After a federal court decision, it's back to the drawing board for a Cleveland suburb. Last week, Judge Kathleen O'Malley sided with the U.S. Department of Justice in finding that the city's 9-member council system -- four ward seats, four at-large seats, and a council president -- hinders the black vote and is discriminatory. Euclid Mayor Bill Cervenik had urged city council to settle with the DOJ. After the decision, he said, "The City of Euclid... has to become much more aware of the diversity in [the] community. We're going need to work very hard to mend some of the hurt and the pain that was felt through this court." Hard work, indeed. You're invited to join us for a look at how Euclid will satisfy the Voting Rights Act, the court and the DOJ. It's Monday morning at nine.

Guests

Hilary Taylor, Euclid City Attorney
Ed Gudenas, President, Euclid City Council
Rose Allen, former candidate for council president
