Bundled-up employees from an area moving company braved freezing winds on Wednesday to haul countless boxes and office furniture out of the space most-recently occupied by US Rep. Dennis Kucinich.
The former congressman has occupied the space at 14400 Detroit Avenue since 1997 when he began the first of his six terms in the 10th Congressional District.
At the end of December, Kucinich finished his last term.
Redistricting pitted Kucinich against long-time representative Marci Kaptur, who beat him in the newly drawn North Coast district.
He wasn't at the office on Wednesday afternoon. He was giving his final speech on the floor of 112th Congress.
“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve our nation together in our mutual pursuit of truth and understanding,” Kucinich said in a recent email. “While I will not be returning to the 113th session of the House of Representatives, I will continue to be active.”
It’s not yet known what’s next for the well-known Northeast Ohio politician.
A Kucinich staffer said that there “should be some news in the next couple months.”
The owner of Plantation Home, the high-end home furnishings store across the street, recently announced plans to open a second business in the location of the Kucinich office.
Cotton is expected to open by April.
