Laura J. Gorshe, Euclid Ward 8 Councilwoman
As Councilwoman of Ward 8, my number one priority is to work hard with the citizens’ best interests in mind. Their expectation of me as their elected representative is a great responsibility that I take seriously. I value their trust, as it is critical to the Ward’s success.
Ward 8 is in the middle of Euclid and is unlike any other ward, as it consists of residential, and commercial areas as well as city buildings, high school, library, golf course and parks.
A Ward 8 Resident Forum was held on March 25th, at the Euclid Public Library, bringing together both residents and city officials. Public Service, Planning and Development, Special Projects, Housing and the Police Department presented information about their departments. Residents were able to gather information, receive updates and have their questions answered. Over 75 Residents attended this meeting.
Committees - I am the Chairwoman of the Housing and Building Standards Committee. This critical committee explores and discusses a variety of housing issues such as rentals, landlords, policy, department procedures, and legislation. I am also a member of the Executive and Finance, Community Assets and Buildings, Public Safety and Community Engagement Committees.
