Carl J. Carter for Richmond Heights City Council

Carl J. Carter
Carter has been a resident of Richmond Heights for over 35 years, and he has served as the chairman of the Richmond Heights Cultural Commission since 2006. He also served on the committee to establish the Richmond Heights Community Emergency Response Team.
As a council member, Carter said he would focus on creating a safe living experience for the residents of Richmond Heights by “lending support for the safety forces of our community and establishing agreements with homeowners and property leasers to agree to, and maintain zero tolerance for disruptive and illegal activity in our city.”
He said that the city’s financial status is stressed, “like most municipalities these days,” but would work diligently with his colleagues to apply funding appropriately for safety services.
Carter would also like to focus on community involvement. He said he would like to organize small neighborhood coffee clutches in hopes to open dialogue with residents as a way to “empower our citizens to lend expertise through volunteerism.”
He said neighborhood support may include checking on the elderly, assisting with yard maintenance for disabled residents and monitoring vacant properties in the community.
