Please Spell Ed FitzGerald's Name Correctly

Remember the big G, or theres the door.
  • "Remember the big G, or there's the door."

Mark Naymik over at the PD has this fantastic little tidbit about the Cuyahoga County exec: it seems we're not the only ones who forget to capitalize the "G" in Fitz's name sometimes. And it's happened enough with even his own employees that Ed's senior staff recently got this note from his administrative assistant:

"Effective immediately, regardless of deadlines or emergencies, Ed will no longer sign letters, contracts, documents, etc. that does not have his name spelled properly (Edward FitzGerald). Additionally, please remember that his last name does have a capital G and should be used accordingly. I have also be informed to please return any documents that does not conform with his instructions to the sender."

She could have added: "An easy way to remember is just to spell it like the 19th-century English write Edward FitzGerald spelled it, and you'll be good. Simple, really."

Oh, one more note: he uses "Edward" on official documents, not Ed.

So, "Ed Fitzgerald" is definitely a no-no. As is Eddie Fitz, Edward Fitzenhands, E. FitzGerald, Senor Ed, and never ever Edwardo de la Fitza.
