About Our Board Members
A seven-member volunteer board oversees the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities. Board members serve a four-year term and may be reappointed to two additional terms, for a maximum of 12 years of service.
The presiding judge of the Cuyahoga County Probate Court appoints two of the members, one of whom must be an immediate family member of a child or adult eligible for services.
Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, with the consent of the Cuyahoga County Council, appoints the other five members, one of whom must be an immediate family member of a child receiving services and the other of whom must be an immediate family member of an adult receiving services.
Currently, we are awaiting appointment of one more board member by County Executive FitzGerald. The vacancy was created by the resignation of a board member, who relocated out of state in early November 2012.
Richard V. Mazzola, President
Ara A. Bagdasarian, Vice President
Diane Roman Fusco, Recording Secretary
Dr. Maggie Jackson
