East Cleveland itself can be viewed as a community. Back in my time we had the annual East Cleveland Community Picnic at Euclid Beach Park. Yes there were things, which united all those smaller communities I just mentioned. They were the things, which made East Cleveland a true community and not just a batch of fiefdoms and power centers. We were all proud to be East Clevelanders.
Finally, the voters selected a Judge of the East Cleveland Municipal Court. During my life in East Cleveland, there was only one Judge. His name was Stanton Adams. He was still there long after I left town. He had the reputation of being quite strict but fair in enforcing the law.
