The office of County Executive Ed Fitzgerald has released an official statement regarding Cuyahoga County Sheriff Bob Reid’s resignation. 

“After two years of work, it provides an opportunity for members of the leadership team and our administration to see where things stand and to make decisions in order to make our government work effectively as possible,” the statement reads. 

According to the statement, the executive’s office is reviewing leadership across all departments. 

The statement adds that Clerk of Courts Gerald Fuerst announced his retirement last week, and that other leadership changes may be announced soon. Frank Bova, a former interim county sheriff, will again fill that role while the search for a new sheriff is underway. 

Fitzgerald added that the county respects Reid’s “long commitment to public service” in the county.
