This month, some of your neighbors and friends are starting new jobs--in service to the community. That's because in November, they were elected to school boards or city councils for the first time. As these political newcomers get started down a potentially treacherous path, a few of them will join host Dan Moulthrop to talk about their hopes, their plans and why they're venturing into an arena as challenging as local politics. Join the conversation Tuesday morning at 9.

Jennifer Mearns Shaker Heights Board of Education
Sean Nicklos Parma City School Board

I missed some of the program so maybe you touched on this.  I heard some of the conversation about regional sharing of services in order to cut costs, but in the wake of the county restructuring, and proposed increase in county economic development activity, I would have liked to hear your guests say more about new economic development parterships and strategies shared among the cities that make up our county and neighboring counties. I think your listeners would benefit from knowing how the new officials plan to work with the new county government and their neighbors to improve our economy.
