Each week throughout the pandemic Akron mayor Dan Horrigan joins the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss a slew of topics that have landed on his desk. Among those topics has been the side effect to the virus, which is the state of small and local businesses. Horrigan feels the businesses have held together due to grants, but they are in need of additional federal assistance. In other area business news, he also touched on the safe reopening of recreation centers and gave an update on Akron-Fulton Airport. The Akron mayor weighed in on the shooting at Ellet High School, which injured two and canceled the East vs. Firestone football game at halftime. Horrigan was disappointed in the senseless act after all the work the students, schools, and athletic departments put into fall sports returning, and he suggested not having fans at these games.
