CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH - Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish issued the following statement:

“The recent death of George Floyd in Minneapolis has stirred great and justified outrage. This is a scene that we have seen played out again and again and it is unconscionable. All Americans, regardless of race, religion, or nationality, must speak out against racism. I fully support the peaceful expression of protest over Floyd’s untimely and terrible death. African Americans across our country have suffered institutionalized racism long enough. It is crucial to remember that, come this November, we all have the opportunity to express our desire for change by voting in local, state, and federal elections.”
