Legislator Shawna Black Joins the Legislature

Thursday, November 9, 2017

The Legislature welcomed its newest member, Legislator Shawna Black, representing District 11 (Town of Ithaca.) Legislator Black, sworn in at ceremonies just before the Legislature meeting, fills the unexpired term of Peter Stein, who resigned in September, and returns the Legislature to its full complement of 14 members. Legislator Black, who was elected this week to represent District 11 for the upcoming four-year term that begins in 2018, fills the current unexpired term in accordance with provisions of the County Charter.

Legislature Chair Michael Lane said he was pleased to welcome Legislator Black to the Legislature. At her swearing-in, Legislator Black thanked her family and all others who supported her during the campaign, and said she is eager to get to work.
