Dennis Kucinich is an author and statesman, serving 16 years in the US Congress and was twice a candidate for President. During his term as Cleveland Mayor (1977-1979) the Fraternal Order of Eagles recognized him as "The Outstanding Public Official in America." In recent years the Washington Post Magazine called Kucinich "the future of American politics." "Ahead of his time," declared Rolling Stone Magazine. Gore Vidal called Kucinich's writing "as good as Theodore Dreiser's." Ralph Nader favorably compares Kucinich's writing with the legendary muckraking journalist, Lincoln Steffens. The Division of Light and Power melds Kucinich's writing excellence with undisputable documentary power and the moral code of a leader who cannot be corrupted.
THE DIVISION OF LIGHT AND POWER
“I believe in public ownership of public service monopolies….
Because if you do not own them, they will in time own you.
They will corrupt your politics, rule your institutions and finally destroy your liberties.”
Tom L. Johnson,
Founder of Muny Light
Mayor of Cleveland, 1901-1909
