CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cuyahoga County Executive Ed Fitzgerald is campaigning for the Ohio Governor's Office while the county is handing out merit raises to lucky non-union county workers on June 21.

Bonuses up to $1,500 a pop will be handed out on top of a one percent raise for some on June 7. 

19 Action News sources say during former Cuyahoga County Auditor Frank Russo's administration, bonuses and merit payments were handed out like candy to workers before major elections. 

19 Action News wants to know why Ed Fitzgerald would go along with $1,500 bonuses for some employees when more than 1800 workers with the county have left, been laid off or fired over the past five years?  

So far Ed Fitzgerald has not gotten back to us with a response.
