Two Plain Dealer online pieces (also both in the print version) today discuss the race for Cuyahoga County Executive. I’m quoted in this one and this link takes you to a rundown of 20 individuals whose names, the PD reporters say, come up the most often in conversation about the position.
Observations: 17 men, three women. Two people of color (one male, one female).
That cannot, cannot, cannot be the sum total of what 1.3 million people have to offer up as possible leaders.
Wait. Let me restate that:
That must not, must not, must not be the sum total of what 1.3 million people have to offer up as possible leaders.
Last word: Do not be fooled by Martin Zanotti, who claims that the “what” of the transition to the new structure is more important right now than the “who.” It was the “who” in the old structure that, allegedly, is what compelled people to put Issue 6 over the top to create a new “what.” If not “right now,” then when, exactly?
I really get the feeling sometimes that politicians in NE Ohio, if not in general, have real phobias about planning in advance, or at least defining what “planning” and “advance” mean, in regard to nearly everything.
