Issue 6 passage reshapes Cuyahoga County


On Tuesday, November 3, 2009, Cuyahoga County voters resoundingly voted in favor of government reform and a county charter form of government.  Approximately 68 percent of the voters supported the initiative, and it passed in all cities in Cuyahoga County.

At the victory celebration at The Harp, 4408 Detroit Avenue, Mayor of Parma Heights, Marty Zanotti, one of the co-chairs of the initiative, commented on the importance of the endorsement of the Hispanic Roundtable to the effort.  He observed that it came at a critical time, was one of the most important endorsements received by the campaign, and helped change the dynamics of the race.  “It was a significant part of the victory,” according to Zanotti.


State Senator Nina Turner, a co-chair, was also effusive in her recognition and praise of the Latino community for their support during the campaign.


One of the co-chairs of the effort was José C. Feliciano, Chairman of the Hispanic Roundtable.  Mr. Feliciano stated, “This is a historic moment not only for Cuyahoga County but also for the Hispanic community.  It presents a historic opportunity for all!”  Mr. Feliciano anticipates recruiting a Latino candidate for District 3, which is composed of 20 percent Latinos.


The charter form of government will elect a county-wide executive, as well as an eleven-member council.


Mr. Feliciano observed that the Latino community will be in on the ground floor helping to form that government.  The election for the county executive and the council will be September, 2010.
