COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An attorney from northeastern Ohio has been chosen to fill the Youngstown-area seat of a state lawmaker who died.
House Speaker Larry Householder said a committee picked Alessandro “Al” Cutrona to represent the 59th District, which includes most of Mahoning County. The Republican from Canfield is a practicing attorney and the chief operating officer for an infectious disease medical practice, according to a statement announcing his selection and swearing-in Thursday.
In the statement, Cutrona says his priorities include creating jobs in the Mahoning Valley and improving health care infrastructure.
He replaces the late Republican Rep. Don Manning, of New Middletown. Manning died in March of an apparent heart attack during his first term in the House.
