YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Mayor John McNally announced on Wednesday that he will retain Dana Lantz as city prosecutor.

Lantz had already been employed by the city for fourteen years when former mayor Chuck Sammarone appointed her as prosecutor two years ago.

She began her career with Youngstown in 1998 working under former Law Director Bob Bush.

Mayor McNally has yet to find a deputy director of public works and a replacement for Finance Director Dave Bozanich, who is leaving the post in July.

The mayor also announced on Wednesday that he will keep assistant prosecutors Kathleen Thompson and Shelley Freeze, and appoint another assistant city prosecutor by the end of April.

Deputy Law Director Anthony Farris has submitted his intent to resign on April 23.  The mayor says he will appoint an replacement for Farris by the end of the month.
