In addition to her work with Footprints, Howse’s work in Ward 7 was expanded when she was appointed to Cleveland City Council after the passing of the late Honorable Fannie M. Lewis.
Representative Howse’s desire to be a public servant was inspired by her mother Annie L. Key, a former State Representative.
