(Cleveland) - Local government and community leaders leaders gathered on the steps of City Hall for Mayor Frank Jackson's official endorsement of Ed FitzGerald for Governor.

Jackson acknowledged that he has collaborated with the Governor John Kasich on a number of projects including school reform, but contends FitzGerald would make a better governor because he has experience on the city and county level.

The Cuyahoga County Executive thanked the mayor for his support and pledged to restore cuts in city government funding if elected. He also promised to concentrate on the challenges facing average working people.
