Virtual Town Hall and Local Government Issues

In April, Rep. Skindell participated in a virtual town hall for constituents, along with colleagues state Senator Nickie J. Antonio (D-Lakewood), Bride Rose Sweeney (D-Cleveland), and Jeff Crossman (D-Parma), as well as by Cuyahoga County Board of Health Commissioner Terry Allan.

Skindell discussed the importance of funding local governments saying, “From Lakewood to Cleveland to Brook Park, all over, they are losing a significant amount of money… they pay the wages and healthcare benefits for our police officers, our firefighters, our first responders.

“We need to make sure those local communities get the funds that are needed to pay those salaries and wages.”

Skindell and all of the legislators in the Town Hall emphasized that they, and staffers, remain on the job to help with constituent questions and issues. Rep. Skindell’s office may be reached by phone or e-mail.

Recording of the Town Hall is available online.
