Public-private partnerships have been essential in driving Northeast Ohio’s economic resurgence over the past several decades, and the Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) has been an integral facilitator in bringing together the necessary partners for the betterment of the region.

This tradition of collaboration enters a new era in 2016 with the establishment of Greater Cleveland Civic Connection.

Former Northeast Ohio Congressman Steve LaTourette remembered

Former Northeast Ohio Congressman Steve LaTourette was born in Cleveland, began his career as a public defender and in private practice before becoming Lake County prosecutor in 1988.

He served our region in the U.S. House of Representatives for almost 20 years. He died last week at the age of 62 after battling cancer.

“I lost a friend and the region lost a titan of public service,” stated Congressman Dave Joyce (R-OH). “God rest, my friend. You will be missed.”

"Steve made tough decisions based on what was right, not on party loyalty," reflected Congresswoman Marcia Fudge (D-OH). “He was a statesman and a true public servant. Steve will be greatly missed.”

Congressman LaTourette will always be remembered as an elected official who worked across party lines and partisan politics. He was instrumental in supporting his constituency and members of the Greater Cleveland Partnership on a variety of priority issues included in our Public Policy Agenda. Read more.
