After the last Schuylkill County Clerk of Courts resigned amid scandal, one party says it knows who's right for the job.

After the last Schuylkill County clerk of courts resigned amid scandal, one party says it knows who's right for the job.

County Democratic leaders are recommending attorney Thomas Campion Junior be appointed to the spot, which was left empty when Stephen Lukach resigned last week.

Lukach is under investigation for allegedly misappropriating county funds but has not been charged with anything.

In the meantime, former deputy clerk Paul Steffanic has taken over the position.
