Mahoning County Democrats have chosen an attorney to fill the remaining term of former County Clerk of Courts Anthony Vivo.

Party leaders on Wednesday tapped Dan Dascenzo for the post.

“He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and expertise as someone who’s seen the clerk’s office from every possible angle. A private attorney, a prosecutor, and a magistrate. I have no doubt he’s going to make every Mahoning County taxpayer proud.” Said Mahoning County Democratic Party Chair Chris Anderson.

Dascenzo is expected to run for a full term when the office comes up for election next year.

Vivo retired last month after holding the Clerk of Courts job for 29 years
