Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner, has said she will make Ohio’s cities a priority if elected to U.S. Senate in 2010.
Ms. Brunner made her speech at Cleveland City’s Club Friday, according to 90.3 WCPN.
Brunner outlined three main goals that she’d pursue as Senator, starting with overhauling the way the Department of Urban Development, or HUD, approaches rehabbing low income housing. She said she wants to see HUD become a leader in green building practices, and collaborate more with the department of Labor to train and create jobs for green collar workers.
Brunner also said she’d work to shore up the automotive supply chain, proposing a new stimulus fund that would guarantee loans to suppliers whose credit has run dry, and to protect fresh water resources – especially the Great Lakes
