UPDATE! Carol Roe Recommended for City Council Appointment

January 9th, 2015

Following last evening’s meeting, the Cleveland Heights Democrats are proud to announce our recommendation for Carol Roe to be appointed to the Cleveland Heights City Council. With 30 members voting, Carol received the necessary support (50% or more of eligible membership) to secure our club’s recommendation. Her focus on common-sense, meaningful steps to engage with community members throughout our city clearly impressed the club. Congrats Carol!

Happy New Year!

Come hear Club applicants looking to fill the seat vacated by newly elected State Representative Janine Boyd on Cleveland Heights Council.

This will be our first meeting of the new year, and you don’t want to miss it! Club applicants to replace newly elected State Representative Janine Boyd will be addressing our membership to detail their reasons for seeking this appointment to Council.
