The News Herald: Cuyahoga County voters urged to renew health, human services levy

Mary Louise Madigan says there’s a simple reason Cuyahoga County voters have continued to pass its health and human services levy since the 1970s.

“The services are needed,” said Madigan, communications director for the county.

“Cuyahoga County residents understand it’s a good value. We value our neighbors’ health and wellbeing. It’s a very generous community, and we’ve always been careful and clear about how and where we spend the money.” On March 15, the 845,336 registered voters in Cuyahoga County are eligible to vote for Issue 23 to protect health and human services.

The eight-year, 4.8-mill renewal levy would not increase taxes and is expected to generate $130 million a year.
