CLEVELAND – Today, Armond Budish, Democratic candidate for Cuyahoga County Executive, received the endorsement of the Call and Post newspaper.
The Call and Post praised Budish for his commitment to economic development, saying:
“He is a fighter for the middle class and a longtime friend of the Black community. Budish is a proponent of economic development for “all” of Cleveland and not just concentrated in the downtown area. This is the kind of attitude that is music to our ears.”
Budish thanked the Call and Post for the endorsement:
“I am honored to have the support of the Call and Post, which for years has served as a strong voice for the African-American community. Cuyahoga County is strengthened by the diversity of each of our unique communities. As County Executive, I will continue to respect this. I look forward to working alongside leaders in the African-American community as we work together to create jobs and grow the economy.”
With their endorsement, the Call and Post joins a substantial group of supporters, including U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, U.S. Representatives Marcia L. Fudge and Marcy Kaptur, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed Fitzgerald, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, and more than fifty African-American pastors from the area, all of whom have endorsed Budish for County Executive.
