Room packed for City Council digital inclusion hearing

Cleveland City Council’s special “Digital Inclusion Week” hearing last Wednesday drew a standing-room-only crowd in support of City support for community digital inclusion efforts.

The hearing — convened jointly by Council’s Committees on Health and Human Services, Utilities, Workforce and Community Benefits, and Development, Planning & Sustainability — was organized and led by Health and Human Services Chairman (and Ward 14 Councilman) Brian Cummins. Eleven of Council’s other sixteen members were present to hear at least some of the two hours of testimony.*
