Successor Named for Cleveland City Councilwoman

Cleveland - Councilwoman Dona Brady has named Brian Mooney as her replacement to represent Ward 11 on Cleveland’s West Side.

Mooney is a lawyer who has held many public positions, including assistant county prosecutor for Cuyahoga County, a volunteer magistrate for Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court, a mediator for the Cleveland City Prosecutor’s office, and an assistant Ohio attorney general in the agency’s charitable law section.

“I am honored that Councilwoman Brady has nominated me as her successor,” said Mooney. “For two decades she has fought for the residents in Ward 11 and I intend to continue her work with the same passion and dedication.”

Monday, Mooney will be introduced during a council caucus at which a preliminary vote on his appointment will be taken.

Later, during City Council’s regular Monday night meeting, Council Clerk Patricia Britt will officially read Councilwoman Brady’s resignation into the record.

Then the council will vote on whether to appoint Mr. Mooney as her successor. Traditionally, council votes for whoever the resigning council member chooses.

Mooney, who is sure to be appointed, will be finishing out Councilwoman Brady’s current term which expires January 1st, 2022. He will have to run for election in November 2021 for a full term, which is four years.

Mooney graduated from St. Ignatius High School in 1987. He earned a bachelor’s degree from American University in Washington D.C. in 1992 and a juris doctor degree from Cleveland Marshall College of Law in 1995.
