| Cuyahoga County Council District 7
Yvonne M. Conwell is honored to serve as the County Council Representative for District 7. She is committed to building an effective and efficient County government that continues to work every day for safer neighborhoods, stronger health and human services, and the inclusion of a vigorous business environment that promotes sustainable economic growth and equitable job development.
Under Conwell’s leadership, District 7 has been enriched by new business growth; creating jobs for businesses with established economic advancement support systems; collaborating with other agencies to help build partnerships that support District 7 infrastructure to be sustainable and stronger, and ensuring that Health and Human services safety nets continue to exist.
The Councilwoman has diligently sought to sponsor legislation in every committee she is a member of. And a proud Co-sponsor to adopt the first Equity Plan for Cuyahoga County. The Equity ordinance established definitions and identified specific approaches necessary to implement and achieve "fair and just" practices that were embedded as core elements in the goals and objectives of Cuyahoga County. This legislation was the foundation in which our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Department was established.
As a lifelong resident of Cuyahoga County and graduate of Cleveland State University, Mrs. Conwell has spent most of her career serving children and families. She loves the city, in which she lives, for its diversity in the arts and its longtime commitment to industry and education. Conwell has been married to her husband, Kevin and together they both enjoy all the arts Cuyahoga County has to offer.
Conwell is the Chair of the Health and Human services Committee, and is a member of Human Resources, Appointments and Equity, Pubic Works, Public safety, and Education, Environment & Sustainability Committee.
