CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, OhioClevelandUrbanNews.Com and the KathyWrayColemanOnlineNewsBlog.Com , Ohio's most read digital Black newspaper and Black blog, endorse former councilman and former state representative Eugene Miller for Cleveland City Council in Ward 10 relative to the Nov 7 general election, Miller facing Cuyahoga County Councilman Anthony Hairston. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE FACEBOOK PAGE OF VOTE EUGENE MILLER FOR CLEVELAND CITY COUNCIL IN WARD 10

 

A cadre of community activists also support Miller, including Ward 10 activist Donna Walker Brown, and Alfred Porter Jr, the president of the grassroots group Black on black Crime Inc who also resides in Ward 10, a predominantly Black east side ward that includes South Collinwood, Glenville Euclid Park, St Clair-Superior and Nottingham Village neighborhoods.

 

A Democrat like Hairston, Miller served in the state legislature representing the 10th district from 2007-2009 and was a member of city council from 2009 until Councilman Jeff Johnson unseated him in 2013, both forced to run against each other after city council was reduced from 19 members to 17, a heated election with Cleveland Mayor Fank Jackson backing Miller and Johnson securing the backing of councilmen Kevin Conwell and Michael Polensek, and state Rep Bill Patmon (D-10).

 

When Johnson decided to for mayor this year instead of seking reelection to city council Miller, then a quality control specialist for the Department of Public Works for the city,  decided to make another run for the Ward 10 seat, and he came in second to Hairston in the Sept 12 primary election that drew a crowded field of 10 candidates.

 

He is protege of the late congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones, Ohio's first Black female congresswoman who succeeded former congresswoman Louis Stokes, Ohio's first Black congressperson.

 

Tubbs Jones died unexpectedly of a brain aneurysm shortly after Hillary Clinton, whom she supported as her national campaign chairperson, lost the Democratic nomination for president in 2008 to  Barack Obama, America's first black president who served two terms and left office in January. (Editor's note: Tubbs Jones was succeeded by current 11 congressional district congress woman Marcia L. Fudge, a former Warrensville Heights mayor and former chief of staff to Tubbs Jones).

 

One Ward 10 resident said Miller is her choice for city council.

 

"I want to go on record as endorsing Eugene Miller," said Gloria Grady, a 35-year Cleveland resident. "He is honest, reliable and willing to work the long hours needed for the position."

 

His campaign chairwoman, Patrice White, said Miller "will fight to increase the quality of lfe for Ward 10 residents."

 

And Miller himself told ClevelandUrbanNews.Com and the KathyWrayColemanOnlineNewsBlog.Com that he is " committed to serving the constiuents of Ward 10."

 

Both Miller and Hairston are Black men, but Miller, 43, is the best choice for the 17-member largely Black city council.

 

A self-made Black man who dropped out of high school at 16, fathered a daughter at 18, whom he raised as a single father, and then went on to earn a bachelor's degree and an MBA, Miller and his two younger brothers were raised by a single mother, and all three have college degrees, and master's degrees.

 

He now has two daughters, both of whom have finished college.

 

He said Sunday at a rally as to the 8th-year anniversary of the murders of 11 Black women on Imperial Avenue by serial killer Anthony Sowell that if he wins in November he will hold committee meetings and hearings as to the epidemic of rape and murders of women and girls, Black and poor women and girls in particular.

 

His reputation in responding to the rape and murders of women in his ward when he was a councilman is a good one, according to the family of 18-year-old murder victim Sheirellda Terry, a victim of East Cleveland serial killer Michael Madison.

 

Hairston, 31, is  a status quo politician, who voted with other members of the 11-member largely White Cuyahoga County Council to endorse the Quicken Loans Arena deal that provides millions of dollars for renovations to the stadium that houses the talented Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team, whom we also support, a mega team led by NBA megastar LeBron James, Ohio's native son.

 

But the Q-Deal has become a priority over inner city predominantly Black neighborhoods in the largely Black major American city of Cleveland that are struggling to survive.

 

While we love the city of Cleveland we also know that disenfranchised residents, particularly Blacks and poor people, have been routinely overlooked for big business and the establishment in general.

 

And Hairston has been silent as to the ongoing theft of homes of Cuyahoga County residents via illegal foreclosures for big banks and mortgage companies like the corrupt JPMorgan Chase Bank, theft supported by common pleas judges and a sheriff's office that illegal deflates the value of foreclosed homes for sheriff sales, all to accommodate the elite.

 

Calls to Hairston for help as to the foreclosure dilemma have gone unanswered, and Cuyahoga County Council, a different governmental venue from Cleveland City Counil, now wants to charge Cuyahoga County residents 10 cents for plastic grocery bags at stores, a ridiculous proposal offered by County Councilwoman Sunny Simon that is expected to be voted upon later this year.

 

Enough is enough.

 

Miller does not have a reputation of ignoring constituents' concerns. He is best suited to lead Ward 10, which, like other east side neighborhoods, struggles with poverty, abandoned homes, gun violence, and debilitating streets, among other traditional inner city problems.

 

Ward 10 voters should elect Miller on Nov 7.
