A Democratic state representative who some saw as a possible candidate for higher office is leaving the Legislature after just winning her second term.

Rep. Greta Johnson of Akron says she’ll be a deputy law director under Summit County Executive Ilene Shapiro, who Johnson calls an incredible mentor. Johnson is one of 33 Democrats in the House, in which Republicans hold a 66-member super-majority. She says the lack of movement on bills she’s proposed isn’t why she’s leaving, but it’s frustrating.
