“He’s a guy who cares about the residents and stakeholders of the Second District,” said Bob Shores, co-chair of the Second District Community Relations Committee. “We will likely go back to the days where the commander stays insulated from the community.

“Sulzer would never walk away from this position unless he was being pressured to do so. I think the mayor, the director of public safety and the chief of police have done him a real dishonor.”

Kiddy Park on toxic waste dump

Last summer at the dog park in Clark Field rumors circulated about soil samples having been taken by the City of Cleveland health department.

I have  repeatedly shown here unfair and abusive practices with tax liens sales, not only in Cuyahoga County , but across the country.

My  many years of research was picked up by the Washington Post and most recently by the NAACP Legal Defense whose attorney recently traveled here from Washington, DC to meet with me and others who have assisted me with stopping the fraud, particulary among property owners of color.
