Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson, who is seeking reelection this fall, has been endorsed by U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge, who represents the 11th Congressional District of Ohio.
“Mayor Jackson has worked tirelessly on Cleveland’s transformation, and the results can be seen throughout the entire city,” Fudge said, before a group of supporters. “But there is more work to be done, and it is critical that he and I continue our partnership to maintain this momentum and move Cleveland to the next level.”
The announcement was made Tuesday morning, Aug. 1, at the Jackson campaign headquarters in Cleveland.
“Advancing an urban city like Cleveland is an effort that requires support and partnership from all levels of government,” Jackson said. “Congresswoman Fudge has been a great partner and a major champion of Cleveland, and she provides an important voice in Washington that produces immeasurable results.”
Fudge has served as a member of Congress since 2008. She serves on the House Committee on Agriculture and the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. She is the Ranking Member on the House Committee on Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation and Forestry. In the 114th Congress, she served as Ranking Member on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education. She is also a member of several Congressional Caucuses and a past Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus.
