    Hi Steve and everyone! I am very interested in driving people to the polls (among helping in other ways). Is there something being organized that I can jump onto? If not, do you need help in that area? Maybe I could help set it up if I had your input and resources.

    I am with you 100%. Trump’s policies are inhumane, racist and pure evil. To incarcerate innocent young men in his “detention” camp is unacceptable.

    Hi! I thought we were supposed to have a meeting at the Berea Public Library on May 10 at 7 pm. I went there and found two other meetings taking place, while the librarians said they didn’t have a CCPC meeting scheduled. What happened?

    When I went to vote Tuesday at a school on Lansing in Slavic Village, Cleveland, I noticed a large car parked a few feet from the entrance to the polling place. Instead of a regular license plate in front it had a slightly larger plate that just said ICE. I immediately thought of Immigrations & Customs Enforcement & wonder if this was an attempt to suppress the Latino American vote or someone trying to imitate that. Have you gotten reports of similar incidents? I think this should be investigated.

    You state on your website, and on your issues page that you are (a) progressive.

    1) Nowhere is it stated that you are concerned about the most important issue, the ecology of the Earth (aka ‘the environment’). Without rapid, massive change in society to rectify the disastrous current policies (not just since JAN ’16), no social and economic issues will matter, as we will all be extinct.

    2) Since moving (within county) in FEB ’17, have not been able to get the mail ballot application sent out to the house. Called the CCBoE and someone there promised that they would send out the ballot(s). Mentioned that an application was made; they said it was no problem, two ballot sets would not be sent out. Recieved nothing by the deadline; had to vote in person on election day, which as a disabled vet with multiple issues was a hardship (hence the mail ballot request). Reported this by email to the CCDP website.

    Voter suppresion is being perpetrated.

    Hello Ohio, this is not spam! There are many many local Progressive Caucuses created in the US within the traditional Democratic Party organizational structure. I’ve created a page to build that network. I’m a DNC member from Wyoming who helped create a Progressive Caucus in our state, and am looking to link together national efforts. Please have a look. Today is day 1 for this network.

    Armond Budish and Cuyahoga County Council Members

    2079 East Ninth Street

    Cleveland, Ohio 44115


    Dear Armond Budish and Cuyahoga County Council Members,


    You make terrible decisions that waste taxpayer’s money. The unnecessary atrium to the Q shows that you are a legal and political moron. A $200 million dollar renovation of the Q for only a $100 million economic impact is stupid. The Q‘s atrium was your way to patronize Dan Gilbert your Jew friend from Detroit. Gilbert made billions on home mortgages. He also made many bad loans and paid off the corrupt politicians and Judges. Gilbert is planning to build the tallest high rise in Detroit not Cleveland. We must stop patronizing all companies not headquartered in Northeast Ohio. Spending money to do necessary renovations to the Q itself is money well spent. This money should come from a small percentage of surrounding counties liqueur taxes. The Q didn’t have an atrium when the NBA had their All Star game here in 1999. Armond, you were unable to sell the NBA on using a remolded Q without the atrium and letting them to use the 1 billion square foot new Convention Center for their NBA festivities. You have done nothing to help Cuyahoga to be considered by Amazon for their 2nd headquarters. Governor John Kasich is working very hard to have Amazon in Columbus. This would keep Kasich from going to jail for stealing over $6 billion dollars of liqueur tax revenue when he opened up his own Commence Department called “Jobs Ohio”. If I was Director of Commerce for Ohio, we wouldn’t have had to open up his new commerce department. Implementing several of my great ideas would have given Cuyahoga County and Ohio a greater chance to be Amazon’s 2nd headquarters. Every time we have a Governor that is not from Northeast Ohio we get screwed. Kasich is from Pittsburgh. Budish, you did nothing to improve Health Services in Cuyahoga County from our 65th pathetic ranking in the state. Budish, why did you refuse to meet with me and a former commissioner whose county is usually ranked #1 in Health Services? Failure to have these important meetings resulted in no improvement in our Health Service ranking. You would have also learned of all the great ideas that you could have implemented to attract Amazon and other companies to relocate here. Instead you covered up the corrupt activity of your county employees and Communist Nazi White Raciest Irish probate Judge Laura Gallagher. Since you are Jewish give your family the Communists Nazi experience. My Father and Uncle were both World War II veterans and that is why you enjoy freedom. Also, when are you going to retrieve the over $9 million dollars that Judge Antony Russo’s Brother Frank Russo and other county employees stole so that I can receive the financial damages that the county owes me? The county prosecutor’s office continues to be corrupt. .Prosecutor McGinty fixed the Brelo trial with his Irish friends so that Brelo would be found “not guilty”. Irish O’Malley is a witch hunter. The corrupt hateful Irish control the Governor, Judges, police departments and prosecutors. The Irish continue to hate us Italians/Sicilians, Blacks and other minorities. My attached letters further explain this situation and damages owed to me. The population of Cuyahoga County continues to drop even though downtown Cleveland’s population is increasing somewhat. Our young college educated children continue to relocate outside of Ohio. Because you, Armond Budish failed to do anything great for Cuyahoga County you must RESIGN!!!!!


    Sincerely,


    James M. Catalano

    NO idea HOW viable You are or long term affect, ‘future’ but You sorta have hit a nerve there of sorts. You may go way of the OCCUPY, other movements and semi historical footnote. Sure Interests will spin this puppy every which way….. rather wry irony HOW RNC among other things ‘gave’. Sour grapes? Pitchfork and tar buckets time? Surprised (them?). Shouldn’t be. EITHER tax code, other THAT out of whack or someone is very delusional &/or Polly Annish. OR all the above…


    SOMEHOW YOU have made ‘the grade’ on a wide enough platform which give You credit for that OTHERS weren’t able to do thou quite frankly THEY had issues, etc. SURE YOU will feel heat to rest of it… BE CAREFUL. BE amazed @ WHO PO n what THEY could do thou FINALLY interests WON 93% of what they sought.

    QUicken Loans Arena ‘loan’? Its ALL of it. SEMI suprising considering NBA ‘16 Cavs FINALS win. ANTI one % wealthy Yuppie vote. Culture crud conflict condundrum to rest of it. SURREAL how DJT able to parlay that. IF can figure THAT out got a winner there. NEO blew WHAT on MED MART/CCC/D.Cleveland Hilton which NOW like this barely mentioned pseudo white elephant, ’tarbaby’ orphan in so many senses of the word… COULD have DONE A LOT of stuff, incremental rehab but instead let it all get to point this ‘dire,urgent’ project that took on life of own…. Whatever validity had by time DIMORA FCI 560275-61 and rest got done it helped take the system DOWN…or sure changed it in a free for all scramble for the tarnished, dented ‘Crown’ in the gutter moment there…. Yeah ed n meds along w/rest of it is the FUTURE and, yes, folks could have planned before or just realize changes, ‘adopt’ but somehow all that got lost on folks…. DO have to wonder WHO the advisers are in all this as were. IF want trickle down economics THIS is perfect case… well if a GOOD looking gal (guy) ‘willing to do X’ then yahoo baby and earn big $ that pays the bills, earn the education. LIMITS to that dynamics. DOES have feel of a walled off city cant relate too n wont get much out of …. take that back. IF on the edge, tired of battling old house, etc. YUPPIE chasers and THIER $ enables a buy out and escape from all that so a win of sorts. Get some $, peace, calm.


    CMSD? GALS least MORE able to ride New Economy. More geared towards them w/whatever ‘fallout’ that entails as all THAT spins out… STARK ENTERPRISES and rest of that? THINK run its course. HOW many satellite expat IT, ed n meds campus/offices of “Name” firms can one have FINALLY doing what work for WHO? ONE thing some old, small historic tax cred old office buildings. NOT new mega huge structures. Put it THIS way… look up articles concerning CHINA’s EMPTY MANHATTAN SKYLINE circa March 2016. STILL see HOW many for rent, for sale signs across NE OHIO even in hot areas. STARK couldnt get a freaking 2 story garage up in WAREHOUSE DISTRICT yet offers this 51 story monstrosity on East 6th? OVERPRICED. INSANE. FAIR chance all this stuff turns into NEXT! ASSININE AMERITRUST ABOMINATION. MAYBE I am assuming worst case scenario but I just don’t see it….


    Got PD/ADVANCE Media The Opinion forum Sep.2015 panel on like WKYC 3 or one of those saying CUYAHOGA COUNTY semi broke, had to dip into rainy day fund in ‘15 to cover employee med costs cuz underfunded the fund &/or miscalculated premiums, etc. and YET talk of funding this n that or micro lending? FINALLY @ end of day HOW MUCHDEAD CONCRETE” does one want to build or keep ’afloat’? IWA to rest? ONE thing bridge rehab. Yeah OTHER states have OWN unions or fighting unions and yeah pension obligations but FINALLY ‘reality’ hits. CITY shot bolt w/west 78th rehabbed underground pass going to Edgewater Pk….


    DONT get tooo excited. WE ARE NOT a Euro socialist country or background by ANY STRETCH. DESPITE all the blank that has gone down. HAD wins like SOCIAL SECURITY, PBGC, VA, MEDICARE, etc. but lot of folks still peeved @ caddy welfare moms to all the rest of it. NOT gonna change THAT lexicon any time soon if ever. LOOK @ 2010 CUYAHOGA COUNTY election. ELLISON the eco green architect got what 2 % of the vote? ED Fitzgerald semi screwed up but again FEW or NO DEMS can win state wide vote… SHERROD is almost a outlier on that score…. EVEN when DEMS/programs successful SOMEHOW doesn’t translate. I THINK its still the machismo thing meets ‘private shame thing’. LOT of toxic swirled together ‘chemistry’ here. OR people feel have to contain more rabid, wild haired aspects of socialism or WORSE. SOME stuff just don’t fool with. AS in a circa 2008 OHIO HSR Strickland gig which certainly did NOT help Him win…. LOOK @ AMTRACK. Heck. OUR own RTA. Ok so RED LINE was ANOTHER pseudo statement bizarre PR BI CENTENNIAL self gift there. FOREST CITY summed it up w/THIER FINAL big time sell off. or utilizing CSU UST 611 study far as their bargain basement scarfing of SCRANTON PENINSULA and ONE of ideas floated was ’GRAFFITI PARK". K&D had HOW much trouble w/STONEBRIDGE II? Settled out of CH finally @ what $10 MILLION and handed over 11 units to a lawyer/claimnant syndicate?


    Far as this threadline? BERNIE SANDERS? Didn’t find out in ’16. MAY never find out. Tales a 1933 or ’80 or ’82 or a 2008 to change the mood, lexicon. yeah private gray money and all that aka PACS….


    AND they wonder WHY 333 agents ran thru city checking up on it all and hauled a U haul big stake truck sized TRUCKLOAD of records away? SOME got the idea, caught religion. OR lot more careful. THINK port authority. THEY help find, issue bond issues BUT cleaned up house there.


    DICK PACE and CUMBERLAND far as Neuvo or E.9th voinivich pk stuff? MAYBE last gig there…. HOW many GBLT IT SM savvy whatever types running around DESPITE insane COASTAL housing costs? WHAT? THINK El Nino, rest of it will wipe all that out? APPARENTLY message lost on FCE or whoever is gonna build that insane high tech $10 billion gig out on that ADHD closed insanity asylum whose Name I forget there…


    MAYBE future is crowdfunding meets Freakonomics meets rest of it but to OUR crew it just comes across as a threadbare cheap salve among other things….


    2017 elections. OR ’18? Yeah I can see WHY think can win or win big enough… still a long shot. ONE thing a issue. PAST LEVIES as in 1996 new CMSD vote win? PS1 viewed as babysitter, food bank, entertainment as well as teach 3 Rs.


    BURBS? NOT gonna win that war tooo well either…is what it is.


    LANDBANKS? Well. WHAT else gonna do? SERIOUSLY…. JEFF JOHNSON and His take on housing, etc. EVEN if true? STILL very old, need big time ENOUGH $ to rehab, RACE thing and whole slew of other stuff. ARE jewels. BUT ONLY so many up to that task, $ input.


    PS1? TIME for 2 track. Lets face it. Certain % just NOT up to regular classroom stuff. IS value to a ECOT or trade school or SOMETHING… if future is uber dog delivery services or whatever so be it….


    I THINK folks FRIED, tired of the CHRIS ROYANANES peddling insane man made bird island WATCHER ‘building’ as Yuppie econ engines or other such dreck. OR stalking out DONNA BRADY…. all this bizarre crap which is a tome in itself. EVEN if system schizoid, semi self serving, CYA still insane… I CAN see WHY ‘natives’ get upset…


    WANT honest truth? THINK indirectly semi servicing ‘defense’ via R&D to Byte Grid to other…. CONSIDERING some of the mentors @ CMU in Pittsburgh and THIER robotics research… SAUDI have KAUST… we have ATHERYSIS? Ok maybe Cleve. Bio Labs closer to mark. TO average slobs who do 1111 different occupations @ 111K firms, other all this feels like some esoteric blank….

    how about getting an education and working a couple of jobs like I did when I was growing up. Thanks for killing progress. all the jobs

    this project would have created. Having a first class facility, that collects taxes, that helps your garbage people. Thanks for losing the NBA all star

    I want to start a petition drive to to have Armond Budish and any Cuyahoga County Council member who voted for the Q expansion plan removed from their positions. The Q needs to be maintained and improved but not the elaborate glass enclosure that will do nothing for fan experience inside the Q. This is another waste of taxpayer money. Just go the the 1 million square foot Medical Mart that is being used for yoga classes and no new conventions. Our political leaders must be held accountable for their spending of our tax dollars intelligently. James M. Catalano

    Dear Armond Budish and Cuyahoga County Council Members,


    I have been attempting to meet with you, Thomas Pristow and anyone else at the Cuyahoga County that wants to be present for this meeting. Council member, Yvonne Conwell who heads up the Health and Human Services committee for Cuyahoga County has called me back about our meeting. However since she last left me a message my cell number which 216-406-3585I am not able to connect with any Cuyahoga County employee. This is another problem that you need to fix ASAP. My family was one of the first Sicilians to migrate to Cuyahoga County over 100 years ago. Over 100 relatives were born and lived in Cuyahoga County. Both, my Father, Michael Catalano and his brother, Anthony were World War 2 veterans. We have been Cuyahoga County taxpayers and residences for over 100 years.


    For our meeting I invited several guest to help educate you and your uneducated unprofessional employees at the county of corruption. James Mueller wants to attend. He is an elected official. He served as an Ohio State Representative, former Geauga County Commissioner and is currently Trustee for Russell Township. Russell was recently named Ohio Safest City. Mr. Mueller is extremely intelligent as he is also a Chemical Engineer and President of his own firm, PolyScience. I have several geriatric nurses and personal friends familiar with want happened to me and my Mother in Cuyahoga County. I also have a female who was actual “Kidnapped” and will help educate everyone at the County what actually is kidnapping. Geauga County is the #1 county in Ohio for Health Services and Cuyahoga County is a pathetic 65th. I have spoken with several professionals who worked for Broward County. And they will tell you that what you did to me and my Mother in Cuyahoga County would have never happened in Broward and Geauga County. Corrupt Cuyahoga County Probate Judge Laura Gallagher never had any hearings, changed my parents will, never allowed us legal representation and changed and tampered with police reports. Corrupt Irish Judge Gallagher “Illegally Incarcerated” my poor defenseless Mother. Gallagher also used Cuyahoga County Sherriff deputies and Euclid Police officers to assault/attack me and my Mother. She needs to be removed from the bench and lose her law license. Also why did Cuyahoga County Probate Judge Anthony Russo write a 6 million dollar check to the Tamir Rice family? These damages owed to the Rice family were on the City of Cleveland’s tab not Cuyahoga County’s. When Judge Gallagher removed my Mother from my luxury Lakefront Penthouse apartment all of my Mother’s expenses are now owed to me by Cuyahoga County. I have filed grievances with the Ohio Supreme Court about our corrupt legal system that is controlled by the hateful Irish. I am also planning to meet with all elected officials regarding this situation.


    Fix all these problems or for the good of Cuyahoga County just RESIGN and let have a leader with problem solving skills that you lack.


    Sincerely,

    Hey there! I’m a fellow Trump resistor from Virignia. I’ve been studying the AHCA pretty closely, and there’s a serious, little-known loophole. I’m trying to spread the word about it. The ACA prohibits insurers from imposing annual or lifetime caps on benefits under Sec. 2711, but this protection only applies to “essential” benefits. If the state were to opt out of the 10 essential benefits under the MacArthur amendment, this prohibition would become null, and insurers could again impose coverage caps. This would leave people exposed to bankruptcy risk from catastrophic illnesses, whether with marketplace non-group insurance or employer-sponsored group insurance. This is a fatal flaw. I hope this info is useful to you. Please spread the word!

    Let me know what I can do to help to prevent the Q arena upgrades. Heres the letter i wrote to Councilman Kelley:


    The Honorable Kevin Kelley


    I never supported the usage of public funds for the Q Loans upgrades. I am disappointed by the end result but not surprised.


    Even someone who has used the Q Loans I don’t see an added benefit in the renovations. I also anticipate ticket prices will rise astronomically just as the team will have peaked. I will not pay these prices. In fact, I have stopped going to the Q Arena because prices have already gotten too expensive.


    Unfortunately, I am not optimistic that leaders can learn from their mistakes of continued borrowing for financing stadiums and other corporate interests. I fear that many leaders will experience individual benefits of supporting corporate interests that outweighs their individual morality.


    Ultimately, it is my generation that will pay for the deficit run up and borrowed Chinese money to pay for such false investments such as these. A sports team is and will always be a psych asset to a city and never anything more.


    I fear it will take a very bad depression or recession that affects Cleveland very severely before people understand how badly politics have failed them.


    I understand the challenge of meeting city interests in the middle for the fear of losing the team but city leaders need to understand the extreme bubble our economy is in. Every single dollar used for corporate interests will weigh heavily on the future of our city. When policies are driven by ideology and corporate interests we all lose.


    The Browns will be asking for money next if they ever turn that excuse of a team around. What say you then, if you happen to be still in office?


    I guess I’ll take my large salary and move out of cuyahoga county.
