Aurora — Former Parma mayor Dean DePiero will become Aurora’s law director, succeeding Alan Shorr, following an announcement by incoming mayor Ann Womer Benjamin. Shorr will continue in his current role through Dec. 31.
“I have a great deal of respect for [Womer Benjamin],” DePiero said. “I’ve known her a long time. We had a good working relationship when we were in the state Legislature together. I’m glad to be able to work with her and in such a great community.”
DePiero served with Womer Benjamin for five years in Ohio House of Representatives from 1999 to 2003. He went on to serve as Parma mayor for eight years from 2004 to 2012.
