Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, the Democratic candidate for governor, will return to Akron next week for another event.
FitzGerald will speak at the Akron Press Club at 11:45 a.m. Wednesday at Quaker Station, 135 S. Broadway. The event is co-sponsored by the University of Akron's Bliss Institute of Applied Politics.
FitzGerald has spoken in Akron twice in recent months, once at a union hall on the day Gov. John Kasich was delivering his State of the State address in nearby Medina, and more recently at a Summit County Progressive Democrats dinner May 2.
A Quinnipiac University poll released today showed Kasich with a 50-35 lead over FitzGerald.
