Heights Observer's first local election issue

FutureHeights, the nonprofit that publishes the Heights Observer, mailed a questionnaire to each candidate running for the local offices of University Heights Mayor, University Heights City Council, Cleveland Heights-University Heights School Board and Cleveland Heights City Council. The following eight pages contain the candidates’ answers to two questions, one from the FutureHeights questionnaire and one from a questionnaire of the candidate’s choice. Candidates were limited to 200 words and all photos were provided by the candidates.
