Seven Hills Service Department Director To Be Mandel’s Deputy Treasurer

That’s according to this article (and this follow-up piece) in the Parma Sun Post.  From the first article:

Bishilany, of Seven Hills, described his job in Columbus as to oversee daily operations of a chief operating officer and various directors comprising a staff of 141 at a salary greater than he is now being paid.

Bishilany said he was given to understand he was the first choice by Mandel, a Republican who defeated incumbent Democrat Kevin Boyce in November.

Mandel is to be sworn in Jan. 10.

He couldn’t be reached for immediate comment.
