U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, and U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Cleveland
By Bill Rice
Rep. Dennis Kucinich is most in his element when he’s fighting against social injustice.
Wherever he sees an outrage against the little guy, you’ll find the Ohio Democrat railing against it — like at a recent public meeting about a new trash-to-energy facility Cleveland wants to install in a west side neighborhood.
“This is about our community, where we live,” the former Cleveland mayor told the gathering. “And we’re not going to live in a place where there’s a garbage incinerator that’s ruining our community. So I’m going to take a strong stand on this. We’ll use the full power that we can summon from Congress on this and we’re going to stand with this community to make sure this garbage incinerator never happens.”
