The director of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections is leaving to become chief of staff for the new county prosecutor, Tim McGinty. 

Jane Platten is largely credited with turning around the elections board when she took over in 2004. It had been plagued with big delays and other snafus that drew national ridicule. 

McGinty says he wants Platten to implement similar reforms and best practices in his office, which has 340 employees. 

McGinty took over as acting prosecutor when Bill Mason resigned in October and was easily elected to the post on Nov. 6.
