One Man in Ohio Still Likes LeBron James ....

1/19/2011 8:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Not everyone in Ohio thinks LeBron James is a slimey no-good backstabbing championship-chasing traitor -- in fact, the mayor of his hometown claims he'll always have King James' back ... no matter what.

LeBron james
Mayor Don Plusquellic expressed his undying support in DC earlier today -- claiming 'Bron will always be welcome back in Akron ... because he still gives a lot back to his community.

Wonder how this will affect Don's approval rating back home ...

Haha...I'm from Akron, his approval rating can't get much lower. They tried to remove him from office about a year or so ago. Maybe he can take his talents to South Beach too.

The mayor has done an excellent job for the city of Akron, and James has done a lot for that community. Most of my students there aren't holding a grudge against him because they've seen or been a part of the support James has given in the last several years.

One narcissist proclaiming his man-love for another narcissist … a perfect match. Both have proven that neither can deliver in the clutch.

Trust me, more people in the Akron area like LeBron than the dumb drunk who poses as the Mayor of Akron. Heck, don (no, we do not capitalize his name) doesn't even live in Akron because it's such a **** hole thanks to his hatred of the local police.

Hey Mayor, why don't you shut down that Waste Management transfer station that's sitting on the University of Akron campus? Do the people of Akron know how many times Hazmat has had to come in their suits to check out a spill or something supicious? How much is Waste Management paying you to keep them open? If you're from Akron, look it up. You should know about it!
