Jay Westbrook Leaves City Hall, But Not The City
Jay Westbrook served on Cleveland City Council for 34 years, and was council president during the decade of the 1990s, when projects like Gateway, The Rock Hall, and the Science Center were built.
In this interview, the retiring Ward 16 councilman talks about life after city hall, how he got there from the University of Kentucky in the 1970s, and what he considers to be his most significant contributions to the city of Cleveland.
He also offers a prediction about the future political make-up of Cleveland City Council.
