Cynthia Fregiato, long-time member of the Belmont County Election Board, has stepped down to take a new position.
She is now the Belmont County Clerk of Courts.
She was sworn in by Probate Judge Albert Davies.
She replaces David Trouten, who is leaving that position after winning the race for Eastern Division Court judge in the November election.
Friends, family members and supporters were in the courtroom, along with her husband, Judge Frank Fregiato.
