Eddy and his wife Bonnie moved to Solon 24 years ago. Like many of their friends and neighbors, they chose Solon to raise their family, build a life and become part of the Solon community. Like many of us, they became involved in the schools, their neighborhood, coaching recreational sports teams and working to make Solon a great community – welcoming, innovative and responsive.
For the past 16 years, Eddy has dedicated himself to building a better future for Solon and maintaining its position as one of the premier communities in Ohio. Eddy has been a leader in building a collaborative, bipartisan approach to running our city.
His efforts have been a key part of establishing Solon as a safe community with responsive city services, state of the art infrastructure and a business friendly environment that has enabled Solon to grow and create a diverse, financially sound, creative city poised to make its future even brighter than its past.
Eddy’s professional life has mirrored his personal life. For Eddy it’s all about serving our community and improving the lives of people in Solon and Cuyahoga County. He has served as an assistant county prosecutor, assistant attorney general and is currently serving as Director of Regional Collaboration for Cuyahoga County.
I am very proud to unequivocally support and endorse Eddy Kraus to be the next Mayor of Solon. From the day I became a member of city council, Eddy stepped up to teach me the intricacies and nuances of our city government. It was obvious from the start that he truly loved the city and served on city council for the sole purpose of making Solon the great city that it has become. Eddy is one of the most honorable people I know and has shown through his service to our City that he is the person who will make our City proud.
Ed is and has been a dedicated and responsive representative to the residents of his ward and Solon as a whole. I believe Ed possesses the integrity, demeanor, professionalism, knowledge and a vision to lead the City of Solon well into the future.
