Councilman Schron is CEO of machine parts maker Jergens Inc, and he chairs council’s economic development committee. And Doug Magill of Cuyahoga County’s Republican Party says Schron can use that business background to create jobs. Magill says the medical mart at the new convention center is one opportunity.

“The next level, from an economic development standpoint, is leveraging this Global Center for Health Innovation to bring in more companies. Not just to have a presence there, but to set up some of their service, support and manufacturing facilities here in Cleveland, like Philips has done.”

Magill says Schron also wants to grow the county’s budding filmmaking industry, and improve the delivery of social services. So far, Jack Schron is the only Republican who’s officially announced a run for executive in predominantly the Democratic county. On the Democratic side, State Representative Armond Budish, State. Sen. Shirley Smith, and former County Sheriff Bob Reid are all running.
