Should East Cleveland become a neighborhood of Cleveland instead of its neighbor? Some say a merger would benefit both cities. They say it would move Cleveland closer to University Circle and add to its population while possibly solving East Cleveland's money woes. A merger would require a majority of voters from both cities. But many East Clevelanders and Clevelanders say no, thanks.
