Cleveland city councilor switches registration from Democrat to Green

From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

Cleveland City Councilman Brian Cummins, who came into office as a Democrat, recently sent a letter to the party canceling his membership. He voted a Green Party ballot in the September primary for Cuyahoga County Council. Cummins had been a Columbus Green Party organizer before coming to Cleveland. This election was the first locally where a Green ballot could be requested…

Now, all Cleveland City Council members are Dems and they have a pact never to run another Democrat against a Democratic incumbent. Cummins, in losing the D, just lost that protection and put a big political target on his back for the next election…

“Council seats are nonpartisan elections anyway, and people vote for people who can do the job.”

    Brian received the endorsement of the Green Party of Ohio in 2009 for his re-election, before the party had status.
