Capri Cafaro will lead Senate minority in January



Published: Wed, November 12, 2008 @ 2:50 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Sen. Capri Cafaro, a Democrat from Liberty, was elected leader of the chamber’s minority party Thursday, following a closed-door meeting that lasted more than two hours.

Sen. Shirley Smith, from Cleveland, will retain her post as assistant minority leader when the new General Assembly starts its session in January. Current minority leader Ray Miller, from Columbus, was elected minority whip. And Sen. Jason Wilson, from Columbiana, was elected assistant minority whip.

For the remainder of the current term, Miller, Smith and Cafaro, currently the assistant minority whip, will retain their leadership positions as-is. One leadership seat, minority whip, has remained vacant since the departure of Sen. Lance Mason, who was appointed judge on the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court.
