Frank Jackson interview, 21 August 2017

Frank Jackson was first elected Mayor of Cleveland in 2005, after serving 15 years in the City Council. As Mayor, Jackson kept the city solvent during a deep recession shortly after he took office. He has welcomed police reform, and has led a plan to transform Cleveland's public schools. This 2017 interview was collected as part of a yearlong, community-wide commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Carl Stokes' election as mayor of Cleveland.
