Recently we had two forums in Ward 14 with the candidates for Cleveland City Council.  Questions were submitted in writing by audience members.

 

I find it quite interesting the broad range of question asked by two different audience.  I will compare the topics again in a later post but right now, I am so proud of my friends and neighbors,  The are informed, knowledgeable and engaged in their neighborhoods and community.
