Experienced public servant Dale Miller endorses new vision for Cleveland
County Councilman Dale Miller has been in local public office for over 40 years, he served first on Cleveland City Council, then as a State Representative and State Senator and now as Cuyahoga County Councilman for District 2.
“I’m endorsing Justin Bibb because I know that he is active and involved in the community, not somebody that has come out of nowhere,” Miller said.
“He has a broad base of experience connected to all three major sectors that keep our city running — government, business and the nonprofit sector. Justin Bibb exemplifies the kind of sensible, reasonable, cross-sector leadership this city and region needs to move forward. It’s time for a new vision for Cleveland and the region,” Miller added.
“I’m grateful to receive the endorsement of county Councilman Dale Miller, he understands what makes Northeast Ohio tick. As mayor, I’m looking forward to collaborating with county leadership to better serve our communities,” Bibb said.
“Councilman Miller has put his faith in me because I have been on the frontlines as a community organizer and actively engaged in boardrooms as a civic leader and business person for the past decade. This might be the first time I’m running for office, but I’m not new to government or Cleveland politics,” Bibb added.
Justin Bibb was raised on the southeast side of the city by his mom, a social worker, and his dad, who served as both a police officer and firefighter. President Obama gave him his start in politics as a Senate intern. Bibb later joined Cuyahoga County as the youngest member of the executive’s cabinet and served as special assistant on economic development and education policy. He later earned law and business degrees at Case Western Reserve University and served as vice president at Cleveland’s KeyBank. He currently advises mayors and city leaders across the country on how to use data and technology in projects to improve cities. As mayor, he’ll invest in all neighborhoods, reform policing, address violent crime and ensure high-quality education for our children.
