Cleveland, OH. - With the race underway, former East Cleveland Mayor Eric J. Brewer decided to throw his hat in the race for the 11th Congressional District. Brewer served as East Cleveland's Mayor for four years. "I am the only candidate who has managed a city. I am the only candidate in this race who has read and understands the White House legal opinions. Candidates need to read and learn federal court cases. Electors need to make sure that the next Congressperson is responsible to the people of the 11th congressional district, not a political party." stated Brewer.
According to Brewer's website, before becoming the Mayor of East Cleveland, he served as a Special Assistant to former City of Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White. He served as Chief of Staff to former East Cleveland Mayor Emmanuel Onunwor; and Chief of Communications to the late George James in his capacity as the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority's first Black Executive Director. Brewer was appointed to serve as a member of the state's Financial Planning & Supervision Commission to guide the East Cleveland school district out of fiscal emergency and $20 million deficit.
Brewer stated, "the next 11th Congressional District representative must know about the “swamp” in Washington, D.C. It has to be someone you know who will dig for the truth. It has to be someone no one controls. It has to be someone patriotic and loyal, only, to the United States of America and Americans. They need to read, learn and understand the United States Constitution. Personally, I will be a bit more outspoken than the average congressional representative."
The 11th congressional district includes the entire city of Cleveland and the majority of eastern suburbs.
The 11th Congressional Race has four candidates: Eric Brewer (Republican) will join Republican John Hemphill and both Democrats, Shontel Brown and Nina Turner.
The Primary Election is May 3, 2022.
