COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The board that oversees the Ohio Statehouse and grounds has picked a replacement for its retiring director.

The Columbus Dispatch (https://bit.ly/223qx1L ) reports the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board recently chose Laura Clemens, the director of Government Affairs for the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

Clemens was selected from among 16 candidates in a speedy hiring process. She’ll replace William Carleton, who announced in early March that he would soon leave his post after serving for a decade.

The Statehouse board’s chairman, House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, says Clemens understands the building and the people in it after previously working as clerk of the House.

The Kenyon College graduate also has worked as a legislative aide and had other positions in the House.
