'Top 10' reasons to support Cuda for CH City Council
10. Tony Cuda led the successful campaign in 2019 to change Cleveland Heights’ charter to an elected mayor form of government.
9. Tony is laser-focused on housing issues and will collaborate with the mayor, his fellow council members, and the community on a strategic plan to protect and expand our housing stock.
8. Tony’s experience teaching and working in government will be invaluable during this critical transition period.
7. Tony and his wife, Sandy, live on Fenley Road in the Oxford/Noble neighborhood. Council would certainly benefit from the perspective of another member who lives north of Mayfield Road (where, currently, only one council member lives).

5. Tony has regularly attended council meetings for the past four years.
4. Tony is a strong supporter of the arts, and is himself an accomplished composer, bass player and bandleader.
3. Tony is a team player who appreciates diverse views and easily builds relationships. Tony can also stand up and be independent when the time is right.
2. Tony will be a strong voice for developing the Noble, Taylor, and Severance commercial districts.
1. Tony has the ideas and vision, and a strong work ethic. Tony will bring a fresh perspective to Cleveland Heights City Council.
