CLEVELAND — Former Cleveland City Councilman Zack Reed announced Monday that he’s running for Cleveland’s next mayor.
Reed, who stepped down recently from his role as Minority Affairs Coordinator with the Ohio Secretary of State, made the announcement on Twitter.
An amazing future is within our reach. As #Cleveland's next Mayor, we’re going to strengthen our neighborhoods, create more opportunities and ensure a better life for all residents. https://t.co/8o24Nvmqno pic.twitter.com/iras1T7LoL— Zack Reed (@zachreed12) March 22, 2021
“I grew up in Cleveland. I have been in every neighborhood and probably every street,” said Reed. “I am running for Mayor to make a difference in the lives of real people throughout this city.”
Under Frank LaRose, Reed helped launch the "Styling for Democracy. Now Vote," a partnership with barbershops, salons and schools to encourage members of the community to vote and sign up to be a poll worker.
In 2017, Reed unsuccessfully ran for mayor of Cleveland against Frank Jackson, who at the time was seeking a historic fourth term.
