Ran into this guy on our way to Chipotle. I’ve passed him a fair number of times before but never really stopped to read the base and find out who it is.

Fun fact: it’s former Cleveland mayor Tom L. Johnson. And the poem inscription around the bottom is pretty cool…

Beyond his party and beyond his class
this man forsook the few to serve the mass

He found us groping leaderless and blind
He left us a city with a civic mind

He found us striving each his selfish part
He left a city with a civic heart

And ever with his eye set on the goal
the vision of city with a soul
