“I have been a strong supporter of the North Ridgeville City Schools for many years and continue to be so. The last time they asked for new money, they made a promise that they wouldn’t ask for another ten years. They kept their promise and now after ten years they have returned for an operating levy. As we all know, costs and expenses have increased greatly over the past ten years and I support their request and I will vote for their levy on election day.”
– Mayor Kevin Corcoran, City of North Ridgeville
