Cutrona appointed to succeed Manning in Ohio House
Alessandro Cutrona of Canfield was selected today by the Ohio House Republican Caucus to succeed Don Manning as the 59th District representative.
Cutrona was among 15 candidates who applied for the seat.
Manning died March 20.
Cutrona will fill the remainder of Manningás term, which ends Dec. 31, and will be the Republican nominee for the seat in the November general election.
Cutrona is an attorney at an Independence law firm and chief operating officer for Northeastern Ohio Infectious Disease Association in Youngstown.
“I hope that I am viewed not as a replacement for Don, but rather a person that continues his achievements and carries on his legacy,” Cutrona said.
He will face Democrat Chris Stanley of Canfield, a Youngstown city school teacher and author, during the November election.
