WCPN Ward 14 follow up

 This was posted on the WCPN site as a follow up note. It is in italics:

Note: On the program, Ward 14 candidate Rick Nagin closed by claiming his opponent, Brian Cummins, had voted against a salary reduction for council members and voted against funding an aquarium project in the Powerhouse Building in the Flats West Side. We said we would fact check those claims. Councilman Cummins explained that the salary question was in reference to a raise that had been voted in prior to his joining council. He supported keeping the raise intact. And he did vote against the aquarium funding because he supports a competing aquarium proposal that would create a substantially larger facility.

Note: he gave Plain Dealer reporters answers different than WCPN.
