WASHINGTON, D.C.-The Washington, D.C. press secretary for U.S. Rep. Marcia L. Fudge (D-OH), a Warrensville Hts Democrat whose 11th Congressional District includes Cleveland's predominantly Black east side and Black pockets of Akron, a city some 35 miles south of Cleveland, has left her post to serve as an Ohio regional campaign press spokesperson for Obama for America, President Barack Obama's reelection campaign venue.

Laura Allen (pictured) told Cleveland Urban News.Com in a telephone interview yesterday from Washington, D.C. that she will begin working for the Obama campaign beginning next week and that Fudge has not found a replacement for her yet, and she said that she does not know what regional post she will be assigned to but that she has, in fact, joined the Obama 2012 campaign.

"I start next week," said Allen, who said also that she would be relocating to Columbus, Oh. this weekend.

Editorial: Plunderbund.Com writer questions State Sen. Nina Turner , State Rep. Sandra Williams in co-sponsoring proposed legislation for Mayor Jackson's pursuit of state law for Cleveland schools education plan

E-mail Print PDF

COLUMBUS, Ohio-Plunderbund.com is an online media venue www.plunderbund.com.

(Editor's note from Cleveland Urban News.Com and The Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog.Com: This editorial is published at Plunderbund.Com in opposition to support by Ohio State  Sen. Nina Turner (D-25)(pictured), a Cleveland Democrat, and state Rep.  Sandra Williams (D-25)(pictured), head of the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus and also a Democrat, in co-sponsoring legislation last week that is  pushed by Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, who controls the city schools. Proposed through Turner in the Ohio Senate and through Williams in the Ohio House of Representatives, the mayor's proposed state law would negate  the teacher's negotiated collective bargaining agreement in order to dismantle teacher tenure and seniority in layoffs in the Cleveland Municipal School District and, among other provisions, demands merit pay for teachers . Jackson also wants to use  public monies  funneled to the majority Black school district for charter schools. The mayor backed off of a proposal for Cleveland schools CEO Eric Gordon to have authority to fire employees at low performing schools, a proposal initially offered in spite of data that show that new teachers and Black teachers will be the first fired because they are typically relegated to schools with students with learning and behavioral problems ).

(Editor's note from Cleveland Urban News.Com and The Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog.Com: The below editorial is not the opinion of Cleveland Urban News.Com or the Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog.Com and is that solely of Plunderbund.Com )

Let’s get one thing straight — I love Cleveland-area Senator Nina Turner.  I love her impassioned speeches and I still get chills as I remember listening to her fight against Senate Bill 5 last year on the Senate floor.  And her introduction of legislation to protect men from the dangers of “Viagra” was magical.

Last week Turner and Representative Sandra Williams got duped by Ohio’s education reform machine as the two were all but forced to co-sponsor legislation in their respective houses that would force significant changes on the Cleveland School district, effectively enacting Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson’s “Cleveland Plan.”  Turner and Williams were stuck having to either support the severe changes to the district or opposing the plan and being portrayed as not advocating for improvement in the struggling school district.
