Erick Walker for City Council in Ward 4 by C. Ellen Connally

October 21, 2021  |  COOL CLEVELAND

For the first time in almost 42 years, there will be no incumbent in the race for Cleveland’s Ward 4 city council seat. Voters in the Shaker Square and Buckeye neighborhoods made it clear that it was time for a change when former and now-incarcerated Councilman Kenneth Johnson received only 190 votes in the September primary. The two top voter getters, Erick Walker and Deborah A. Gray, will vie for the seat in the November 2 general election.

In the primary election I endorsed Walker. I repeat that endorsement today. As a 45-year resident of the ward, I believe that Walker, a lifelong resident of the ward, has the skills, educational background and knowledge to be an effective councilperson.

Erick Walker Pledges to Lead by Listening

For too long Ward 4 has been without a forum for having conversations about our needs and wants. Under my leadership, community meetings will be held every month on a set date and time. During COVID they will necessarily be held virtually. As soon as we are able, however, we will meet in person.

Erick Walker Announces Plan to Bridge Digital Divide

I will collaborate with my east side colleagues to bridge the digital divide by establishing free, high speed wifi. Lack of access to technology is one of the defining inequities contributing to Cleveland being among the poorest large cities in America, and if not corrected, will keep our children at a disadvantage into the future.
