• Chabad Member Becomes Solon’s Mayor

    Edward H. Kraus said it’s an exciting time for him as he prepares to become the first Jewish mayor of Solon.

    “When I moved (to Solon) 24 years ago, I wanted to get involved and become active in the community,” he said Nov. 7 after learning he had defeated fellow Solon Councilman Doug Magill in the mayor’s race.

    “But I never envisioned this moment, to be the mayor. I think it’s about all the hard work I’ve put in over the past 20 years in the community. I think it’s paid off.”

    Kraus, a member of Solon Chabad, will succeed Mayor Susan Drucker, who decided not to seek a third term. In the September primary, Kraus was the leading vote-getter over Magill by 15 votes in a three-candidate race.

    “I believe you never do anything alone. You’re only as good as your team, and I had a great team,” Kraus said. “It was a very diverse team, with different religions, nationalities and genders.

    While Kraus, a Democrat, was speaking, Magill, a Republican, came into the room to congratulate him, and Kraus called Magill “a real mensch and a real gentleman.”

    “Politics is over tonight,” Kraus said. “For Doug to come here tonight speaks volumes about his character. Now is the time to put aside all our differences and work together for the future of our community.”

    Magill, 68, turned to Kraus and said, “We have a lot of work to do.”

    “I will do everything I can to make him successful as mayor of Solon,” Magill said.
