CLEVELAND – In a private ceremony attended by family and friends, Chris Ronayne was sworn in as Cuyahoga County’s third County Executive just after midnight on Sunday, January 1. Standing in front of the Irish Famine Memorial next to the Cuyahoga River, Ronayne was sworn in by Administrative and Presiding Judge Brendan Sheehan.
“My family, like all of your families, came from somewhere. During a time of famine, the United States took my family in and gave them an opportunity,” said Cuyahoga County Executive Chris Ronayne. “That’s what we need to give all Cuyahoga County residents: opportunity and a chance to build a better future.”
A ceremonial inauguration will be held at the Cleveland State University Student Center Ballroom on Saturday, January 21, at 10 a.m.
Event registration details will be released this week.
Admission is free, but seating will be limited.
