City Suspends Commissioner For Misrepresenting Credentials

CLEVELAND – A woman who used a $99 mail-order diploma to get an $80,000 a year job as a city commissioner in Cleveland was disciplined on Wednesday, 19/43 News reported.

As a result of a 19/43 News investigation last month, the city suspended Shareen Jackson for 10 days without pay for misrepresenting her credentials.

The city also revealed new charges against Jackson, including conduct unbecoming an employee in the public service.

A city official said that its investigation into Jackson's financial dealings will continue, and more charges might be filed.
