Euromaidan comes to Parma:
“Parma is with the Ukrainians!” So said Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter, who, on a cold, snowy day in December, enthusiastically offered words of inspiration and support at the most recent Euromaidan demonstration in Ohio’s seventh largest city and heart of the Cleveland area’s growing Ukrainian community. At Parma’s City Hall and Ukrainian Heritage Park in Ukrainian Village, hundreds have turned out for several organized demonstrations in a show of solidarity with the ongoing Euromaidan protests in Ukraine – a Texas-size country of 45 million located east of Poland and west of Russia in what some have referred to as the geographic center of Europe.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve enjoyed growing up in Parma, OH, and appreciated the great sights and sounds the Greater Cleveland area has to offer. After serving five years in the U.S. Navy while stationed in Virginia Beach, VA, I decided to return to my hometown of Parma in 2009.
Between my active involvement with various neighborhood revitalization initiatives in the local area and graduate studies at the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs, I’m constantly looking for ways to create a sustainable, positive impact in my community and I’m grateful to work with those passionate individuals who feel the same. Together, we will move Parma forward for the benefit of current and future generations.
