PRESS RELEASE - Friday, Oct. 15, 2021 - Cleveland, OH – Former Cleveland City Council President Martin J. Sweeney endorsed Justin Bibb for mayor because of Bibb’s commitment to putting people and neighborhoods first.
“For the past ten months, Justin has shown he will listen to the concerns and ideas of residents and community stakeholders,” said Sweeney, a County Councilman representing District 3.
“I met him over a year ago on my front porch and since then I’ve watched him crisscross the city taking hundreds of questions in backyards, on front porches and in virtual forums. Justin Bibb is ready to listen and lead on Day One.”
Sweeney urged residents to ignore the political rhetoric about experience.
“Justin Bibb and his team will bring the real change we need to tackle violent crime, poverty, housing and other major quality of life issues,” Sweeney said. “It’s always been about safety and services and things have not changed. Justin is the right leader at the right time,” he added.
