Dean Roland Anglin Moderates Ohio Fair Lending Forum, "Priorities and New Ideas: A Conversation with Cleveland City Council's Newly Elected Members"

Dr. Roland V. Anglin, Dean and Professor at the School of Urban Affairs, moderated an Ohio Fair Lending Coalition forum, “Priorities and New Ideas: A Conversation with Cleveland City Council's Newly Elected Members,” held on April 27, 2022. This forum focused on newly elected council members in the city of Cleveland, including Deborah Gray (Ward 4), Richard Starr (Ward 5), Stephanie Howse (Ward 7), and Kris Harsh (Ward 13). 

The newly elected officials were asked what they had learned on the campaign trail. According to the event description, much of what becomes public policy is learned on the front porches of Clevelanders who are concerned about their home and neighborhood, and campaigns are places where public policy and neighbors come together. The city of Cleveland recently had an administration change in the mayor’s office, as well as new additions and changes in leadership on Cleveland City Council. Being newly elected, these council members are part of the change and bring new ideas to their positions. This forum was a setting for them to share their ideas and priorities.

The Ohio Fair Lending Coalition is a collaboration of organizations across the state of Ohio banding together to address fair lending and banking issues. The School of Urban Affairs has been a proud partner for many years.
