  • Plain Dealer: Cuyahoga County Reform Proposal Stalled. So everyone pretty much agrees that the local government situation here in Cleveland is broken, but nobody, and I mean nobody is willing to give up anything to fix it. In this one short article we get to see how “black leaders”, folks upset with certain “political advisers”, a “millionaire businessman”, the County Prosecutor, “business leaders”, “labor unions”, “Democrats — who hold nearly all countywide offices”,  and “high-profile Republicans” are all out to get their say in how this reform plan is implemented. I’m pretty sure that list includes pretty much every power broker in town. If I didn’t know better, I’d say it looks like Bill Mason is just trying to bring so many competing interests to the table, that no possible reform plan could ever be developed.
