KeyBank: "We practice inclusion in everything we do"

Beth Mooney, CEO of KeyCorp and Chair of the Greater Cleveland Partnership, tows the local party line, led by Mayor Frank Jackson, and rejects the immigrant-friendly-city movement as a legitimate way to grow Cleveland's population, boost entrepreneurship and create jobs, attract foreign direct investment, and revitalize neighborhoods. Cleveland is an outlier, with business and political leaders in Columbus, Dayton, Cincy, Pittsburgh, Detroit, St. Louis, Buffalo, Syracuse, Toledo.....doing the exact OPPOSITE of the insular/parochial policies that Mooney, GCP and City Hall are defending. Wonder how immigrants and internationals now feel about KeyBank? This lock-step form of leadership in Cleveland (reminiscent of Soviet style politics) is protecting status quo politicians. Why? because they are pliable and available to serve private interests, at the expense of the best interests of citizens.

In this article Robert Smith, Economic Development reporter for the Plain Dealer, asks Mooney whether Cleveland should join our peer cities and make OVERT efforts to attract, welcome and integrate immigrants as an economic development effort. What she says is shocking and indicative of a crisis in leadership in Greater Cleveland. She admits that attracting immigrants makes good economic sense, but suggests nothing will be done by local political and business leaders to overtly encourage it. 

Plain Dealer:
"Immigrants still matter, but not so much

Despite a robust downtown, Cleveland's population continues to slide, largely due to a lack of immigrants. City and county officials have yet to endorse immigrant welcome strategies adopted by other Rust Belt cities. Mooney is not likely to push them.

Attracting immigrants makes good economic sense, Mooney said.

"I think that many cities that do that have seen the benefits of welcoming immigrants," she said.

But immigrants will find their way here naturally as the city improves without them, Mooney said. Meanwhile, the current political climate makes immigration a sensitive issue.

Under Connor, the GCP endorsed an immigration reform plan passed by the U.S. Senate. It would make it easier for cities like Cleveland to attract and keep high-skill immigrants. But the partnership has been largely silent since the bill stalled in a U.S. House of Representatives led by Ohio's John Boehner.

"When do you lead, when do you follow, how do you influence?" Mooney asked. "I think very definitely the Greater Cleveland Partnership has acknowledged that immigration reform is part of economic vitality and economic inclusion."

And that may be it for awhile.

"It's really a lot of public policy in lawmakers hands now," she said. "That is important. But it's not our ball to carry."

"Immigrant, Inc. St. Louis" -- proud to play a small part in yesterday's great event in St. Louis! What energy, inspiration and innovation on growing the St. Louis economy, in part, by welcoming, retaining and attracting immigrants. Their goal: BE THE FASTEST GROWING MAJOR METRO FOR FOREIGN-BORN BY 2020. Great to share the podium with St. Louis Mayor Slay, County Commissioner Dooley, CEO of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership Denny Coleman, Todd Schulte, CEO of Forward.us (Mark Zuckerburg & Bill Gates advocacy group for immigration reform) and Mosaic CEO Betsy Cohen. Jason Wiens, Lead Policy Manager for the Kaffuman Foundation was in the house. Good also to be with Anna Crosslin the amazing CEO of the International Institute, the refugee resettlement agency in St. Louis with a $5 million budget, 70 employees and they occupy every inch of their 30,000 feet building. I toured the facility and it blew me away. They just bought a new building and will be moving there in early next year ---- it's 130,000 square feet! Also great to meet Bob Fox, the philanthropist/entrepreneur (the family behind "Build-A-Bear" company) who is one of the driving forces in the immigrant-attraction movement in St. Louis. Rare to see in one city the coalescence of political, business, philanthropic and civic leadership around this issue. I can see why Anderson Cooper of CNN did a piece on them, and why they are garnering national press in the Wash Post, Wall Street Journal and NYTimes. Leadership. Great job St. Louis --- building the infrastructure for the Next Economy!

#Baltimore: using all the tools to rebuild: "Since the middle of the last century, the city of Baltimore has struggled to regain its footing as key industries such as steel processing and car manufacturing became unprofitable or moved overseas. During this period, the city lost 300,000 residents and the deadly cycle of depopulation took its familiar toll: services were cut, leading to surges in crime and poverty, leading to more depopulation.

To restore its fortunes, Baltimore hatched a plan that is the subject of a new film posted by the Next City website. It is another example of a city evolving and adapting to become more resilient – except that instead of adapting to stronger hurricanes or droughts, Baltimore is adapting to the economic realities of the 21st century.

In 2012, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced an initiative to attract 10,000 families to the city, and, in sharp contrast to the rhetoric coming out of many other cities at the time, she affirmed that immigrants would be one of the main demographics targeted.

It has proved an inspired plan. The resourcefulness of this enterprising group, and the re-populating feedback loop they have the power to create, is one of the main reasons the city wanted to attract immigrants in the first place. Now, for the first time in half a century, Baltimore’s population is rising once again, and the city’s physical location seems less important to its success than ever, as its newest residents expand its boundaries across the world.

The film was shot and produced by Still Life Projects in Baltimore over the course of one week in March. Click here to read their behind-the-scenes account of creating it.? http://www.theguardian.com/cities/2014/jun/26/baltimores-answer-to-economic-decline-attract-more-immigrants?CMP=twt_gu
This new short film explores the city’s enlightened approach to regeneration following the decline of its traditional industries

"Michael #Bloomberg says #immigrants are the key to spurring economic growth in U.S. #cities........Elaborating on a comment he made in May during an interview on NBC's Meet the Press about how to curb Detroit's population decline and foster economic growth, Bloomberg said that offering citizenship to entrepreneurial immigrants is the best way to to revitalize the nation's struggling cities.

"One thing that our country has that everybody wants--and we could give without any great pain--is citizenship," Bloomberg said. "What I would do for cities like Baltimore and Detroit is to say to the world: If you want to come, we'll assign you to a city and the deal is you take no state, federal, or local aide, you stay out of trouble, and you and your family have to live in that city for seven years." Anyone following that path would be eligible to become a U.S. citizen at the end of that period.


Bloomberg further called for allowing immigrants to apply to any job without needing a visa sponsor and to rent or buy a home with no complicated issues. Once situated, he said, they would pay taxes....
