CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio -The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, on Thursday, denied an official request by Una HR Keenon, who served as municipal judge and school board president and was the runner-up in the Democratic mayoral election primary in East Cleveland this month to Mayor Brandon King, for her name to be placed on the November ballot, in spite of a city charter provision that requires that "the two candidates each receiving the most votes cast in the primary election shall proceed to a runoff election" remains in the charter."


Keenon and her attorney say the aforementioned language mandates that the top two vote-getters in the primary, regardless of partisanship, such as Democrat or Republican, are to advance to the November general election.


East Cleveland is a 95 percent Black impoverished suburb of Cleveland with roughly 18,000 residents.


The elections board, led by Chairwoman Inajo Davis Chappell, an attorney, rejected Keenon's arguments saying another provision in the charter, per an amendment in 2002, changed previous non-partisan elections in  city to partisan.

How the board of elections decided which position to choose among the conflicting city charter provisions is not clear.


Also a licensed attorney, Keenon, and her attorney, Angela Bennett, said Thursday that the charter language makes it clear that Keenon should be on the November ballot after coming in second in the primary election, and that Keenon will sue.

East Cleveland law director Willa Hemmons, who reports to Mayor King and is an at will employee chosen by the mayor, lobbied against Keenon to the board of elections.  It voted Thursday to certify the results of the Sept 12 primary election

Keenon, who is endorsed by 11th Congressional District Congresswoman Marcia Fudge and the county Democratic party, among others, lost to King in the primary election , 33 percent to his 44 percent out of four Democratic candidates on the ballot, also including former councilman Mansell Baker, and Dana Hawkins Jr.


King will face Green Party candidate and community activist Devin Branch in November.


The outcome in East Cleveland may dictate a pending proposed merger with Cleveland promoted by the establishment and the Plain Dealer Newspaper, among others, a merger that  proponents say is necessary to rescue the nearly bankrupt East Cleveland from despair.


Opponents of the merger, including East Cleveland councilpersons Nathaniel Martin and Barbara Thomas, who supported Keenon, and Keenon herself, argue that East Cleveland should maintain its autonomy from Cleveland, a city with a population of about 385,000 people.


Both Cleveland and East Cleveland are Democratic strongholds in the heavily Democratic Cuyahoga County that is roughly 29 percent Black and the second largest of 88 counties statewide, behind Franklin County, which includes the capital city of Columbus, Ohio's largest city, followed by Cleveland.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-Cleveland, Ohio - Expanding and enhancing his campaign for the final weeks leading up to the Nov. 7 general election, where he will face Ward 2 Councilman Zack Reed in a non-partisan runoff, Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson has named key additions to his campaign's leadership team, including a new campaign manager.


Michael Bowen, who is Black and 30-years-old, has been named campaign manager and will oversee day-to-day operations Jackson, a three term Black mayor seeking an unprecedented fourth term, announced to staffers at his campaign headquarters on Carnegie Avenue in Cleveland on Thursday morning.


In addition, Mayor Jackson announced that R Strategy Group will lead campaign strategy initiatives, and communications.


Firm vice president Jon Benedict will serve as chief strategist and work with Jeff Rusnak, R Strategy Group's president and CEO, on media and other communication, and with vice president Kathy Berta on field outreach and volunteer activities.


Both Reed, who is also Black and has served 16 years on city council, and Jackson, a city council president turned mayor, are Democrats.


"We are very excited to join this great team and help ensure Mayor Jackson's re-election," Bowen said . "Cleveland has momentum today, and that's thanks in large part to Mayor Jackson's leadership."


Bowen said that "there is so much at stake in this election, and we have to continue the progress achieved under Mayor Jackson."


An attorney with the powerful law firm of Taft, Stettinius & Hollister who will take a temporary leave from his law practice to lead Jackson's campaign, Bowen worked formerly for former Democratic Lakewood mayor Ed FitzGerald, who is also a former Cuyahoga County executive who lost a bid for governor in 2014 to John Kasich, a 2016 unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination for president.  And he assisted campaigns for his mother, the late Lynn Ruffner, a Shaker Heights councilwoman who died in 2014, and since ousted Cuyahoga and County Prosecutor Tim McGinty, a former common pleas judge who lost a Democratic primary for reelection to current county prosecutor Michael O'Malley in 2016. He was a field director for the May 2015 renewal of the county’s Arts & Cultural Levy, which passed with 73 percent of the vote.


The mayor's former campaign manager, Wayne Clark of  the state of Maryland, who is also Black and led Jackson to a 39 percent victory among eight challengers relative to the Sept 12 non-partisan primary, will remain as part of his campaign team as a consultant when needed, Jackson said Thto ursday.


"I want to thank Mr. Clarke for his efforts build this campaign and to help win the primary election," Jackson said. "We are expanding our campaign team to ensure that we have the energetic leadership to take the campaign to the next level. I believe that this team will take us to victory in November."


The shake-up in the mayor's campaign team comes with the Nov. 7 general election just five weeks away.


And though Jackson finished the primary with roughly 39 percent of the vote, and Reed with a distant 22 percent, 61 percent of voters chose somebody other than Jackson, and 78 percent chose a candidate other than Reed, who, this week, named Kevin Jones, a senior account executive with Stern advertising, as his new campaign manager to replace Angela Shute Woodson.

 

Jones is Black, and a key organizer of Reed's annual family Unity in the Park concert and festival at Luke Easter Park on the city's largely Black east side.

Dwyane Wade signs with the Cavaliers and reunites with LeBron James

CLEVELAND, Ohio- It is worth remembering, as Dwyane Wade (pictured) and LeBron James embark on their reunion in Cleveland, that Wade recruited James to join him in Miami seven years ago.

As the headliners in a collective that also featured Chris Bosh, Wade and James crammed greatness into their four seasons as teammates on the Heat: four consecutive trips to the N.B.A. finals and two championships. It almost felt inappropriate, unbefitting of their excellence, that their run ended with a loss. CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL ARTICLE AT NEW YORK TIMES.COM

North Korea does not want war, but wants a deal like the Iran Nuclear Deal that Iran got under the Obama administration in 2015, some GOP federal lawmakers say as President Trump threatens to "totally destroy North Korea if necessary"

By Kathy Wray Coleman, editor-in-chief

 

CLEVELANDURBANNEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio-As tensions between the United States and North Korea increase, some GOP federal lawmakers, such as  Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona, say North Korea is really not looking for war but for a deal similar to the Iran Nuclear Deal reached under the Obama administration.


The controversial nuclear weapons deal, reached in 2015 between the United States, the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, and Iran, seeks to end what was then a 12-year crisis over Iran's suspicious nuclear weapons program.


It is one of former president Barack Obama's signature policy initiatives, the measure passing a Republican -dominated congress and United States Senate with opposition from key GOP Senate leaders, led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.


It was vehemently opposed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who unsuccessfully lobbied against it during a speech before a joint session of congress in March of 2015, a speech arranged by then House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and boycotted by several Democratic lawmakers.


A Republican, Boehner resigned from congress in September of 2015 amid a fallout with key right-wing Republican congressional operatives.

 

The nuclear weapons deal also lifts crippling sanctions against Iran over a period of years, and places a variable freeze on sensitive nuclear materials for at least a decade.


President Donald Trump, a Republican, wants the Iran Nuclear Deal gone, saying it is embarrassing, and too lenient, although Iranian president Hassan Rouhani disagrees and wants the agreement to remain intact.


Speaking to the United Nations General Assembly (UMGA) on Tuesday in New York, and before leaders and representative of 193 countries, the president took on North Korean President Kim Jong-un, and threatened to "totally destroy North Korea if necessary."


But Secretary of State Rex Tiller stopped short of saying he wants the nuclear deal abolished, saying, instead, that it needs to be revisited.


Tiller said the "sunset clause" of the nuclear deal, which automatically lifts most key restrictions on Iran's nuclear program by 2030, raises serious concerns.


A Democrat and the nation's first Black president whose second four-year term ended in January when Trump became president, Obama fought hard to bring the Iran Nuclear Deal to fruition, and won bipartisan support of the legislative measure that is now under deep scrutiny as Korea threatens possible military action against the U.S., a threat met with a counter-threat by President Trump, a tendentious president who rarely backs away from controversy.


“I am heartened that so many senators judged this deal on the merits, and am gratified by the strong support of lawmakers and citizens alike,” said Obama in a press release to Clevelandurbannews.com and Kathywraycolemanonlinenewsblog.com when the framework for the Iran Nuclear Deal was agreed upon in 2015, a comprehensive agreement that includes a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action


This week French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters that he firmly rejects any military solution to the North Korean crisis and warned against dismantling the nuclear agreement with Iran.


France is among the five world powers associated with the nuclear agreement that also includes the United Kingdom, Russia, China and Germany


All of the congressional Democrats from Ohio supported the deal when it passed congress in 2015, including Congresswomen Marcia L. Fudge, a Warrensville Heights Democrat whose largely black 11th congressional district includes the city of Cleveland, Marcy Kaptur , a Toledo Democrat whose 9th congressional district extends to Cleveland,  Joyce Beatty of Columbus, and Tim Ryan of Niles. And so did U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown of Cleveland, a Senate Democrat.

 

Fudge and Beatty are the only two Blacks in congress from Ohio, a pivotal state for presidential elections that Obama carried in 2008 and via his reelection in 2012.


“The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is the strongest option we have to prevent Iran from continuing its nuclear weapons program," Fudge said in 2015 when the plan was agreed upon as part of the nuclear weapons deal.
