I agree that it'd be ideal to have the next mayor be from outside of Cleveland politics. That's why I'm so unimpressed with our current lineup. However I'm really not sold by Madalone at all, and I'm still a little unclear as to why people on here seem to be preferring him over any of the other "outsider" choices. Why would he be preferable to Chrostowski, whose business at least has a solid social mission and who has done more for the community than Madalone has (as far as I know)?

Someone with the last name Lanci has endorsed Madalone - per his website.

I like his immigration, urban and transportation policies as they get away from fear factor (or shakedown factor, ala Johnson) and are more embracing of new approaches. Supporting more aggressive pro-immigrant policies, urging more no-strings-attached development in the neighborhoods, making public transit and biking more of a priority, and establishing a city department of transportation are all progressive policies I like from Tony Mad.

I'm not as familiar with Cleveland politics as probably many of you are, but does an outsider like this really stand a chance in hell?

Saw this on Cleveland.com today.

Another candidate enters the race for Mayor of Cleveland.

Former Cleveland mayoral candidate Robert Kilo enters 2017 race


In 2009 Robert Kilo challenged Mayor Frank Jackson, finishing third in the primary behind Jackson and current state Rep. Bill Patmon, a Cleveland Democrat. Kilo is circulating petitions as a candidate for mayor. (Chuck Crow, The Plain Dealer)

I suppose the "Frank Jackson Alternative Urban Transportation Center" is now going to include a firing range.....

Look at all of the people living and working outside of Cleveland influencing Cleveland politics and favoring Jackson.

If Jackson is trying to make Cleveland a city of choice but his biggest benefactors chose not to live or work in Cleveland, doesn't that send an unintended message?

Moreover, Fideli's business is in Independence.

He supposedly had a grandson playing football for Maple Heights last season (I saw him at the Willoughby game) so apparently either his son or daughter chose not to live there either.
