In The Region:

Jack Schron is now officially a candidate for Cuyahoga County executive, arguably the most powerful local office in Ohio.

Schron is a manufacturing executive, Army vet and a Republican in a strongly Democratic county. But he has the backing of another Republican – George Voinovich – who was elected Cleveland mayor before he went on to be governor and senator.

Schron is a County Council member, but is also underscoring his business and military background and his ties to the area.

“Can we take that same leadership that we’ve been able to exhibit in having run the business and having been a colonel in the military and having done an entrepreneurial startup business with our eldest son, can we take some of those same things so the entire (spectrum of) opportunities can benefit everybody from one end of the county to the other?” 

The Democratic favorite in the race is state Rep. Armond Budish.

Current Executive Ed FitzGerald is running for governor.

Cuyahoga voters adopted a new form of government that concentrated power in the hands of the executive in 2010 after dozens of public officials, were indicted.

Listener Comments:

Drop the charges against Zachary Leslein...he is innocent. 20 years old and accused of such a crime. The kid worked like a dog and lived paycheck to paycheck.
