Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville), Chairman of the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board (CSRAB), today announced that Laura Clemens has been selected as the new Executive Director of CSRAB. Laura steps in to replace current Executive Director Bill Carleton, who announced his retirement earlier this month.

“We had a number of very qualified individuals apply for this position at CSRAB, making the decision difficult. I appreciate all those who applied for the role and for taking the time to meet with the screening panel this past week,” said Speaker Rosenberger. “Laura Clemens brings with her an abundance of experience and knowledge relative to the Statehouse and Capitol Square, and I look forward to collaborating with her to ensure that all who work in and visit the Ohio Statehouse are able to appreciate its historic character.”

A graduate of Kenyon College, Laura has a wealth of experience within the legislature and state government. She has served in a variety of roles in the Ohio House of Representatives, including legislative aide, policy aide, and journal clerk. Most notably, Laura served as both the Deputy Clerk and the Clerk of the Ohio House for the majority of her career in public service. Currently, she is the Director of Government Affairs and the Problem Gambling Program Coordinator for the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

Laura’s official start date is expected to be later this spring. Details will be announced at a later date.
