Mayor Frank Jackson to give inaugural State of the City Address to The City Club of Cleveland


Cleveland Mayor Frank L. Jackson will give his inaugural State of the City address at noon on Thursday, February 23, 2006, to The City Club of Cleveland. The Friday Forum will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 777 St. Clair Avenue, Cleveland.


A native Clevelander, Jackson attended public schools, earned his associates degree at Cuyahoga Community College, and earned his bachelors, masters, and law degrees at Cleveland State University. He was elected to the Cleveland City Council in 1989 to represent Ward 5 and also served as chair of the Community and Economic Development Committee during the White administration.


In 2002, Jackson was elected by the 21-member City Council to serve as City Council president. In November 2005, he was elected to serve as Cleveland’s 56th mayor.


“These State of the City addresses are not only a wonderful City Club tradition, they are an important part of our civic dialogue,” said Jim Foster, executive director of The City Club of Cleveland. “There seems to be more interest in Mayor Jackson’s address than we have ever seen for a State of the City.”


This Forum, which is sponsored by AT&T. is sold out, but will be broadcast live on WKYC-TV3. The program begins promptly at 12:22 p.m.


Established in 1912 to encourage new ideas and a free exchange of thought, The City Club of Cleveland is the oldest continuous free speech forum in the country, renowned for its tradition of debate and discussion. The City Club’s mission is to inform, educate and inspire citizens by presenting significant ideas and providing opportunities for dialogue in a collegial setting.
