John Corlett on Health, Human Services, and Consensus-building

On episode 132, Dan talks with John Corlett of the Center for Community Solutions about the need for a human service chamber in Northeast Ohio; the state of poverty in Ohio, including the vulnerabilities of Ohio’s aging population; and the political consensus that has emerged around Medicaid. John also reflects on his distinguished career serving Ohio in a range of ways, with some poignant remarks about the importance of collaboration and nonpartisan policy advocacy.

As noted, John steps down from his Community Solutions leadership role on November 30. You can support the John Corlett Rapid Response Fund, his Community Solutions legacy project, here. On December 1, 2023, Emily Campbell will assume the role of President and Executive Director of Community Solutions. Learn more about her here. Congrats, Emily!
