CANTON Jason A. Clark, a consultant and former director of the Massena Business Development Corporation, was named Monday as the replacement for Sallie A. Brothers, a St. Lawrence County legislator who resigned last month due to health reasons.
Mr. Clark, Norfolk, was chosen by an ad hoc committee of fellow Democrats and appointed at a special meeting of the county Board of Legislators.
Mr. Clark said he hopes to emulate Mrs. Brothers as a legislator.
I think the most important thing is speaking to people and listening to them and advocating for those issues, he said.
Mr. Clark will fulfill the approximate one-year term left by Mrs. Brothers.
