We the citizens of Cuyahoga County support Mr. Douglas Dykes, a long time outstanding professional in Greater Cleveland whose leadership and integrity is recognized by his peers in civic and corporate communities. As a product of Cleveland State University Mr. Dykes is an exceptional example of talent and character developing in our local institutions.

As an electorate that voted for change in the political landscape to promote accountability and transparency, residents of Cuyahoga County can take note of actions taken by the county government leadership to address concerns of waste, graft and mismanagement.  However Mr. Dykes's case is a reach too far and a professional price too great for a simple error in process that is still maturing in a new county governmental and administrative system.

There was no enrichment of decision-maker or recipient, political favor passed or acceptance of goods or compensation beyond what was negotiated reasonably for a professional practice common in public and private sector opportunities. The message sent by this situation will further erode talent seeking opportunities in the public sector. 

We support dismissal of charges now.
