This election isn't about Mayor Ursu. He is long gone from office and he's not coming back. This is not even so much about Dave Roche, though I understand he is an unknown quantity. This is about Mayor Headen and her inability to stabilize the city government and run it effectively. This is not just a personality issue, though that has something to do with it. It is not just an inexperience issue, though that also has something to do with it.
This has more to do about the Mayor's insistence that her way of governing is better in spite of every indication to the contrary. If someone doesn't agree with her or back her on every idea she has, or every inflated claim she makes, she fires them. When a 1.6 Million dollar company comes to her and asks for a tax incentive to stay in Richmond Heights, she doesn't even bother to bring it to council, she just says sayonara and loses more than $30K per year in revenue. This has to do with her exposing the city to hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and damages for lawsuits brought about by her reckless firings.
We are a small city, struggling to get back on our feet after years of low revenues. We finally get a tax increase passed and this Mayor is wasting every extra dollar we gained to fight legal battles she started.
It's time for Richmond Heights residents to step up and retake control of our city's government. If Dave Roche gets into office and fails to serve in the best interests of our City, then guess what? We'll recall him too. I have met the man and I don't expect that to happen, but we citizens of Richmond Heights have been awakened... and we are PISSED.
On September 23rd... Vote NO -- Mayor Headen must GO!
Wildwood and Euclid Beach park at sunset. Really cool.....restful, meditative. Thank you Cleveland MetroParks.
Keep them around! Don't listen to Lee Hawkins! Bedbugs are the future!
If you want to admit it or not, there is a cultural issue here. There is a consistency with lack of manners coming from their children, lack of respect towards women and in your face disregard of rules and laws. These are facts. In Westlake we see this every day. It is time to say something and stand up to the bad behavior. It is time to throw PC out the window.
Their arrogance and clear disregard for rules and manners is my problem.
How do you know if they are plotting over there... anyone hanging out at big groups on certain days,sounds like they are getting together for a reason.
Love Cleveland food. Is anyone up to these food challenges.
Today is 9/13/2014 What is going on NOW at the site? Why hasn't anyone stepped up and gone after the facts and brought this to the forefront of this cities news? Wonder if people have been threatened to keep quiet? I can assume some have been paid off because this sounds ridiculous to me. All people care about is the bottom line...big companies...politicians...employees...! Those truck drivers knew what they were hauling and dumping on Ford Road. What a world we live in and it doesn't appear to be getting any better. Shame to all of it!!!
Thanks for warning us that you have bedbugs! I sure hope you get rid of them.
He had a pitchfork? You should have just shot him and put him out of or misery, you people can shoot the shit out of the innocent at a moments notice but put down a monster?Time to follow too much protocol!
How long will we have to hear about this escape? Fox-8 extended their nooze by an extra half hour, just to deal with this noise and the trembling people of Chardon Me, whose little scared chilluns actually got a school day off over an event 200 miles away.
Hey, folks, it's over...he's caught. You nooze hounds can go on to other stories now and you folks in Hicksville can come in off your porches and put your shotguns back in the closet.
Will we have to bleed yet another Chardon story dry for another two weeks? Seriously? Jesus Christ. Enough.

Madeline, can I have a hit off that doobie you're smoking? TWI is not a good idea.
Was that a typo in one of the earlier posts? If not, I love it...NeighBOORS. That's EXACTLY what they are.
Ever live by a problem park? Across from a halfway house? With yells and screams from the all-night smokers? Or where little thugs and thugettes used the slide and the swings as bongo drums and steel drums? I've dealt with both kinds of parks. The latter park was called Darky Park for a reason. The city...not Cleveland, not in Ohio...was forced to rip out the equipment and re-do the whole shebang, at taxpayer expense.
Until the ordinance is changed, the park closes at NINE. Not 11 or 2. Deal with it. This is not Manhattan or Brooklyn. Get the law changed or get the fuck off the street.

I hope he gets it in the ASS a lot!!! For a person at age 17, 19, or whatever age to act so reprehensibly, with such disregard for human life,and then wear "Killer" on his t-shirt! He deserves whatever he gets, and then some!
7 Floors of Hell was by far the worst haunted house I have ever been to!!! It was a complete waste of time and money!!!
Cleveland Scene is going to it throw my ass off here soon.....I am a Judge Judy/Old Hippie Chick/Bitch Lawyer From Hell.
I am on Pinterest and Twitter. I will TRY and stop tarding up the only decent paper this town has left.....BUT I AM PISSED!
Anyone see the movie where the newspaper man yells "I am mad as hell and I can't take it anymore"? 1970-ish? It is a subversive act to report the TRUTH. I ♥ Reporters and so did Superman.
ROThornhill: Actually, I DID read the article first, which is the reason for my comment. I suspect it would be obvious to most people that the strong insinuation by the NYT article is that an equal resident race to police race ratio would help to keep the peace in a community as well as reduce incidents of crime. And I would still like a credible and definitive answer to my original question. After all, that's what all of the belligerent and unlawful activists in Ferguson, MO have been implying since the Michael Brown incident.
Meet me on twitter and let's THROW A COOKIE SALE!
I not angry...I am Mrs. Magoo here. LOLOL.
