Phil Davison’s speech in support of his candidacy for Treasurer of Stark County, Ohio may not win many votes but it certainly has won many viewers. This speech went viral on YouTube. What is notable is that Davison actually has a master’s degree in communications from the University of Akron.
Davison is a councilman in the village of Minerva, Ohio. Notably, he has four degrees from Akron (two bachelor’s degrees and two master’s degrees in communication and public administration).
He is currently out of work after losing his job as a bailiff at the Stark County Court of Common Pleas. He makes a $260-a-month stipend as a village councilman.
He is a Republican seeking the GOP nomination for treasurer of Stark County in Ohio.
This would be the alternative approach to speakers like Benjamin Disraeli or Daniel Webster — what you lack in prose, you can make up in volume.
