the Councilman of new Ward 10. For anyone who

Village. Because of the size of the Ward 10 area I have
worked to develop partnerships, provide a process for
people to assist us in responding to the major issues of our
neighborhoods and to work to improve our community. It is
critical that residents of Ward 10 also join us in our efforts to

A Message from
Anthony T.
Cuyahoga County Councilman, District 10
Dear Constituents:
My name is Anthony T. Hairston and I am the
District 10 Cuyahoga County Councilman. The areas
in which I serve include the cities of Cleveland’s Ward 8,
Ward 10, East Cleveland, Cleveland Heights, University
Heights and the village of Bratenahl. As a lifelong
Clevelander and current resident of Cleveland’s
Ward 10, I am aware of the challenges faced by
Cleveland and its’ suburban neighbors. However, I
believe there is a brighter, prosperous day for the region
as long as we continue to band together and work for
the common good of our communities.
Since my appointment in March 2014, I have
worked diligently for the the residents of Council
District 10 by sponsoring and voting for legislation that
will help create jobs, provide necessary benefits to the
community and protect voter rights. Those resolutions
1. Authorizing an agreement with the Educational
Service Center of Cuyahoga County for the Help
Me Grow Bright Beginnings Home Visiting
Program in order to implement and maintain
coordinated, community-based family services for
expectant parents, newborns, infants, toddlers and
their families.
Summer Youth Employment program to
enhance employment skills of eligible youth in
Cuyahoga County.
3. Voting for the Cuyahoga County Voting Rights
Law to protect our citizens’ right to vote. The
legislation promotes voter registration at all levels
of citizen interaction with County Government;
Promotes early voting programs, including
the voting by mail program; and seeking court
intervention to protect access to the ballot by the
County’s citizens.
I have collaborated with Cleveland Ward 10
Councilman Jeff Johnson on many occasions
and I look forward to working with him in the
future to bring jobs, better education and more
opportunities to our community. By working
together with Councilman Johnson and the community
at large, we can transform Cleveland’s Ward 10 into
a prosperous place to live and the best location in
Cuyahoga County.

will work with us to move our neighborhoods forward in
a positive way. Additionally, I am working closely with
Councilmen Michael Polensek and Kevin Conwell in a joint
effort to focus on improving the entire northeast community
of Cleveland. The coalition we have formed will include Wards
8, 9 and 10. Together we expect to be stronger for change. We
have also asked Cleveland State University and the Cleveland
Neighborhood Progress Inc. to assist in our efforts.
I am excited about the future in Ward 10 and in the
Northeast area of Cleveland. There are tough and challenging
issues but I believe our community residents, organizations
and other supporters will work together to make us stronger
and better. Remember, we are Ward 10 Proud.
Thank you,

Senior Homeowners Beware: Home Remodeling Scams
From the City of Cleveland Department of
Community Development
The Office of Fair Housing & Consumer Affairs,
Department of Community Development, City of Cleveland,
is issuing a CONSUMER ALERT regarding remodeling
contractors who convince seniors that their homes
can be repaired and/or remodeled for free without
the consequences of a loan or mortgage.
In Cleveland neighborhoods, The Office of Fair
Housing & Consumer Affairs has received complaints from
seniors who were unaware that they had signed reverse
mortgages after being solicited by remodeling contractors
to do work on their homes.
In some cases, the contractors have taken all the
proceeds from the senior homeowner and performed little
or no work. The Office of Fair Housing & Consumer Affairs
has concluded from the cases that it has examined that
there is an inherent conflict of interest when contractors
and/with mortgage brokers (and their representatives)
steer senior homeowners into reverse mortgages.
These contractors have told seniors that there is an FHA
program (Federal Housing Administration) that will provide
funds to repair their homes with no monthly payments; no
credit required, no income required or payback leaving the
seniors with the false conclusion that they are receiving
the remodeling work for free or that it is being paid for by
“the government” when, in fact, the repairs are being paid
for by the senior with a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage
Reverse mortgage scams are engineered by
unscrupulous professionals in a multitude of real estate,
financial services, and related companies to steal the
equity from the property of unsuspecting senior citizens
or to use these seniors to unwittingly aid the fraudsters in
stealing equity.
The Office of Fair Housing & Consumer Affairs advises
seniors to avoid accessing Reverse Mortgages through
or on the advice of Home Repair or Home improvement
contractors. If you are considering a Reverse Mortgage
(Home Equity Conversion Mortgage HCEM), seek out a
qualified reverse mortgage counselor from a legitimate
agency such as Neighborhood Housing Services of Greater
Do not seek or listen to advice from anyone who is
connected to the mortgage company such as a “steerer” at
your church or a contractor or his/her “steerers”. [A “steerer”
is a person who testifies and endorses a product or service
and who may or may not be compensated for providing
leads to a products or service provider such as a contractor
or mortgage company.
