Three people well known in Summit County politics are among the members of the new Leadership Akron class.


Jason Dodson, chief of staff for Summit County Executive Russ Pry; Tamela Lee, a Summit County Council member; and Stephanie York, Akron's spokeswoman and an assistant law director, are on the just-released list of 34 in the 2012-13 class.



The class spends one day each month focusing on such specific needs within the Greater Akron area as social services, health care, education and justice.
