Kerry McCormack Ward 3
Kerry McCormack was unanimously appointed to the Cleveland City Council April 4 to represent Cleveland’s Ward 3, one of the most diverse wards in the City. Ward 3 includes the Downtown, Tremont, Ohio City and Flats neighborhoods, as well as a portion of Clark-Fulton and the Stockyards.
Councilman McCormack replaces long-time Councilman Joe Cimperman, who announced in January he would resign his seat to head up the non-profit Global Cleveland, aimed at recruiting immigrants and refugees as well as foreign investment and businesses to Greater Cleveland.
McCormack, 28, resigned from his job as Director of Community Affairs for Ohio City Inc., the neighborhood community development corporation, where he works with area businesses, residents, non-profits and elected officials on both economic development as well as quality of life issues.
During his tenure at Ohio City Inc., McCormack, who is fluent in Spanish, created new community-based programming as well as strengthened existing ones including the Near West Recreation League, which has grown to include 1,000 children from the near west side participating in T-ball, basketball, softball and other sports. He has worked to expand and grow the Ohio City Fresh Food Collaborative, the six acre farm, and farmers market, just one mile from downtown Cleveland.
Councilman McCormack is a graduate of Villa Angela, St. Joseph and Miami (of Ohio) University, where he majored in International Studies (International Development), with minors in Spanish and Latin American Studies
Following his graduation from Miami, Councilman McCormack spent about two years in Madrid, Spain, working with approximately two hundred students, teachers and administrators enhancing their understanding of American culture and the English language.
