Michael Wager, Taft partner and former Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority board chairman, participated in a radio podcast September 25, 2012. Sponsored by National Public Radio station, WCPN 90.3 AM, the topic of discussion was "Will Voters Support the Port?" Wager was joined in the discussion by Will Friedman, CEO, Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority; Joe Cimperman, Cleveland City Council and Eric Hauge, general manager, ArcelorMittal, Cleveland.
WCPN promoted the podcast as below:
"Cleveland, most people can agree, has not capitalized on its waterfront real estate. A sewage treatment plant, an industrial port, uninspiring lakefront parks and an airport dominate the shoreline. The regional Port Authority has a plan to make things better, balancing recreation, economic development and industry. But it needs more cash to do it. On the next Sound of Ideas, the port's levy request and what that money would buy."
