has had on downtown development, which includes the housing, the pubs and restaurants, and Lock 3 Park.

Looking back after two years away, Plusquellic is proud all he and his administration accomplished. He was glad to have kept the corruption out of the office, and believes he did all he could to bring jobs back to Akron, especially in the rubber industry. He also shared his thoughts on the Kenmore-Garfield merger.
