Jackson wants to work on development opportunities with Youngstown
"Cleveland is pursuing joint economic development opportunities with Youngstown, a fellow Rust Belt city 74 miles to the southeast, Mayor Frank Jackson was expected to announce this afternoon.

In his annual State of the City address at the Crowne Plaza Hotel downtown, Jackson was planning to stress the importance of regionalism.

Jackson also intended to note recent conversations with his counterpart in Youngstown, Mayor Jay Williams. According to a draft of the speech obtained in advance, the City Council in the Mahoning County seat already has signed off on a partnership with Cleveland."
