I was at the grocery store and saw the PD in the cart of the woman in front of me. I realized I hadn’t read the paper yet today (I do it online) so when I got home I did. It was sad to read an obit about Ed Hauser. He was only 47 years old.
I did not really know Ed personally. But if I was at a County Planning Commission Mtg, he was there. If I was at a Port Authority meeting (like the one Meet the Bloggers held), Ed was there. If I was at an Ohio City or Connecting Cleveland meeting, Ed was there.
He was so committed to what he did and I’m sure was a thorn in the side to people involved in any development ideas that surrounded or included Whiskey Island. But you know what? That kind of grass roots activism is what makes a difference. If he had to pass away at such a young age, he leaves a legacy of heartfelt effort on Whiskey Island’s behalf.
I’m sure many (if not all) of the NE Ohio bloggers will be noting his passing. Read the article – it’s a great way to realize just what activism can accomplish.
