Beat: Poverty in Cleveland including housing, health and education
Position: Cleveland is one of the nation’s poorest cities, its people among the most disadvantaged. This reporter covers solutions-based topics that address these problems, with the long-term goal of giving people here a fighting chance at a decent life. The need for assistance is high, especially among our poorest residents. Resources and regulation are weak. Topics include clearing obstacles to safe, affordable housing; reducing hunger and malnutrition; fostering literacy; and protecting the frail. A key skill for this reporter is the ability to relate to people who live in inner-city Cleveland, and excellent storytelling.
