Local Government

Ohio’s Local Governments

State government has deprived cities of anticipated revenue causing cutbacks in public health and safety. As a former councilman and Mayor, I understand the revenue needs of local communities. I intend to reverse the policy and restore the relationship between local communities and state government. Stronger local governments mean: Power to We the People.

Protecting Public Ownership in Ohio

As local communities have become financially stressed, they have turned to privatizing public facilities and services. I intend to put an end to privatization of public services in Ohio. Just as I saved the people of Cleveland hundreds of millions of dollars when I put my career on the line to save Muny Light years ago, so too, will we save Ohio cities and taxpayers billions through stemming and reversing the tide of privatization. Public ownership means: Power to We the People.
