Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson endorses Nina Turner for 11th District Congressional election
Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson on Wednesday endorsed former State Senator Nina Turner’s bid to replace Rep. Marcia Fudge in Congress, citing her experience in office and her commitment to work to help all people.
Jackson told cleveland.com and The Plain Dealer that he views Turner as best equipped of the candidates for Fudge’s open 11th Congressional District seat to fight for those who need help because of her tenacity.
“She has a life experience of championing the cause of the people,” Jackson said in an interview Tuesday. “I’ve found her to be someone who doesn’t just talk about things. She does things.”
Turner understands that with economic growth, there must be efforts to address disparities caused by poverty and race – so that all parts of society share in prosperity, he said.
“We’re talking about the American dream,” Jackson said. “We have to have an equitable outcome for everyone.”
Jackson has known Turner for decades, beginning when he was a member of City Council and she was a legislative liaison for then-Mayor Michael R. White.
Turner was elected to City Council in 2005, the year Jackson was elected mayor. She moved to the Ohio Senate in 2008, serving until 2014, when she ran unsuccessfully for secretary of state.
