Dr. Syed Taj was sworn in as the newly elected trustee of the Canton Township on November 20, 2008 at 12:30 PM. Tajâ€™s race was most notable because of the fact that it indicates changing demographics in the once-bright-red Canton district.
All of the above winning candidates appeared at the Canton candidate open house on August 1, 2008 at the MCWS mosque.
From left they are: former FBI agent John Anthony, Businessman Pat Williams, the judge who performed the swearing in ceremony, Dr. Syed Taj, a court clerk, and at far right is Todd Caccamo, a reelected incumbent.
