Ed FitzGerald has spent more than two decades in service to others-as a community volunteer, Congressional staff member, FBI Special Agent, Assistant County Prosecutor, City Councilman, Mayor of Lakewood, Ohio and now Cuyahoga County’s first County Executive.

The seventh of eight children, Ed worked his way through Ohio State University, and then attended night law school while serving as a staff member for the U.S. House of Representatives. He also became active in his community, volunteering as a reading tutor in the public schools, and working with a local senior citizen service program.

After graduating from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Ed was commissioned as a Special Agent with the FBI, assigned to the Organized Crime Task Force in Chicago. As a Special Agent, FitzGerald was recognized by the FBI Director for excellence while heading up a wide-ranging and successful investigation into organized crime and political corruption.

Returning to the Cleveland area, FitzGerald then served as a supervising Assistant County Prosecutor, a lawyer in private practice and then Mayor of Lakewood.
