  Ohio House Committee Interviews 15 Candidates  
  For Seat Held By Rep. Don Manning:   May 14, 2020 Edition  
      COLUMBUS, OH.---Speaker Larry Householder (R-Glenford) has announced a selection committee to review candidates seeking to fill the 59th District seat in Ohio House of Representatives, vacated by the recent death of Rep. Don Manning.
      The 59th Ohio House of Representatives district includes most of Mahoning County.
      “Representative Manning loved serving the Mahoning Valley and took great pride in his work as a legislator,” said Householder. “I hope to fill the seat with someone who has that same passion for serving the people they represent.”
      Householder has tapped Representatives Jay Edwards (Chair) (R-Nelsonville), Sara Carruthers (R-Hamilton), Tim Ginter (R-Salem), Diane Grendell (R-Chesterland), Bill Seitz (R-Cincinnati), and Reggie Stoltzfus (R-Paris Twp.) to the selection committee that interviewed candidates on Monday and Tuesday, May 11-12.
      Those who have expressed an interest in the post were expected to be interviewed, Householder said. They include:
       •Joe Alessi: Faculty member in Youngstown State’s Department of History.
       •Perry Alexandrides: Regional liaison for auditor Keith Faber.
       •Jon Arnold: CEO of the J. Arnold Wealth Management Company
       •Tracie Balentine: Co-founder of Mahoning Valley Front Line Appreciation Group (MVFLAG).
       •Atty. Alessandro Cutrona.

       •Steve Kristan: Spent over 36 years business Blue Cross, IBM, and AT&T.
       •Patrick Manning: Brother of Don Manning, has experience in property management and construction
       •Linda Mikula: Works for the Mahoning County Bar Association.

       •Christine Oliver: Former Canfield City councilwoman.
       •Kirk Susany: Owner of Susany Construction.

      Two persons who had expressed an interest in the post, Boardman Trustee Tom Costello and Compco CEO Greg Smith, withdrew their names from consideration, according to Tom McCabe, chairman of the Mahoning County Republican party.
      “We have a lot of good candidates for the post, and I am sure the creme will rise to the top,” McCabe said.
