  • CCPC Statement on the New Chair of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party

    For Immediate Release –

    The Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus is proud to endorse Mayor Trevor Elkins to be the next Chair of the County Democratic Party.

    Some have criticized the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus by claiming that we are trying to run the Democratic Party from the outside, by endorsing various candidates in general, and with our endorsement of Trevor Elkins in particular for the Party’s Chair. The reality is CCPC’s endorsements are like any other organization’s endorsements.

    Our endorsed candidates may choose to support candidates that we do not endorse, and we are clear that this will be the case with Mayor Elkins. That is how politics works. Another reality is that although many of CCPC’s members are not Democrats, only members who are Democratic Central Committee members will have a say in who the next Party Chair will be.

    To be clear, we understand that Mayor Elkins has a strong history as a member of the Democratic Party and is unwavering in his belief that the Democratic Party is the vehicle for progress in Cuyahoga County. We believe he agrees with our policies in general, but we also understand that he is a principled, independent individual who will not necessarily agree with us on any given issue. We understand that our role and that of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party are different, but can be complementary on areas of agreement.

    The mayor has not been involved with the recruitment or endorsement of any Progressive Caucus candidates currently running for office in Cuyahoga County because his role is to support endorsed Democratic candidates. We are supporting Mayor Elkins for Party Chair because he is a member of CCPC—along with numerous other elected Democrats—and a significant portion of our membership are members of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party.

    We believe his view of government’s role in improving the lives of everyday citizens aligns with ours. Furthermore, we appreciate Trevor Elkins’ belief that the most effective manner to grow the Democratic Party is to become more inclusive in the conversations held with the broader community, and to never restrict the democratic rights of the electorate.

    Standing 4 Kaepernick Protest - Cleveland

    What? We will be staging protests at the first game played at every NFL stadium this season. WHY? Colin Kaepernick's peaceful protest of police brutality and other racial injustices has led to him being blackballed by the NFL. NFL owners have either decided to punish Kaepernick for taking this stand OR that it's best for business to sweep these issues under the rug. Either option is UNACCEPTABLE! The issues Colin raised cannot be ignored, and the people he is fighting for will not be taken for granted. The NFL will continue to silence and punish players who speak out against oppression unless we make them pay in terms of their image, ratings, and sales. BY STANDING 4 KAEPERNICK, WE ARE STANDING FOR PLAYERS' ABILITY TO RAISE AWARENESS BY TAKING SMALL STEPS SUCH AS NOT STANDING FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM WITHOUT LOSING THEIR JOBS.

    Labor Day Rally with Jerry Springer

    UNION MEMBERS KEEP THIS COUNTRY RUNNING! America works because working people show up day in and day out to do their part to provide the critical services needed to build a stronger America. Politicians’ main responsibility is to raise the standard of living for the American people. Sadly, in states across the country, anti-worker politicians are doing the opposite. They are blocking or taking away minimum wage increases and gutting union rights. It’s no surprise that wages have gone down over the past decade. JOIN US THIS LABOR DAY AS WE STAND UP FOR UNIONS! Together with our allies, we will call on all elected leaders and candidates to publicly declare on Labor Day that they will stand with working people, raise wages, and support our right to join unions so everyday Americans have a fighting chance of getting ahead in our economy. By sticking together, we can inspire leaders across the country to organize and mobilize on an unprecedented scale to fight for the America we want to live in. America needs more unions and together, we can take back the country for working people. Hosted by Raise Up Cleveland and 4 others
