CLEVELAND – Council member Joe Cimperman is resigning from office, the City of Cleveland announced Friday.
Cimperman is resigning to become president of Global Cleveland—a non-profit agency aimed at attracting people from around the world to live and work in northeast Ohio.
He will be vacating his post in March. At that time, city council will appoint a candidate for his replacement.
The replacement council member will serve through the rest of Cimperman’s term, which ends Dec. 31, 2017.
“I congratulate Global Cleveland for a very good choice in selecting Joe Cimperman,” said Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson. “Joe has always shown great passion and compassion in standing with both the immigrant and refugee population here in Cleveland. His work ethic and leadership speak volumes to his capabilities. One needs look no further than Ward 3 to see the fruits of his labors.”
