Chris Ronayne: a true public servant
Honoring Mr. Chris Ronayne
Chris Ronayne began his career in public service in 1996 with the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission where he developed community reinvestment plans with municipalities across Cuyahoga County. He became Planning Director for the City of Cleveland in 2002, then Chief of Staff and Chief Development Officer overseeing over 5,000 employees and managing a budget of more than a billion dollars. After his time at Cleveland City Hall, Chris served as President of University Circle Inc., the nonprofit Community Service Corporation that leads community development, education, and safety efforts in the University Circle neighborhood, Ohio’s fourth largest job hub and Cleveland’s center of arts and culture.
While at UCI, Chris partnered on $300 million in transportation improvements, over $6 billion of community redevelopment, delivered more than 2,500 new and renovated neighborhood homes to the area, developed after-school and summer programs that engaged more than 10,000 students each year, and connected small businesses to Cleveland’s arts, education and healthcare institutions. In the summer of 2021, Chris launched his campaign for Cuyahoga County Executive.
