CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio-Ohio 11th Congressional District Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (pictured), a Warrensville Heights Democrat whose largely Black congressional district includes major parts of Cleveland and its eastern suburbs, invites constituents and others to a town hall meeting on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017.


The greater Cleveland gathering will be held from 10 am-3 pm at the Tri-C Corporate College East Auditorium in Warrensville Heights, Ohio, 4400 Richmond Road. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE FACEBOOK PAGE OF THE CONGRESSWOMAN MARCIA FUDGE FEBRUARY 25 TOWN HALL FORUM

 

During the open-to-the public event Rep. Fudge, one of two Blacks in Congress from Ohio, will discuss legislative updates from Washington, programs and services from her offices, and her policy agenda for the 115th Congress.


Fudge will also entertain questions about the Trump administration, and policy changes in general, as well as her legislative plans for 2017.


The federal lawmaker said that thoughts and concerns of her constituents are paramount and that she invites the public to the community forum.


The forum comes on the heels of unrest regarding policies by President Donald Trump regarding his on-hold temporary Muslim ban, his efforts to derail abortion rights and Obamacare initiatives with support from congressional Republicans, and other matters impacting Blacks and other minorities, senior citizens, immigrants, women, the LGBT community, and children.


Pro-President Donald Trump organizers have scheduled a protest in down town Cleveland on Feb 28, just three days before the aforementioned town hall forum.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, CLEVELAND, Ohio – Ohio Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11) (pictured) announced Friday that she will attend two events this week in Cleveland with leaders of Muslim communities in forums that are open-to-the-public. (See full details and a list of community speakers below this article)


The first event is Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 2 pm at  Masjid Bilal, 7401 Euclid Avenue, and the second gathering, both of them of which are on the city's largely Black east side, and of which, in addition to Fudge, will include Muslim and other speakers as well as affiliates of the Ohio ACLU, is Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 10 am at First Cleveland Mosque, 3613 East 131st Street.


The federal lawmaker, one of two Blacks in Congress from Ohio, told Cleveland Urban News.Com, Ohio's most read digital Black newspaper, that she strongly opposes President Donald Trump’s executive order to ban Muslims from seven Muslim oriented countries from entering the United States, a controversial temporary ban now on hold after an appeals court deemed it unconstitutional.


“The 11th Congressional District is home to many Muslims and Muslims are a part of the fabric of our community," said Fudge, who leads Ohio's largely Black 11th congressional district, which includes major parts of the city of Cleveland and several of its eastern suburbs. "I fully support them and their right to worship freely and discrimination based on religion is squarely against our nation’s founding principles."


Fudge said that "it is  time for the President to do what is right and live up to the promise of America."


Raj Ali of the Cleveland-based Peace in the Hood said she invites everybody to Tuesday's forum with the congresswoman.


"It is open to the public and we encourage everybody to attend," said Ali.


Don Bryant, president of the greater Cleveland Immigrant Support Network, said the discrimination against immigrants is deplorable.


"I will be at the event and we appreciate the opportunity to meet on this issue with Congresswoman Fudge," Bryant told Cleveland Urban News.Com.

"I bring a set of important relevant values to being a judge, values rooted in my upbringing that include fairness, compassion, and treating others with respect and dignity," Judge Miday said last year as part of her campaign platform. "These values are unwavering and non-negotiable."

 

Miday, 40, is married to Democratic political strategist Ryan Miday and the couple has three young children.

 

She is a former assistant prosecutor for the city of Cleveland and a prior civil litigator.

 

Cuyahoga County, which includes the largely Black city of Cleveland, is the largest of Ohio's 88 counties and is roughly 29 percent Black.

 

Miday ousted McMonagle 54 to 46 percent with strong support from Black voters, including Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, a Warrensville Heights Democrat, other Black greater Cleveland elected officials, and community activists.


McMonagle, 40, whose parents were common pleas and 8th District Court of Appeals judges, was appointed by Gov John Kasich to serve out the unexpired term of disgraced former judge Lance Mason, a Black Democrat and former state senator who spent time in prison for assaulting his now ex -wife before their two young children.


The 34-member largely White general division common pleas court of Cuyahoga County hears felonies and civil cases with damages sought in excess of $15 thousand, among other legal matters.

Black Cleveland teen shot and killed on A. J. Rickoff Elementary School playground identified and was murdered two streets over from where murdered Cleveland teen Alianna DeFreeze was last seen....Homicides are on the rise in Cleveland

E-mail Print PDF

By Kathy Wray Coleman, editor-in-chief


CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio- A 17-year-old Cleveland teen was shot and killed Sunday, Feb 19 on the playground of Andrew J. Rickoff Elementary School on the city's largely Black east side, just two streets over and less than a half a mile from where murdered 14-year-old teen Alianna DeFreeze went missing last month.


Both victims were Black.


Devin Price, 17, died Sunday night at University Hospitals after being shot at about 6:15 pm that day at the school at 3500 East 147th Street near Kinsman Avenue in the Kinsman-Mount Pleasant neighborhood.


Police said Sunday that Price was shot in the stomach and that they have no suspects, the 15th homicide this year, according to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office.

 

Alianna's body was discovered by police three weeks ago in an abandoned home at the the 9400 block of Fullmer Avenue


She was last seen Jan 26 at the 3400 block of East 149th Street
when she was getting off a Regional Transit Authority bus headed to school, less than six blocks from A. J. Rickoff school.


Sex offender Christopher Whitaker, 44 and of South Euclid, is in custody on a $three million bond in DeFreeze's death and has pleaded not guilty to several charges,  including kidnapping and aggravated murder.


Homicides are on the rise in the majority Black major American city, which is led by three-term Black Mayor Frank Jackson, who, this year, is seeking reelection to an unprecedented fourth term


Cleveland recorded 168 homicides in 2016, the deadliest year in decades, and up 13 percent from 2015, though neighboring suburbs also saw increases, mainly due, like Cleveland, to heroin and opiate overdoses on the rise.


Both Price and DeFreeze, who was allegedly bludgeon to death, were murdered in Ward 2, which is represented by city councilman Zack Reed, a vocal critic of the mayor and a possible mayoral contender for the non-partisan race with a June 29 deadline for submitting nominating petitions.


In addition to Jackson, other high profile contenders that have announced they will run for mayor include Ward 10 Councilman Jeff Johnson, former East Cleveland Mayor Eric Brewer, and Edwins restaurant CEO Brandon Chrostowski, who is White but is gaining momentum among blacks for his hiring of ex-offenders that he says deserve a "second chance."


All 17 city council seats are also up for grabs this year with a Sept 12 non-partisan primary for both mayor and city council and a Nov 7 general election for the two top vote- getters.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM- SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio-Cuyahoga County Democratic Party affiliate Lang Dunbar Jr. (pictured), also a member of the county Democratic party's executive committee and a long time union advocate, died Friday night, Feb. 17 in his sleep at his home in Shaker Heights after a battle with cancer. He was 81.

 

Arrangements are pending with a memorial scheduled for March.

 

City of Cleveland Community Relations Board Director Blaine Griffin, a former vice president of the county Democratic party and a protege of three-term Black mayor Frank Jackson who, this year, is seeking reelection to an unprecedented fourth term, praised Dunbar as community oriented, and said he was "ole school."

 

"He was tough, tenacious, pugnacious and radical, yet he was loyal, sincere, compassionate, and caring, and most of all, he was my friend," said Griffin.

 

A Shaker Heights precinct committeeman, Dunbar lived in Shaker Heights with his wife Gladys, a former Cuyahoga County Board of Elections employee who worked in the legal and community relations departments there, and a trained lawyer and former Common Pleas Court judicial clerk.

 

Like his longtime wife, he loved politics, and Antioch Baptist Church, a prominent Black east side church that will host the memorial next month and where Gladys, his third wife, still remains active.

 

In addition to his wife  Gladys, Dunbar Jr. is survived by five grown children; Lang Dunbar III, Deborah Kinds and Denise Cannon, all three of Cleveland, Melissa Brunner of California, and Eric Dunbar of Youngstown, Ohio.

 

Though he was a resident of Shaker Heights when he died, he lived in Cleveland most of his life, worked briefly for Cuyahoga County, and retired as a job coordinator for the United Labor Agency.

 

 

His oldest son, Lang Dunbar III, told Cleveland Urban News.Com that his father was a strong labor man who pushed his children to have a work ethic and to be independent.

 

"My dad, whom I got to really know when I was grown, told us to work and be independent and he was a strong union man," said Dunbar III. " He supported unions and always went to meetings."

 

The younger Dunbar, 51, met Blaine Griffin when Blaine's father, Ray Griffin, was his high school assistant football coach in Youngstown, and Blaine, then in elementary school,  was a ball boy at football games.

 

Blaine Griffin, a Youngstown native, said that he knew Dunbar III in the 80s and met his father in the 90s.

 

All three, Blaine, and the younger and older Dunbar, are former president Obama supporters.

 

"My father and I both worked on the Obama campaign," said Dunbar III of the nation's first Black president who won the presidency in 2008 with strong support from Black voters nationwide and in the pivotal state of Ohio, Cuyahoga County his Democratic stronghold, and the largest of 88 counties statewide. "My dad loved Obama and said he is a champion for all people, and not just some of the people, including the non-traditional people.

 

And the younger Dunbar did not hold his tongue in saying that his dad had his struggles in life like many Black men that seek to overcome the obstacles of institutional racism in a country that traditionally has a double standard for people of color, Black men in particular.

 

"I saw my dad come back from a low point in his life to overcome, and I will miss him," said Dunbar III.

 

Charles E. Bibb Sr,  a former East Cleveland city councilman and president of the both the greater Cleveland Carnegie Rountable and the Ohio 8th House District Black Caucus, said he lost a friend, and a fellow Democratic activist.

 

"He was a supporter of the Carnegie Roundtable, a Cuyahoga County Democratic political activist, an avid bowler, and a sport's fan of football, basketball and baseball." said Bibb Sr. "And LeBron James was his favorite athlete."
