How Much Can Cleveland's Mayor Accomplish?

[Nick Castele / ideastream]

How much can a city mayor actually do? What should be his or her priorities?

These questions are at the heart of Cleveland’s mayoral race, and they’re the focus of this episode of Reporting.

We discuss the debate between Mayor Frank Jackson and Councilman Zack Reed. We also share some perspectives on what a mayor’s job is, anyway.

Nick Castele was a senior reporter covering politics and government for Ideastream Public Media. He worked as a reporter for Ideastream from 2012-2022.
