• Rep. Mike Skindell: Jeff Wise will get results

    State Representative Michael J. Skindell has served our community on Lakewood City Council, and in the Ohio House and Senate. The endorsement of someone who has been there for Lakewood, for years, is a tremendous honor. Jeff Wise will listen to residents’ concerns, and get results on city council. His experience working in the state legislature prepared him well to be highly effective on council. He will stand up for residents of Ward 3, and make a positive difference as your representative. I’m proud to endorse Jeff for Lakewood City Council, and encourage you to Vote Wise on November 5. State Representative Michael J. Skindell

A letter from longtime resident Julie Nichols in this week’s Lakewood Observer, describing a community meeting I organized and how this was empowering and encouraging, is a great confirmation of the difference we can make together.
