Looking Back at 2007

heading into New Year's Eve, we'll look back at 2007 with three interviews on three issues that have stood out as perhaps the most pressing concerns facing the entire region. On top of the list may be the foreclosure crisis. With an estimated 17,000 foreclosures in Cuyahoga county and banks around the world facing write-offs totaling in the trillions, this has been the year sub-prime became a dirty word. Also on the list: violent crime. Demesha Sharpe, Asteve Thomas, Brandon Marshall, Virginia DiGorgio. The names of victims are well known and so are some of the assailants--Bobby Cutts and Asa Coon, to name just two. Amidst these challenges, civic leaders have come together under the banner of regionalism, most visibly under the Cleveland-plus campaign. Join us for a conversation about these issues from three fresh perspectives.

Guests

Mike Polensek, City of Cleveland, Ward 11, Councilman
Ed Morrison, Economic Policy Analyst, Purdue University, Center for Regional Development
Mark Seifert, Executive Director, East Side Organizing Project
