GOVERNOR WARNS CLEVELAND THEY MAY LOOSE TEAM OVER FINANCING
Published June 14, 1995
OH Gov. George Voinovich said Monday that if Cleveland Mayor Michael White and the City Council "don't stop arguing over how to pay for fixing up the Stadium, the city will find itself without a football team and stuck with 'a hulk' that needs to be torn down," according to the PLAIN DEALER. Voinovich "urged Cleveland's leaders to get their act together -- before it is too late." Voinovich said leadership must come from Mayor White and City Council President Jay Westbrook -- and urged the two to come up with a mutual plan (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 6/13). In an analysis in Sunday's PLAIN DEALER, Stephen Koff writes that the "distrustful" relationship between White and the City Council "has the potential to hurt efforts to keep the Browns from skipping town" (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 6/11).
