AKRON, Ohio (WJW) — Democratic presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg made an appearance in Akron Wednesday evening.

He met with small business owners and held an organized campaign event at the Bounce Innovation Hub to announce his jobs and growth income agenda.

He also announced his proposed policy to bring some more opportunities to people in places he says have been short-changed.

Earlier Wednesday, Akron Mayor Daniel Horrigan endorsed Bloomberg, praising his track record and agenda on climate change, as well as gun safety laws and a healthcare plan that expands on the Affordable Care Act.

This was Bloomberg's second trip to Ohio along his campaign trail.  Back in December, he was in Chillicothe talking about the opioid epidemic.
