On the Record with Mayor Vince Leone

Editor’s Note: Port Clinton Mayor Vince Leone will be doing an interview once a month addressing talked about topics in town on the record. Mayor Leone will also start coming to one Coffee with the Editor a month, dates to be announced. Coffee with the Editor is held at Common Grounds on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. and anyone is welcome to attend.

The first topic on the table for discussion is Waterworks Park development, downtown revitalization and CORD’s presence in the community.

“This administration has accomplished a lot, things people told me could not be done; revitalizing the downtown, fixing the shoreline. Elected city officials are given the responsibility to do what’s best to move the city forward and we take that very seriously. The general public elects us and they have elected officials that they feel will move the city forward.”

 “We need to get people in here (the city) to create revenue to get more money for our city. The public has spoken repeatedly about this issue and we are trying to move forward. CORD says that we are not listening to them, but we have heard them, loud and clear, they are, by far, not the majority.”
