North Royalton Ward 3 & Community E-Newsletter: October 2020 (Volume 2)

Greetings Residents,Thank you to all those who have contacted me in expressing how happy you are that I will be re-running to earn back my Ward 3 City Council seat with your vote and support in the November 2021 General Election. Again I am confident that with an entirely new City Council and majority that we can make North Royalton a better city for all our families. Most importantly stand up to the dirty politics by the current City Council and administration will not be tolerated anymore.

Speaking of elections, early voting has begun for the November 3rd General Election. So much focus has been on the Presidential race. However, locally here in North Royalton we have four charter amendments that you need to do your homework on. Especially Issues #24 and Issue #26 before you cast your vote. Also listed below are number of other important things to make you aware of going on in our local government.

Have a Happy Halloween!

North Royalton Ward 3 & Community E-Newsletter: September 2020 (Volume 1)

Greetings Residents,

As a former North Royalton School Board Member, Cuyahoga Valley Career Center Board Member, North Royalton City Councilman and United States Army Veteran, I truly love serving my country and community through public service.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit our community, our city was already in trouble with the dysfunctional city government leading it.  Serving in the minority of City Council, I began to blow the whistle on these serious issues. I even successfully led a historic community effort against the mayor’s unilateral closure of our city jail and saved it. But the majority did not like that at all. They resorted to grimy politics, deleting public records, trying to get me kicked out of my church, violating my constitutional rights, led a mutiny against me to force me out as a duly elected official and the list goes on.

No doubt politics is a very dirty business, but when they targeted my 13 year old step son’s race and other family members for sport it became very personal. I have taken the time these last few months from it all so my family and I could heal and grow from this horrific experience. I have more desire than ever before to make sure the community has a voice. So many residents like you have contacted me, helped with the healing process, expressed your personal experiences of how you have been hurt by officials in our city government, and urged me to retake my seat on council.

I am ecstatic to announce that I will be re-running to earn back my Ward 3 City Council seat with your vote and support in the November 2021 General Election. I am confident that with an entirely new City Council and majority that we can make North Royalton a better city for all our families.

This is the first volume of my new and improved E-Newsletter to help keep you up to date on what is going on with our City Government, Community, and ways we can work together to advocate for the changes we need to help clean up City Hall.

Please feel free to contact me if I can be any service to you or your family.  I look forward to earning your support so that I can successfully return back to City Council and work even harder for all of you.

Sincerely,


Dan Langshaw
Former Councilman &
2021 Candidate for North Royalton Ward 3 City Council

Ward 3 E-Newsletter: June 2020

Greetings Ward 3 Resident,Summer is here. Unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic is still here too. Here in Ward 3 we have lost a resident to COVID-19. We have also had residents get COVID-19, including one resident who was hospitalized for over 40 days and even was on a ventilator. They have beaten COVID-19 and are home now. But their kidneys are compromised as a result of the virus and require dialysis. I share this with you all because we all want things to return back to normal.  But until there is a vaccine and further medical advances we all still need to be careful. So please continue to wear a face-covering or mask in public, use social distancing, wash your hands, sanitize commonly used surfaces at home, stay home if you are sick, and proper hygiene to help eliminate the spread of COVID-19 in our community! You can also read by Click Here why I feel it is important to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Again I am so proud of how brave, patient, and caring you all have been to help our fellow neighbors and local businesses struggling as a result of COVID-19! I have some additional COVID-19 information that you should be aware of since my last update and whats going in your city government.

Have a great week!

Ward 3 Quick Update: May 26, 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day weekend. Although yesterday this Memorial Day was not the normal that we are all use to due to COVID-19. We still gave pause and thanks for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for this great nation in our Armed Forces. Whether they fell in the Revolutionary War or the Global War on Terrorism and every war in between. They paid the ultimate price for the freedom we all enjoy today. We honored them unfortunately without the normal public ceremonies, but with private or virtual ones. President Trump even ordered all flags to half-staff this weekend to also mourned and honor the over 100,000 Americans who have lost their lives to COVID-19.

As our city, state, and country continue to reopen due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The virus is still among us. Please continue following safety measures below to keep yourself and others safe from further spread of COVID-19: Stay at least six feet from others at all times; Avoid crowded areas; Wear a cloth face covering to protect yourself and others; Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; and Bring hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to use if soap and water are not available.

Since my last update, Governor Mike DeWine has ordered additional business re-openings, and some additional items locally I like to give you a quick update on.

Have a great rest of the week!

Ward 3 E-Newsletter: May 2020

Greetings Ward 3 Resident,Hope all the mothers here in Ward 3 had a Happy Mother’s Day! We all don’t like this random snow. But is great to see the flowers starting to bloom and our state start the process of re-opening slowly but safely as we still combat this COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, the virus is still all around us and will continue to be something we will still have to deal with for the next several months or more. Current COVID-19 totals from the Ohio Department of Health are: 24,777 confirmed case; 4,413 hospitalizations; 1,357 deaths; 209,153 tested; and there are confirmed COVID-19 cases in all 88 counties throughout our state. Here in Cuyahoga County, the current COVID-19 totals from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health are: 1,540 confirmed cases;  age range 1 week to 101 years old for confirmed cases; 104 deaths; and 87-143 confirmed COVID-19 cases for our area in the 44133 zip code. So even as the current stay at home order is lifted come May 29th. Please continue to wear a face-covering or mask in public, use social distancing, and proper hygiene to help eliminate the spread of COVID-19 in our community! Even how tough things have been. I am so proud of how brave, patient, and caring you all have been to help our fellow neighbors and local businesses struggling as a result of COVID-19! Every day there seems to be new COVID-19 news we get bombarded with. So, I wanted to update you on some key COVID-19 news that you should be aware of since my last update and return back to a little more to my normal monthly updates on what is going on in your city government. So apologize this may be longer than my normal updates but just wanted to make sure I keep you in the loop.

Have a great week & Stay Safe!

Ward 3 Quick Update: April 15, 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

I hope everyone had a good Easter given the current Stay at Home Order still in place. As your City Councilman, I am doing all I can to help you and your families through this COVID-19 emergency. Hopefully you have received my ward-wide mailer with helpful information regarding COVID-19 last week. I have also stepped up my efforts to #MaskUpNRWard3 to help prevent further community spread of COVID-19. Yesterday, Governor Mike DeWine reported that state-wide there are 7,153 confirmed cases, 309 confirmed deaths, and 1,239 confirmed cases here in Cuyahoga County of COVID-19. Click Here to view full stats.

I am still getting complaints from residents about people in our community and even here in Ward 3 not following the Stay at Home Order by the State of Ohio and being large groups or not practicing social distancing. If you see a large group of folks not complying with the Stay at Home Order, please contact the North Royalton Police Department when it happens at 440-237-8686. They can politely remind them of the order and get them to disburse.

Please, Please, Please take COVID-19 seriously! Like everyone else I want things to go back to normal. ANYONE can get COVID-19 including beautiful Baby Eli and his father here in North Royalton! Thank you Eli’s parents Dawn and Sean for sharing their families story! Click Here to learn more. In speaking with them they wanted me to stress we ALL need to do out part to #FlattenTheCurve! Prayers for the Clancy Family and all those in our community battling COVID-19. #InThisTogetherNR #BeatCOVID19

Ward 3 E-Newsletter: April 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

We are living in unusual times and the next two weeks or more we may lose more Americans than 9/11. So as much as I like to give you my normal Monthly Ward 3 E-Newsletter I won’t be able too. I will give an abbreviated version with basic things going on in City Council, City Government, and Ward 3 while continuing to provide important COVID-19 information you need to know about. I am continuing to get complaints from residents about people in our community not following the Stay at Home Order by the State of Ohio and being large groups or not practicing social distancing. If you see a large group of folks not complying with the Stay at Home Order, please contact the North Royalton Police Department when it happens at 440-237-8686. They can politely remind them of the order and get them to disburse. I was a soldier in my younger years and I was prepared to sacrifice my life for my country if necessary in the defense of my country and for my fellow battle buddies. First Responders especially doctors and nurses don’t nor should they sacrifice their lives. Who is going to care for us if we lose them? That was my responsibility and my fellow brothers and sisters in the US Military. So please #StayHome, go out for only essential things (medication, groceries, and work at an essential business etc.) #MaskUpNRWard3, and if outside use #SocialDistancing including for your children. Hang in there and we can get through this but we all must work together to fight this war on COVID-19! Given this week is Holy Week (Easer in a few days too) and if you are religious please pray for all those on the front lines battling COVID-19 like Marissa my wife and the First Lady of Ward 3 who is trying to help save lives!

#StayHome & Still Have a Happy Easter!

Dan Langshaw
Ward 3 Councilman
North Royalton City Council

PS: Due to the large volume of phone calls. I ask residents and business needing assistance, please email me at Ward3@northroyalton.org so it will be easier for me to prioritize who I need to help or direct to the appropriate resources.

Ward 3 Quick Update: March 23, 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

As your City Councilman I am doing all I can to help you and your families through this COVID-19 emergency. I get daily updates from our State Lawmakers, various agencies, and officials on this every changing situation. I have even participated last Friday in a teleconference with our United States Congressman Anthony Gonzalez and other elected officials to provide input on how the federal government can help us here locally and our first responders on the front lines of this war against COVID-19. As of yesterday the Governor reported that state-wide there are 1,933 confirmed cases, 39 deaths, and 493 cases here in Cuyahoga County. I am continuing to get complaints from residents about people in our community not following the Stay at Home Order by the State of Ohio and being large groups or not practicing social distancing. If you see a large group of folks not complying with the Stay at Home Order, please contact the North Royalton Police Department when it happens at 440-237-8686. They can politely remind them of the order and get them to disburse. We all need to do our part! This is very serious and we must #StayHome to #FlattenTheCurve and end the community spread of COVID-19. Hang in there and we can get through this but we all must work together to fight this war on COVID-19!

Ward 3 Quick Update: March 20, 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

This COVID-19 emergency is something we ALL should take very seriously! This not business as usual! I have family, friends, and loves ones who are first-responders and medical professionals on the front-lines of this. I hear their stories daily. We MUST take this emergency seriously. Something we can all do is #StayHome as much as possible. If you must go out please use #SocialDistancing and other common-sense protective measures. Until you hear otherwise from health care officials, even if you have no symptoms to help #FlattenTheCurve of community spread of COVID-19. When looking back in history to past pandemics like the 1918 influenza pandemic the most severe pandemic in recent history. Like now they turned to proven tactics of isolation, quarantine, good personal hygiene, use of disinfectants, and limitations of public gatherings to help end the spread. I know all of you are on information overload at times. Me too! But also knowledge is power and it could even help save your life. I have been doing my best to keep up but things change on an hourly basis. So moving forward I will keep updating helpful information as a one-stop place for North Royalton Ward 3 COVID-19 Updates that include various information from all levels of government and I will focus more on adding things that residents have requested more information on like where to get carryout and etc.
