Canton Bronze Busts Dedication

Senior Appellate Court Judge Leroy Contie along with Mayor Stanley Cmich worked together to fight organized crime in Canton, Ohio. Even though they and their families were threated by gun shots being fired into their homes, these two courageous men went up against the mafia. Their civic heroism, personal integrity and friendship is a fascinating story. Both portraits will be cast in bronze and installed in a newly designed downtown mall in Canton to honor them.
