"Bob Reid has proven himself as a leader in our community with a high level of integrity.  His experience as a police chief, city manager and county sheriff make him the best qualified candidate for Cuyahoga County Executive.  We need strong county leadership and I am supporting Bob Reid for this important position."     - Mayor Collova, Garfield Heights


My public service experience, proven leadership strategies, and respect for the great people who live, work and do business in Cuyahoga County are qualities that you deserve in your County Executive.  I am the only candidate who has first-hand familiarity working with the Cuyahoga County Council and the department leaders who comprise our county government.

Having 35 years of experience building successful partnerships with local, state and federal agencies, I have delivered real solutions and fiscal responsibility while maintaining the integrity of the positions that have been entrusted to me as police chief, city manager and sheriff.

This is an exciting and challenging time for Cuyahoga County, as we have the capacity to be a vibrant region building on many recent economic development initiatives and successes.  We can accomplish this by

  • Creating jobs and filling the ones that are currently available.
  • Training and retraining employees through our excellent career and technical centers, public and private colleges and universities.
  • Partnering with The Manufacturing Advocacy & Growth Network (MAGNET) to create manufacturing opportunities.
  • Expanding the area’s well-respected medical and biotechnical industry.
  • Providing quality k-12 education for all children.
  • Developing the lakefront.
  • Keeping our young professionals here and attracting talented individuals to the area.
  • Receiving state and federal monies for infrastructure and economic development.
  • Ensuring safe communities.
I can assure you that when I am elected county executive I will work conscientiously to build a county government that is transparent in its operation.  Please contact my office with your comments, ideas, suggestions and concerns.  I look forward to earning your support.
