Hey look! Transparency!

The Cleveland City Council communications team has announced that council president Kevin Kelley will be holding a question-and-answer session with the press Monday morning, one day before a committee hearing where the proposed Quicken Loans Arena renovation deal will be discussed.

Kelley will give remarks on the proposed deal, and on the proposed 2017 operating budget, and will then open the floor to questions from the media on any topic.

The session is being positioned as the first in a series. Kelley will soon begin holding these press sessions one hour before every City Council meeting Monday evenings.

"Members of the media are welcome to raise any issue," said a press release.
