CH City Council candidate Russell outlines her experience and priorities

Davida Russell

My name is Davida Russell and I am asking for your vote on Tuesday, Nov. 5, for Cleveland Heights City Council. I have lived in Cleveland Heights for 37 years and this is where my family and I call home.

As a lifelong Democrat and labor leader at the national, state and local level, I have worked tirelessly on behalf of working men and women around this state, many of whom reside in Cleveland Heights. Now it is time that I bring my energy home. If elected, my top priorities as your next CH City Council representative will be to focus on:

  • Increasing the safety of our community
  • Attracting residential and business investment
  • Securing economic development opportunities

I bring a different background and perspective to this position. I have worked with students affected by developmental disabilities for 35 years, and now I’m a substitute teacher and school bus driver for the South Euclid-Lyndhurst School District.

I believe my experience in leadership, listening, advocacy, service, patience, and my ability to set goals, analyze issues, and solve problems can help contribute to the success of the community I deeply care about!
