A new chief executive will be running the government in the state's largest county starting in January. And incoming Cuyahoga County executive Ed Fitzgerald says he's making tough decisions now. Since he was elected, he's demanded the resignations of all members of the county's Boards of Revision when he takes office on January first, and he's asked officials to stop personnel moves such as making new appointments and transfers. And Fitzgerald defends that.
Fitzgerald has also told county employees that he feels their shame in the aftermath of the state's largest corruption scandal, but has warned them that financial problems are unavoidable and job cuts are inevitable.
