Catching Up With Council: Councilman Michael Polensek

TV20 is back with a new episode of Catching Up With Council! In this week’s episode, TV20 host Leah Longbrake sat down with Ward 8 Councilman, Michael Polensek.

After growing up and attending school in the Collinwood area, Councilman Polensek never imagined himself working in any form of government, instead working in one of the many factories in the Greater Cleveland area after high school.

Councilman Polensek is currently the longest sitting member of Cleveland’s City Council, having served the Collinwood Neighborhoods for over 40 years, or 12 consecutive terms.

Grab a snack and pull up a chair for this episode of Catching Up With Council, only on TV20, We Are Cleveland!
