Frank Jackson said the next mayor’s got to come from the streets and the streets are saying very loudly that Zachary Reed is going to be Cleveland’s next mayor

The trust that Zachary Reed has earned from Cleveland's American Negro community can be compared to the trust the Negro community had for George Forbes. The 1989 campaign between Mr. Forbes and then state senator Michael White shocked Clevelanders who didn't realize the city was majority Negro. For the first time two American Negro men of high political achievements for their respective lengths of service were competing for mayor. While both men were known in the American Negro community, Mr. Forbes was known longer, better and had demonstrated he could be trusted longer.

CLEVELAND, OH – I’ve observed Cleveland’s mayors up close as a journalist or political participant since Dennis Kucinich in 1978.  On the East Cleveland side since the late attorney Darryl Eugene Pittman in 1985.  In addition to serving in the elected office for for years, I served a year as former East Cleveland Mayor Emmanuel Weli Onunwor’s chief of staff and as a part-time Special Assistant for Cleveland Mayor Michael Reed White.  My former Director of Law in East Cleveland, the late attorney Almeta Johnson, served as Kucinich’s chief prosecuting attorney. On January 1, 2022 the mayoral candidate Cleveland voters

Mike White’s new Jeff Johnson and Basheer Jones is his protege` Justin Bibb

CLEVELAND, OH – In May 1984 Cleveland Councilman Michael Reed White was selected to replace State Senator Morris Jackson.  He had served for 17 years in the Ohio Senate representing the 21st Senate District that encompassed Glenville with different boundaries. Case Western Reserve University law school graduate Jeffrey Johnson was 26 and selected to replace White.  Johnson was his protege`.  White was 5 years away from initially challenging the late Mayor George Voinovich for the job he held in 1989.  Johnson the following year in 1985 would be admitted to the Ohio Bar Association to practice law. White confirmed on

Frank Jackson’s “Kelley endorsement” isn’t sitting too well with Clevelanders who want to move on and close the door on his 32 year presence at city hall

CLEVELAND, OH – Clevelanders looking for an indication of how the 2021 campaign to replace Frank Jackson as mayor might turn out can look at two endorsements.  Jackson’s and the Plain Dealer’s.  Each endorsed Nina Turner to represent the 11th Congressional District in the August 3, 2021 primary election. Turner raised over $6.2 million to Shontel Brown’s $4.5 million and lost by 4000 votes with their endorsements and that of Russian United States Senator Bernard Gitman Sanders.  It’s Kevin Kelley who now has to see if he can do better with one of the two local endorsements.  The Plain Dealer

Ex-block grant director and Indian alien Tania Menesse appears to have targeted Councilman Ken Johnson, Buckeye and the jobs of 44 American Negro men

CLEVELAND, OH – Tania Maria Menesse was born in Mumbai, India on December 8, 1973 and arrived in the United States of America sometime in 1978 when her parents moved “their family” to Shaker Heights at the age of four. 10,000 members of the 100 year old Communist Party of India rallied against the administration of Indian President Narendra Modi in July.  Communism is outlawed in the United States of America and has been since 1950. If the Asian Indian’s “family” entered our nation legally Menesse was eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship at the age of 16.  If Noel

Cleveland’s Caucasian mayoral hopefuls are having a hard time collecting the 3000 signatures needed to get on the ballot

CLEVELAND, OH – So far none of the Caucasians seeking the 3000 signatures needed to get on the ballot for mayor of Cleveland have delivered petitions to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.  American Negroes Zack Reed, Justin Bibb and State Senator Sandra Williams have filed.  There have been no filings, yet, from Irish Catholic Cleveland council president Kevin Kelley or former United States Representative and Croatia Dennis Kucinich. Sources say former Cleveland Clerk of Court Benny Bonnano, an Italian American, has a team circulating petitions on the west side as a possible “sneak” entry into the race.  Voters will know

Sources say Williams is close to resigning now that Jackson’s decided not to seek a 5th term as Cleveland’s mayor and he’s got no political horse to ride for another four

CLEVELAND, OH – Reliable sources say Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams knows he has no law enforcement future with mayoral contenders like Zack Reed so he’s planning to announce, soon, that he’s leaving.  Reed in 2017 wanted to elevate Williams to director of public safety had he defeated Jackson for mayor that year.  Should voters send him to city hall in 2022 Reed wants him gone.  Williams has too much baggage associated with his management of the Cleveland Division of Police and is now presiding over a town faced with record breaking homicides and unsolved crime statistics for its 378,000
