Promises about Government Efficiency on Fitz-O-Meter

Appoint a director of regional collaboration

Will promote collaboration among cities to save money and improve service delivery to strengthen the region while preserving the rights of the individual cities.

Create a non-compete policy between communities in the Fourth Frontier Program

"Any local government in Cuyahoga County can participate in the Fourth Frontier program, as long as they agree to not provide tax incentives or other public resources to lure companies away from other cities also participating in the Fourth Frontier program."

Save money and increase accountability through a data-based system called CountyStat

"Under the Cuyahoga CountyStat system, departments will develop, measure, track and report specific performance measures that detail service quality and responsiveness."

Post CountyStat dashboards online

"Online-accessible performance measure dashboards will be available on the county's website."

Draw on management expertise from loaned executives

"Managers from the private sector with expertise in fields such as technology integration, worker productivity, human resources and strategic planning will be invited to loan their talent to the CountyStat task force." Also "They will be accountable to the county executive and report regularly to the public and economic development commission."
