Hiawatha Brown seeks 1st District seat on Council

As a lifelong resident of Cleveland, Hiawatha Brown is announcing her candicacy for City Council District 1 seat.

“I feel that my community service background along with my education and work experience qualify me for this challenging position as Councilwoman for District 1,” Brown said.

A Bradley Central High School graduate, she hold a masters of art in teaching with emphasis on special education.

“I have served as a special education teacher at Bradley for the past eight years,” she said.
While admittedly, I am not a politician, but rather a facilitator of change. District 1 has seen improvement in the past years; however, not at the rate necessary to keep up with the changing economy and the dynamics of the city. District 1 has been underrepresented when it comes to the needs of all communities within its district, and during the last election, voter turnout was the lowest of all five districts,” she said.

“As councilwoman, I will work to improve voter registration and voter turnout for elections. I will be transparent to the citizens of the district and keep the lines of communication open. My focus will be on the rebirth of District 1 and the revitalization of downtown area. I will work diligently with other members of the Council to carry out the projects that have been proposed thru the 2016 City of Cleveland Citizen Community Survey.

"If elected, I will be the voice for the residents of District 1," she said.
