Group Wants To Recreate Successful Efforts From The Past.
About 3o years ago a group of PTA folks got together because they were tired of the school board members and what they were doing. This group called themselves EXCEL which stood for Euclid Citizens for Educational Leadership. Their efforts produced a slate of candidates that went on to serve Euclid very well. Carol Bechtel, Carol DeWine and Barb Kramer all did a great service to our community for many years.
This brings us to today. As everyone knows The Just Say No group defeated all three issues that were on the November ballot. With this in mind we have decided to keep the momentum going and turn in another direction. We would like to help local candidates/ incumbents for all positions that are up for election this fall. We are asking for any and all persons that are interested in running for office to contact us by February 15th. The positions that are up for reelection include the Mayor; Council seats 1, 3, 5 and 7. There are also 2 school board positions that will be open.
Once we have the names of all interested parties we will set up an interview process for early March. Our group is currently called Responsible Euclid Citizens for Equitable Taxation or RECET. Since we will be promoting and helping candidates by law we will be filing for a new PAC. The name will change but the mission will be to find and support good candidates for local offices.
We currently have over 100 members but we are looking to add to our membership. If you would like to be a part of this new endeavor please contact Jeff Beck at 216- 759-2840 or message either of us on facebook.
