Cleveland Mayor – Big Job

Cleveland’s newly elected mayor Frank Jackson gave his first “State of the City” address today, you can find a recap here.

…he wants Cleveland and its suburbs to stop poaching from each other.

After reading the recap, I’m note sure the mayor is focusing on the right issue. Petty differences between suburbs are the least of Cleveland’s problems. The big problem is that businesses are leaving the area all together! This is especially true for businesses in the technology sector. Just look in the classifieds of the local papers. The number of available IT jobs is pathetically low compared to other cities.
