Hello friends and neighbors,
Please allow me to thank the residents of Woodmere Village for entrusting me with another four years as council representative. I would also like to thank the members of the 2016 council for selecting me to serve again as president of the body. We take our duty seriously, and it is a privilege and honor to be public servants.
In collaboration with Mayor Charles E. Smith Jr., and his administration, Woodmere has made significant strides over the last 48 months. The Village has achieved one million dollars in reserves, successfully negotiated labor contracts, attracted trendy businesses to our community, and laudable improvements in public and safety services.
Our business community offers upscale eateries, specialty shops, financial services, health, medical and numerous conveniences. We firmly believe Woodmere Village will be a more attractive destination for locals and those visiting from far and wide for the upcoming Republican National Convention.
Council seeks to engage the Administration and other interested parties as we present a collaborative posture that protects the public interests in Cuyahoga County and the state of Ohio. We value community input and look forward to upholding Woodmere Village as the “Gateway to the Chagrin Valley”.
Benjamin I. Holbert, III
