A New Litter Reduction Campaign

I have been working the last few weeks with Pastor Doug Horner on the near west side to start the beginnings of a small piolet program aimed at increasing awareness about litter’s negative effects on the community—and to promote more recycling and anti-littering habits and mindsets.

Such can encourage [...]


In an effort to help promote less tossing of cigarette butts onto the ground on Euclid, our showcase downtown avenue, I have promoted the re-use/recycling of old ash cans that used to be used at the Galleria, in collaboration with a couple partners employed at the Galleria. Thanks to their help with this idea, it [...]

Cleveland A Great Lakes Cruise Destination? Why Not?

I have recently contacted The Port of Cleveland, The Visitors Bureau and the Great Lakes Cruise Company to get all these groups to entertain the idea of making Cleveland a stop on one of their cruises. The itineraries are fantastic, but surprisingly there is not a Cleveland stop. Maybe if more advocates wrote in support [...]
