CLEVELAND - NewsChannel5’s Leon Bibb will moderate Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson’s State of the City address Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. at the City Club.
This is the first time that the mayor has used this type of format. It will be his eighth annual address.
Bibb has been meeting with the mayor for the past week in preparation. Bibb has formulated the questions for the sit-down style format.
Maureen R. Harper, the mayor’s chief of ommunications, said that if Jackson were to give a traditional speech this year, the theme would be “Institutionalizing Success.” She said he has put in motion several successful initiatives from balancing the budget to economic development to education.
Jackson wants those efforts to become instilled as a way of life, a way of doing business in the city of Cleveland – in the public sector and the private sector.
Here are the main topics Mayor Jackson would touch on if he were giving a traditional speech on the state of the city:
The event starts at 11:30 a.m. at the City Club and the address will begin at 12:30 p.m.
