CLEVELAND, OHIO –The Service Employees International Union District 1199 today released a new radio ad highlighting the multiple failures of Mayor Frank Jackson’s administration.
The ad specifically airs frustrations of Cleveland residents over a record homicide rate, the high level of poverty, neighborhood deterioration, grocery store closures, the handling of bus travel through Public Square, and the position of Cleveland officials on the minimum wage.
“Cleveland residents face deteriorating conditions in their neighborhoods, a staggering number of local residents are paid poverty wages and over half of children in Cleveland live in poverty,” said Anthony Caldwell, Director of Public Affairs for the Service Employees International Union District 1199. “Cleveland needs a leader who has the ability to successfully address these difficult issues and will work with community leaders to build a better future of our families.”
SEIU District 1199, representing nearly 30,000 members, recently endorsed Ward 10 Councilman Jeff Johnson to be the next Mayor of the City of Cleveland.
