NILES -- After 18 years as a bookkeeper in the city auditor's office, Charles Nader will complete the remaining year of city Auditor Neil A. Buccino's four-year term.
Niles' Democratic precinct committee appointed Nader to the post Wednesday.
Buccino retired Sept. 30 and said Nader was interested in the 53,000-a-year job. Buccino said his immediate plan is to spend more time with his grandchildren.
Christ Michelakis, chairman of the Trumbull County Democratic Party, said Nader has been chief deputy auditor for years and knows the job.
Michelakis asked that anyone interested in the city auditor's post to send r & eacute;sum & eacute;s to party headquarters after Buccino announced he would retire, leaving his latest four-year term a year early.
Buccino was first elected to the post in 1993.
Nader's r & eacute;sum & eacute; was the only one Michelakis received.
