CLEVELAND – “My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the Honorable George V. Voinovich. He was a uniquely talented leader who served our state and the city of Cleveland selflessly as Governor, Senator, and as a fellow Mayor of the City of Cleveland. He will be missed.

He was a real Clevelander. We did not look at him as a Republican or a Democrat but, as a Clevelander who we supported. He was a great man, a good leader, and consummate professional.”
