Yesterday, Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry hosted an educational forum featuring the Cuyahoga County Executive candidates Chris Ronayne (D) and Lee Weingart (R) that focused on housing and shelter. The program was organized by the County Housing Stakeholder Group of which LMM is a member. The forum was moderated by four nonprofit leaders whom each asked questions pertaining to one of four pillars in the just-released report “A Tale of Two Markets” increasing resources for housing stability; reducing barriers to housing; strengthening fair housing, and equitably investing in the housing market. You won’t want to miss the candidates' answers on these pressing topics. Watch the recording here.
This forum was the second program hosted by LMM this month. On October 6, LMM hosted a non-partisan candidate’s forum on health, human services, and critical needs that was sponsored by a coalition of grassroots organizations focused on community engagement and equity. Topics covered included MetroHealth, the candidate’s plans for the County Jail, and ARPA funding. Watch a recording here.

On October 20 at 2pm, the First Suburbs Consortium and Cleveland Neighborhood Progress are hosting a forum with candidates for Cuyahoga County Executive at the LaSalle Theater.
