Former FBI Agent turned Ohio Gov Candidate

From Ed's website:

Ed FitzGerald is a husband, father, and lifelong public servant.

Born into a large family, as the seventh of eight children, Ed learned early in life the importance of hard work and responsibility. He and his wife Shannon have been married for over 21 years, and are the proud parents of four teenagers: Jack, Connor, Colleen and Bridget.

After working his way through Ohio State University and later night law school, Ed embarked on a lifetime of public service, beginning by becoming a Special Agent with the FBI. Trained at the FBI Academy in Quantico, he took an oath to serve the public and put people first, a commitment that has shaped his adult life.

As an FBI Agent, Ed was assigned to the Organized Crime Task Force in Chicago, working to hold corrupt politicians accountable. He investigated political corruption and mafia influence, helping to bring the infamous Cicero crime syndicate to justice.

After his FBI service, Ed returned to Ohio, serving as an assistant county prosecutor and eventually Mayor of Lakewood. As Mayor, Ed made government smaller and more efficient, while still making major investments in public safety and job creation. Under Ed’s leadership, Lakewood was recognized as being one of the best places in Ohio to raise a family.

Following one of the largest public corruption scandals in the history of Ohio, the people of Cuyahoga County elected Ed to lead a new county government as their first County Executive. On his watch, he restored the public’s trust by putting in place some of the toughest ethics laws in Ohio and significantly reducing the size of the government, while at the same time making a down payment on the future. With the millions saved by his reforms, he made ground breaking investments in real job creation, expanded pre-school enrollment, and is now establishing the largest college savings account program in the country to foster a culture of college attendance in Ohio.
