Comedian Drew Carey plans to visit his hometown of Cleveland to discuss with City Council members his ideas to help revitalize the city. "The Price is Right" host is expected to meet with council members Thursday after accepting an invitation from Council President Martin Sweeney.

Last month, Carey argued for less government, more competition, less taxes and changes to schools in 10-minute segments about Cleveland on the website reason.tv. The site is affiliated with the Reason Foundation, a libertarian-leaning organization for which Carey is a board member.

In inviting Carey, Sweeney wrote "Clevelanders sometimes bristle at criticism from outsiders, but you are one of us ... as one of our Favorite Sons, your thoughts and ideas are most welcome."
