Mayor Jackson on Poverty

The Sound of Ideas

Economic growth is lagging, population declining, and poverty doesn't seem to be abating, but if you're the mayor of Cleveland, it's not all bad. Mayor Frank Jackson told us back in January, "These challenges are opportunities, that's all they are. I don't see them as negatives. I see them as the raw material for opportunity." There's plenty more raw material for opportunity coming: The American Community Survey poverty rankings are about to be released. Last year, Cleveland was number one. Not everyone agrees the rankings tell us more than that the poor in our region live in a highly concentrated area, however. Tuesday morning at nine, Mayor Jackson will tell us what he thinks they tell us and what can be done. He'll answer your questions, too, so be sure to join us for the Sound of Ideas.
