Ed Hauser passes away, Clevelands activism feels the loss
Whiskey Island from the Coast Guard StationI only met Ed Hauser in passing twice but his outspoken activism, calling for common sense in our region's governments and fighting for the environment including the preservation of Whiskey Island, made him memorable as one willing to speak his mind and stand for his beliefs, usually relying on well researched and thoughtful arguments to counterbalance emotional topics.
In 2005 the documentary Citizen Hauser was produced following Hauser's transition from a steelworker at LTV to the "Mayor of Whiskey Island", one of Cleveland's yet unexploited jewels.
Ed passed away the morning of Friday, November 14th, 2008. A great loss for our community and city will be felt at many levels. We should do our best to keep his memory alive by following his example of public activism.
