Ed FitzGerald has spent more than two decades in service to others—as a community volunteer, Congressional staff member, FBI Special Agent, Assistant County Prosecutor, City Councilman, Mayor of Lakewood, Ohio and now Cuyahoga County’s first County Executive. After graduating from law school, Ed was commissioned as a Special Agent with the FBI. He later returned to Ohio to serve as a supervising Assistant County Prosecutor, a lawyer in private practice, and then Mayor of Lakewood.
As mayor, Ed built a partnership with City Council, working together to save millions of dollars and launching major initiatives with noteworthy accomplishments in safety, public integrity and economic development. Without raising taxes and actually shrinking the size of local government, Ed overhauled every city department to do more with less. Ed’s campaign for County Executive emphasized job creation, restoring integrity to county government, and delivering superior services.
