SNOW & COLD WEATHER NOT A DETERRENT TO CALL FOR “INVESTIGATE CITY HALL” FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL

NEITHER RAIN NOR SNOW NOR BLIZZARDS CAN PREVENT THE CALL FOR “INVESTIGATE CITY HALL” FOR THE SENSELESS AND ILLEGITIMATE DESTRUCTION OF HISTORIC JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL IN CLEVELAND, OHIO!

Photographed during the snowfall and cold winds (felt like minus 20 deg. F) of Wednesday, February 27, 2014 adjoining Jefferson Park between West 133rd and 133rd Streets, south of Lorain Avenue.

Drivers continue to honk and wave as they pass by our red, blue, and white – very conspicuous signs – recognized all over Cleveland and beyond.

INVESTIGATE CITY HALL  for the senseless and illegitimate destruction in 2012/2013 of historic John Marshall High School (opened in 1932) -- an architectural gem.

The destruction was a crime against humanity that shall never be forgotten.

The destruction was brought about by vote rigging & other irregularities committed by corrupt politicians (Mayor Frank Jackson & Councilman and then Council President Martin J. Sweeney) & a visionless & corrupt Cleveland Metropolitan School District -- and their multitude of cronies.

Other irregularities included: collusive inaction, and denial of due process to over 2,400 petitioners who wanted to renovate 81-year old John Marshall High School – similar to the renovation of 84-year old John Hay (built in 1929) and 81-year old Rhodes (built in 1932) High Schools – all designed by George M. Hopkinson – the British-born architect.      

May the names of the following who facilitated the senseless destruction – forever live in infamy:

Mayor Frank G. Jackson;
Councilman and former City Council President Martin J. Sweeney;
Councilman Anthony Brancatelli;  
Councilwoman Phyllis E. Cleveland;
Cleveland Metropolitan School District;
Chair, Cleveland Landmarks Commission;
Manager of Architecture (Chief Architect), City of Cleveland;
Director of City Planning;
Bellaire Puritas Development Corporation; and
President and those trustees of the John Marshall High Alumni Association who openly advocated for demolition.
