Mother of missing teen makes plea to Council

May 14, 2013

Carmilla Robinson, the mother of a missing Akron teen, made an emotional plea before Council Monday evening asking that police and citizens don't give up the search for her daughter. Robinson is hoping the discovery and rescue of three missing women in Cleveland inspires someone with information about her daughter's whereabouts to come forward. Nineteen-year old Taylor Robinson has been missing since May 3. Council also passed a resolution opposing an amendment to Ohio House Bill 59 that would discourage colleges and universities from helping non-resident students vote in Ohio. The resolution's sponsor, Linda Omobien, called the bill a suppressive tactic to make it more difficult for young voters. The amendment would prohibit schools from charging out-of-state tuition if they assist students with voter registration. Mike Williams said the intention is to reduce the number of voting students because young-voters heavily supported Barrack Obama in the presidential election.
