Peter J. Corrigan is a candidate for Cuyahoga County Executive in 2018.

He has also held a number of Board directorships with responsibility for more than $300MM+ in revenue.

Corrigan is running for County Executive to complete the reforms of county government that were begun back in 2009. Corrigan stated that “The passage of a Cuyahoga County Charter was just the beginning of the end of a corrupt system. To bring jobs and business growth back to our County we need to clear out the entrenched political class and replace it with new leadership.”

Corrigan was Chief Operating Officer of Prestolite Electric from 2003-2010, and also served on Prestolite’s Board of Directors, and later as Senior Advisor to the Chairman of the Board of First Atlantic Capital Corporation.

In 2010, Corrigan was recruited by his community to run for U.S. Congress. He resigned his position at Prestolite, campaigned, and won the primary, becoming the Republican nominee for Ohio’s 10th District. Corrigan outperformed all prior Republican nominees in the 10th District and earned 44% of the General Election vote against a six-term incumbent. Immediately following the race, Corrigan returned to the private sector as a consultant to First Atlantic, and since that time also has advised various companies on transportation, medical equipment, construction, energy, and aircraft businesses, among others.
