The Neo Liberal City - Cleveland, Ohio

Submitted by Randino on Thu, 01/05/2017 - 20:05.

 

           January 2017        Author’s Note:     The Neo-Liberal City was an act of dissent that was clandestinely distributed in the early 1990s as what we called Urban Samizdat – after the clandestine critical writings of the old Soviet Union.  It was clandestine because the author and the co-conspirators in the project worked in city government or other venues that would not have received the message of The Neo-Liberal City very kindly.  It was during the administration of Mayor Michael R. White who was notorious for firing people on the whim.  So, discretion was called for. The details described may date it, but the basic bones of what it describes are still the ruling realities of Cleveland. 

Randy Cunningham aka Vincent aka Randino

 

           This essay is the second of two that were inspired by the recent article in Cleveland magazine, concerning the impact on Cleveland’s neighborhoods of Neighborhood Progress Inc., the non-profit funding institution that has revolutionized the world of non-profit development corporations.  The title of this essay is the Neo Liberal City.  It attempts to move from a focus on NPI, to a broader focus on how Cleveland has and is being reorganized since the end of the Kucinich administration and the resulting consolidation of private power during the Voinovich and White administrations. This essay is not intended to be an academic essay, a policy analysis, or a muckraking exercise.  It is an unabashed polemic.  It seeks to develop broad themes and ideas about where Cleveland is at today, and where it is going.  Since a polemic is a call to action, it attempts to begin the development of an alternative politics of activism to combat what the author feels is an insidious, anti-democratic and unjust new order in our city.

Property tax exempt "hospitals" run by E.D.E.N. have cost Cuyahoga County millions in lost revenue

The Emerald Development Economic Network, which "helps" the poor by helping themselves to $25 million in federal funds per year, has also been cashing in for over 20 years by paying ZERO property taxes on their vast real estate holdings, which ALL house Section 8 tenants, by fraudulently classifying them as "private hospitals." Their lastest "hospital" venture is building obscenely expensive homeless shelters that house active drug users at the cost of $180,000 per 350 square foot unit. Each of these "hospitals" has between 60 and 80 units.
