District 7 - Yvonne M. Conwell
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.
The Councilwoman primarily focuses on initiatives that promote positive youth development, upholds the mission of Health and Human Services, and fosters economic development. While in office, Mrs. Conwell sponsored legislation to oppose Ohio Senate Bill 5 that would limit collective bargaining rights. In addition, Mrs. Conwell co-sponsored legislation 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.
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, for 29 years and together they have raised three children.
