(Cleveland) - Former East Cleveland Mayor Eric Brewer says he is running for Mayor of Cleveland. The 63 year old Brewer is currently a consultant, and says he's circulating petitions for a mayoral bid.
He accuses Cleveland City Hall of waste and mismanagement.
Brewer became East Cleveland's fourth elected mayor on January 1, 2006 and served one term. Brewer had been an investigative journalist.
He negotiated an agreement with Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson to take over East Cleveland's water department in 2008, resulting in significant savings to help the city as it struggled through fiscal emergency.
In 2009, brewer lost his bid for re-election as mayor of East Cleveland. He blamed the police union of releasing photographs depicting him wearing women's lingerie.
