Ceasefire in Gaza
This has been going on for FAR too long. We NEED a ceasefire now. If we spent the money being sent to Israel on social programs, community outreach, etc., we would have a better America and a better world.

People's Resolution
Seeing that Cleveland City council has no spine/have financial interests tied to Israel, the people will pass their own ceasefire resolution for the children being blown apart in Gaza. We can see Bibb is too busy posing on Instagram with music stars while the school district sits in shambles with millions in deficits. You HATE children, demonstrably. Meanwhile, also expunging records of money launderers so they can continue to govern in Cleveland, and let old farts go on racist tirades from their office's phones. It's a racket and a joke. The more I learn about this city leadership, the more I realize how messed up it is. What kind of inhumane, out of touch, self important, privileged know-nothing says no to a ceasefire? Says no to ending genocide? Says yes 13,000 children are dead, let's do it some more! People who get money from it, apparently. These representatives are, quite literally, enemies of the people and must have their powers and privileges stripped.

Cleveland Public School Budget Deficit
Why are we not talking about decades of lavish tax abatements for fancy hotels, billionaire-owned sports franchises, luxury apartments, gargantuan nonprofit land holdings and swank office buildings that have effectively stripped urban public schools of desperately needed revenue increases? All this austerity talk now with respect to the public schools is being treated as if it’s somehow a good thing, sounding a lot like idiot Neutron Jack Welsh’s sadistic business orthodoxy: cut the fat, tighten the belt, trim the deadwood; like this is an inherently healthy process. It’s anything but healthy. It’s deeply toxic. NOBODY is talking about increasing funding, only cutting expense. So immediately, half of the critical arithmetic is made irrelevant. 40 years in business taught me this essential lesson: you NEVER can cut your way to success. It's a continuous death spiral for the city when we refuse to invest more in public schools, and the city’s children. Which is why we can expect only worse outcomes as a result, with no end in sight. Very sad.

Cleveland Missing the Mark
It is abhorrent to me that Cleveland city council can easily pass resolutions regarding Ukraine, but is unwilling to stand with the majority of Americans, including over 70% of democrats, that are calling for a ceasefire (https://www.dataforprogress.org/blog/2024/2/27/voters-support-the-us-calling-for-permanent-ceasefire-in-gaza-and-conditioning-military-aid-to-israel#:~:text=Around%20two%2Dthirds%20of%20voters,escalation%20of%20violence%20in%20Gaza.) All this while council president is taking pictures with known harassers of the Palestinian community, and council members are spewing racist rhetoric about Palestinians in Cleveland.

Pro Palestinian advocates
I think Cleveland as a City should not make proclamations about things such as this. We should focus on us and what can bring us together. I see how all the council people are respectful to each other. If only all of us acted that way. I know the protesters have their own thoughts, but I do not believe they have The City of Cleveland as their main concern. They can't impose their will on others. Cleveland first!

Public Transportation
The flats east bank do not have any public transportation since the rapid closed. Can the B Like Trolley add a stop or 2 in the flats? In the winter it is difficult to walk up the hill to the stops on west 9th Street.

Black History
I remember playing softball for Chesterfield playground, around 1962 and on our way to play Glenside, we were called all kinds of niggers by grown-ups and kids. At that time that area was mostly white. During1964 and 1965, Busing was a big issue. I remember Black children bused to elementary school in Murray Hill. These Black children were not allowed to eat lunch with the white children and also one day the Black children, parents and school officials were assaulted by the People in Murry Hill. Also, Black children going to Collinwood High School were assaulted by grown White men as they got off the bus to attend school. Some of these Brothers and Sisters, I knew personally, and some were my friends. Some of us were Drafted, some Volunteered and some died in Vietnam for a country that did not protect us a children. I REMEMBER .

Public Comment
The public comment on display in this city has been abhorrent. People using the microphone or shouting from the gallery with calls for violence, threatening council members, erasing Israel from the map. Where has decency gone?
