Together We Thrive

Armond Budish Quote

“I believe that the very foundation of our charter is the aspiration that our prosperity will be shared.

Our charter makes it clear that our County government must promote ‘the economic well-being and prosperity of the county and all of its residents.’ All residents, not just some, all must prosper on a fair and equitable basis.

The only way we deliver on our fundamental government purpose, to promote the economic well-being and prosperity of the county and ALL our residents is together.

When we stand together, we don’t let anyone fall by the wayside, especially those in need. When we see that we are one community there is nothing we cannot achieve. Every single person, business, organization and young mind represents an opportunity to add to our strength.

The success of Cuyahoga County delivering on the responsibilities depends on ALL of us. And when we succeed, we all thrive.”

Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish

Our vision for Cuyahoga County is:

A place bursting at the seams with arts, music, sports, great food, festivals, waterfront recreation, unique neighborhoods, distinctive places – all converging in one vibrant, dynamic, diverse community.

A place where businesses thrive – growing and profitable – and create good jobs for our residents.

A place where talented people come and stay to work with our thriving companies but also to innovate and create new businesses of their own.

A place where our children start school ready to learn, graduate high school, graduate college and build their careers, businesses and live right here.

A place where all voices are respected and heard – a place that is inclusive, celebrates its diversity and is welcoming to all.

A place where we take care of each other – we protect each other when we are at our most vulnerable, we provide each other a hand up when we most need it and we promote equal access to justice for all of us. 

A place where our zip code does not determine how far we will go in life.

A place where the American Dream is alive and well for all of us.
