Message from Mayor Blackwell:


I remain very optimistic about the future, the future of the greater Cleveland area and our City, Maple Heights.


I know that we have been handed some tough news in recent days, proposed cuts in basic human aid and it is fearful, the unknown. I cannot understand the rationale behind such thinking, how does it improve lives, address poverty and food insecurity, and very important, healthcare? We deserve better.


You all have worked long and hard for those things that you now draw from, social security, pensions, retirement accounts, health care and other subsidies. Our elected officials all over this county, state, and all the way to the White House should be fighting for what is right, decent and fair for their constituents. They are our voices, votes and signatures and we are asking them to act in our best interest in all of those quality of life issues that mean the most to us, not for any handouts, but for what we have rightfully earned.


Moreover, what we have earned are the promises of this great country:


What Herbert Croly, an intellectual leader of the progressive movement as an editor, political philosopher, a century ago, called "the promise of American life" was actu-ally two promises bundled into one:

(1) The promise of continued economic growth and

(2) The promise that the gains from growth would be equitably shared


(Retrieved from

Also quite notable were the words of: “Winston Churchill observed during the dark days before U.S. entry into World War II:

"The Americans can be counted upon to do the right thing, when they have exhausted the alternatives."  

(Retrieved from


Therefore, I still believe in the good of man and can be very positive about our future and as your Mayor, I am extremely enthusiastic about the City of Maple Heights and moving past these difficult financial and changing times.


Enjoy the sun and smells of a refreshing Spring!
