In August 2014 East Cleveland Ohio will not be able to make payroll for city employees, police and fire departments. Knowing the situation of his city Mayor Gary “Durango” Norton went out and purchased a nice new truck to chauffeur he and family around to recreation places around East Cleveland and Shaker Heights.
Now East Cleveland police officers are writing tickets and citing people for anything they can sending some folks to East Cleveland Municipal Court only to have Judge Dawson ferret out the truth and in some cases dismiss the cited offenses.
It’s too bad that residents of East Cleveland have gone silent on all issues from potholes to no payday for staff and that is a very bad outlook for months to come in East Cleveland. Mayor Gary “Durango” Norton is for merger with the City of Cleveland and while his eye are with Ed FitzGerald and his run for Ohio Governor.
If you do plan on riding in the Norton “Durango” make sure to bring gasoline money because the City of East Cleveland has no money but Gary has some hidden away “segregation” is alive and well here.
Something fun to do in East Cleveland for people of all ages and it comes from two stellar citizens who cut the grass and create a place to “pitch” horseshoes. Most of the young folks may have seen the game played on an electronic game but few have actually thrown or pitched a horseshoe.
Kudos to East Cleveland Ohio citizens Mr. Joe White and Mr. Roye “Coach” Kidd who have a steady date to set-up this event on Hayden Avenue near Silverman’s Store. These men are looking forward to East Cleveland people to join them and have some good outside fun.
Weather permitting – Each and every Thursday Summer 2014.
Cheers and Jeers
Kudos to East Cleveland Ohio Mayor Gary Norton for going out and buying a brand new car while city employees are being laid off or taking pay cuts.
Norton can ride in style with his gas guzzling four wheel drive Dodge Durango purchased using “Segregated” funds addressed at the recent Ohio State finance group meeting.
Clearly Gary Norton gets a big JEER for doing something so stupid that no one on the finance group or audience could believe.
NOW on the other hand we are happy to CHEER for East Cleveland City Council President Barbara Thomas for coming back to reality.
It was clear on July 23, 2014 that Thomas much like her old style was upset at the Mayor and his antics. Welcome back Barbara Thomas and hopefully she will distance herself from Gary Norton disciples Brandon King and Thomas Wheeler on the council board.
There are so many stories that are never ever seen or heard since Gary Norton video person and owner of Cable Access Channel 9, William Fambrough has gone undercover. Fambrough still gets a whopping $72 thousand dollars a years to operate the “Norton Network” on East Cleveland Cable Access Channel nine. Norton clearly does not want anyone to see what is really going on via his personal cable access channel in East Cleveland, cable channel nine. Watch us for late breaking news and videos as collected.
East Cleveland Ohio – Citizens will meet again at the East Cleveland Public Library to discuss a recall campaign directed at EC Mayor Gary Norton who has spent over the budget this year. The mayor’s overspending has made it necessary for the cash strapped city to borrow eleven million dollars to pay this year’s overdue bills.
In addition to the very large debt the city is in the streets are filled with potholes and the city is unable to find a fix. Citizens in some cases are filling in some of the larger holes with bricks or anything that will keep young children from being caught in some of the larger spots.
The five person group has been networking with Richmond Heights Ohio citizens who are also fighting to recall their mayor and hope to hear from someone in that group today.
We are looking for people willing to take to the streets and get 2,500 registered voters to sign the recall petition.
How: Citizens plan on getting 2,500 registered voters to sign for the recall

This week so far we started the week off at the RTA Board meeting early Tuesday Morning where we asked about the lack of transit police and how their flagship bus “Healthline” is totally out of control.
Next meeting same day, Tuesday was the “Barbara Thomas” in control city council meeting. It almost feels like Barbara is doing things that the audience and council in shock as the folks also notice no camera coverage on public channel nine.
However – We have covered most of this meeting on our sister YouTube.com Channel – 44112News.
Today based on several folks asking that we now attend East Cleveland School Board meeting we present this small document which should cover some of the reasons media coverage is much needed.
More from that breaking news story later today as the meetings continue or join us live at Prospect Elementary School Building, 6:30 PM July 16, 2014.
