When day breaks on April 26, Joe Schiavoni, Ohio State Senator, will have stepped down from his position as minority leader in the State House to place a greater emphasis on his recent bid for the Governorship.

The members of the Ohio Democratic Caucus unanimously elected Kenny Yuko of Richmond heights to take the position as minority leader, according to a statement from Schiavoni’s office.

Schiavoni said in a statement on April 19 “It has been an honor to serve as minority leader for the past three years,” adding his admiration of the Ohio Democratic Party’s accomplishments in recent years.

The decision comes just two weeks after Schiavoni visited Canfield High School to participate in a live town-hall event hosted by The Cardinal.

The conversation was focused on issues concerning education and jobs–as well as other matters important to Ohioans such as the opioid crisis.
