Black leaders, activists, teachers, parents, oppose Cleveland mayor, Gov. Kasich's plan for merit pay, charter schools, Activist to run for mayor in 2013, Community divided over mayor's educational plan for teacher merit pay, charter schools

CLEVELAND, Ohio-A bold education plan proposed by Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson (pictured) and Republican Gov. John Kasich that has angered Cleveland teachers and calls for merit pay, the elimination of seniority and tenure in teacher layoffs, and for a Cleveland schools operating levy with a provision for some of the monies to be allocated for charter schools is not sitting well with Black leaders and some parents, though the Cleveland Plain Dealer Newspaper is pushing it through editorials under the guise of educational reform.

Community activists object to Plain Dealer endorsement of Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson pick of Triozzi for Cuyahoga County prosecutor, say Triozzi and McGinty are bad for Blacks but Triozzi is lesser of two evils, say neither is worth voting for

E-mail Print PDF

CLEVELAND, Ohio-The endorsement on Sun. by the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Ohio's largest newspaper, of former Cleveland law director Robert Triozzi (pictured) for Cuyahoga County prosecutor over Tim McGinty is a bad anti-Black gesture, but not as bad as had Tim McGinty been endorsed, community activists say.

"Mr. Triozzi is the lesser of the two evils but both are a detriment to the Black community and to the Democratic process," said Imperial Women Leader Kathy Wray Coleman. "Tim McGinty is a pint size man with a Napoleon complex that has a record as a former assistant county prosecutor and prior common pleas court judge of harassing Blacks and others and then losing on appeal, including the reversal of his racist and illegal orders to send Black men to prison, and Triozzi harassed and did in union members and Black women and girls as the law director under Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, including the malicious prosecution in 2010 of innocent Black teens Destini and DeAsia Bronaugh for a peaceful student organized protest at Collinwood High School over teacher layoffs and school closings."

Tina Bronaugh, the mother of the two girls, one of which malicious criminal charges were dismissed against and the other of whom took a diversion program for subsequent dismissal of the charges in fear of judicial case fixing by since ousted Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Lynn McLaughlin Murray, says Triozzi is dangerous.

"Why would Mr. Triozzi, as the then law director, usurp the role of the chief city prosecutor to bring back bogus misdemeanor charges against my innocent daughter Destini after county prosecutor Bill Mason was decent enough to dismiss all of the illegal charges lodged against my girls, charges brought by Mr. Triozzi for Mayor Jackson to get at the teachers and because they both are anti Black and anti-female," said Tina Bronaugh. "Mr. Triozzi is unfit to be a county prosecutor given his disdain of Blacks and women and his complete disregard for the law, and I would urge voters to soundly reject him at the ballot box next month."
