Endorsement for Mayor of Cleveland

On Monday Jun 26, 2017 I had the opportunity to attend the Mayoral Forum
sponsored by the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus and the Ward 14
Democratic Club at the VFW on West 61st Street in Clark-Fulton.
Iíve since attended most of the other forums as well.

Of all the candidates present at the event the one that caught my attention
was former East Cleveland Mayor Eric Brewer. He was the only one who
appeared to have a true grasp of the issues concerning Cleveland combined
with a positive track record to validate his claims. He comes across as
someone who chooses to be a statesman rather than a politician. This combined
with his intelligence, charisma and burning desire to serve the citizens of
Cleveland makes him the ideal successor to soon to be former Mayor Frank
Jackson. Frankly, he is the only candidate taking this election seriously.

Contrary to what the media and his opponents would like the public to believe
Eric only appears to grow angry at two things. One, when he is falsely accused
of something and two, with the rampant injustice that pervades the City of Cleveland.
Just as with Eric I am not satisfied with the performance of the Cleveland Schools
and its inability to teach our children the basics of reading, writing, speaking and
listening. I am not satisfied with the anemic job growth in Cleveland especially
the blown opportunity of failing to land the Amazon Fulfillment Center which
ended up in North Randal. I am not satisfied with the lack of discipline and
training in our police department resulting in the unnecessary deaths of Cleveland
citizens when it clearly could have been prevented. I am not satisfied when
Cleveland is ranked at the top of the list in poverty while crime is rampant in
our city. I am not satisfied with the catering to owners of sports teams by
Cleveland officials when they know in their own conscience it is the wrong thing
to do.

I believe it is time to get the City of Cleveland moving again. We have stagnated
for the last 12 years under a political philosophy of "it is what it is". Never let
it be said that this was the time the tide ran out on Cleveland but rather was the
time the tide finally came in. Eric Brewer is that tide and represents the pro-active
change Cleveland needs during these challenging times. Right now Cleveland is
a ship without a captain {and a rudder as well}. Eric Brewer will be that captain
if voters make the right choice on September 12, 2017 {my 54th birthday}.
