Justin Bibb receives endorsement ahead of primary election in fastest growing ward in the city
Ward 3 City Councilman Kerry McCormack endorsed Justin Bibb for Mayor of Cleveland today ahead of the primary election next week. McCormack has known Bibb for years and shares many of the same priorities from transforming management at the West Side Market to breaking Cleveland Public Power’s 50-year contract with American Municipal Power.
“I have known Justin for nearly a decade and seen his dedication to Cleveland as an active civic leader fighting for affordable public transit, criminal justice reform and high-quality public education. Justin Bibb is a forward-thinking leader and I’m proud to give him my endorsement and full support,” said McCormack.
“Our city is at a defining moment. We can drive Cleveland in reverse, stay in neutral or begin to move forward. I believe Justin Bibb is the mayor to lead us into the future,” said McCormack in his official endorsement.
“Residents are tired of waiting on City Hall. We need a mayor who will lead with urgency, question the way things have been done in the past and push us forward into the future and Justin Bibb is that leader,” he added.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Councilman McCormack. We have developed a strong relationship over the years and I look forward to working with him and City Council,” said Bibb.
“Councilman McCormack has been outspoken on Cleveland Public Power and fighting for cheaper bills, reliable service and cleaner power. I look forward to creating a culture inside City Hall that embraces his innovative ideas to address these longstanding issues,” Bibb said.
“This is such a major, positive endorsement. With your votes, Kerry and I can do the hard work to bring you safe and strong neighborhoods, better law enforcement, equal justice, excellent public schools, and high paying jobs to every part of our city. Our moment has arrived. Vote for change on September 14. We'll be grateful for your support, and we'll use it to deliver real change and fast-paced progress that Cleveland wants and needs."
