Home Foreclosure Crisis
Free event in partnership with Dobama Theater
Moderated by County Treasurer Jim Rokakis

May 6, 2009

This is a FREE event!

Home ownership is part of the American Dream.  But what happens to a community when that dream is no longer affordable?  What happens to a community when a house is abandoned?

The City Club and the Dobama Theater has brought together a panel of first suburb mayors:

  • Mayor Dean DePiero-Parma
  • Mayor Ed Fitzgerald-Lakewood
  • Mayor Bill Cervenik-Euclid
  • Mayor Earl Leiken-Shaker
  • Mayor Beryl Rothschild-University Heights
  • Moderated by: Cuyahoga County Treasurer, Jim Rokakis

The panel will discuss how the current foreclosure crisis has effected their suburban communities once thought to be immune from these issues.  They will also discuss how their constituents are coping with the economic crisis.




The City Club belongs to its
members. The members set the tone and facilitate the discussion.
