President Donald Trump has always been vocal on twitter with more than 35 million followers and 35.5 thousand tweets. So we asked the Cleveland mayoral candidates to give it a shot.
There are now nine candidates on the ballot, making it tough for Clevelanders to choose who will lead the city they love to four more years of growth.
We challenged all the candidates to tell us in the most creative way on Twitter why they should be the next mayor of Cleveland. The response must be in one tweet sent @WKYC by 3 p.m.
Out of those nine candidates, five responded to our tweet.
Here are the results.
I want to be the next mayor to make us safer, smarter & more prosperous. Someone has to work FOR the people. I’m that guy. #CLEthepeople— Brandon Chrostowski (@Chrostowski4CLE) August 2, 2017
I've served as mayor, chief of staff to the mayor, special assistant to the mayor. I have clue. Frank doesn't. The rest ... forget 'em. pic.twitter.com/VtwtKYqATw— Eric Jonathan Brewer (@ericjbrewer1953) August 2, 2017

We didn’t here back from either the Smith or Patmon campaign.
Mayor Frank Jackson's tweet came in after the 3 p.m. deadline.
And surprisingly Councilmen Zach Reed who is no stranger to Twitter said he would give us an answer, but his latest tweets did not answer our question.
Needless to say, things got pretty creative. But the people voted that Brandon Chrostowski had the best tweet overall.
