CLEVELAND (AP) - The new chief of Ohio’s most populous county has made a few staffing changes but has yet to announce bigger employee decisions.

Armond Budish (BYOO’-dish), a former Ohio House speaker, was elected Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County executive in Cleveland in November and officially sworn in last week. He was scheduled to give an inaugural address Sunday.

A Budish spokesman confirmed to the Northeast Ohio Media Group reports (http://bit.ly/1BlUhaO ) that four special assistants were told last week they wouldn’t keep their jobs.

Budish has also announced he’ll be looking for a new clerk of courts and law director, and has named Sharon Sobol Jordan, the former CEO for the nonprofit Centers for Families and Children, his chief of staff.

Budish succeeds former executive Ed FitzGerald.
