U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge endorses Armond Budish for Cuyahoga Executive
“With so many pressing problems facing our area, we need strong and dynamic leaders here in Cuyahoga County who are willing to put the needs of our communities first. Armond Budish is that kind of leader,” Fudge said in a news release issued after a press conference held in Warrensville Heights. “Today, I am enthusiastically endorsing Armond Budish, and I will be working side by side with him on this campaign, and then on the challenges facing our region.”
Budish, a Beachwood Democrat who has served as a state representative since 2006 and served two years as Ohio House of Representatives speakers, thanked the congresswoman for her endorsement.
“Over the last few months, I’ve outlined a bold vision to bring jobs and prosperity to northeast Ohio, making sure that all persons are included and no one is left behind," Budish said. "But our challenges are significant. To be successful, our leaders at the federal, state, county and local levels must all work together. I’m confident that Congresswoman Fudge and I will work together very well.”
